A Global Distribution System (GDS) is a network that enables transactions between third parties and booking agents in order to provide travel-related services to the end consumers. A GDS can link services, rates and bookings consolidating products and services across all three travel sectors: i.e., airline reservations, hotel reservations, car rentals, and activities.
GDS is different from a computer reservations system, which is a reservation system used by the respective vendors. Primary customers of GDS are travel agents to make reservation on various systems run by the vendors. A GDS system have real-time link to the vendor’s database. For example, when a travel agency requests a reservation on the service of a particular airline, the GDS system routes the request to the appropriate airline computer reservations system. This enables a travel agent with a connection to a single GDS to choose and book various flights, hotels, activities and associated services on all the vendors in the world who are part of that GDS.
There are various GDS companies available in the market which provides end to end services to the users. Some of them are Amadeus, Travelport ( Galileo, Worldspan, Apollo), Sabre, Abacus, Expedia, Travelocity, Travelfusion and more. Some GDS systems (primarily Amadeus and Sabre) also have a dual use capability for hosting multiple computer reservations system, in such situations functionally the computer reservations system and the GDS partition of the system behave as if they were separate systems.
