Current market overview of industry software, software and solutions for travel agencies and tour operators. The software usually supports the collection and management of master data (e.g. customers, hotels, rental cars, flights, excursions), accounting preparation, often offers modules for the transfer of flight schedules from e.g. Sabre, Worldspan, Amadeus or Galileo and helps with the preparation of offers with individual travel itineraries.
The travel agency software usually offers a CRS interface (computer reservation system) to be able to transfer booked data directly from a CRS. An essential component of online travel agency software is the Internet Booking Engine (IBE), which is used to reserve travel services and must usually be permanently connected to a CRS in order to be able to check prices and vacancies in real time. Travel agency software also offers, among other things, options for automatic fixed booking and commission planning and accounting, and supports marketing.
