World Travellers Group, the New Zealand-based retail travel network, has made a significant investment in its future by signing a new multi-year technology agreement with Travelport.
The company, which has more than 25 outlets and mobile travel businesses across New Zealand, will continue to provide its agents with access to the Travelport point-of-sale system, Smartpoint, enabling them to search for and book products from more than 400 airlines, 650,000 hotels and 36,000 car rental locations worldwide.
They are also able to access improved graphical content and enhanced product descriptions through Travelport’s Rich Content and Branding solution, which features Air New Zealand, Virgin Australia, Solomon Airlines and Fiji Airways.
“After a comprehensive tender process and analysis all of the available technology providers, World Travellers is pleased to announce that it has once again chosen Travelport as our preferred partner. It is clear that Travelport’s technology continue to be the right fit for the future success of our business. We very much look forward to working with the Travelport team in the years to come,” said Eden Stevenson, CEO of the World Travellers Group.
