Users of Traveltek’s market-leading booking platform in Australia will soon be able to access and make live bookings, including dynamic packaging, for all Uniworld and U by Uniworld experiences. Uniworld’s luxury river cruise itineraries, plus U by Uniworld’s soon to launch experiential river cruises have been enabled on Traveltek’s iSell and iTop platforms, available for both B2B and B2C sites.
As passenger demand for river cruises continues to soar, the addition of the world’s only authentic boutique river cruise line to Traveltek’s platform is sure to be well received by the firm’s growing, global client base.
Traveltek’s COO, Kirsty Orr, commented: “With river cruising taking centre stage as the fastest-growing sector in cruise, we are delighted to be working with Uniworld and U by Uniworld at this really exciting time. The mission at Traveltek is two-fold; to provide bookers with the most advanced technology on the market and to help them remain at the forefront of the fiercely competitive and ever-changing business of selling travel.
“The industry needs to be well equipped in order to fulfil the upturn in booking and river cruise itinerary requests. So, our partnership with Uniworld, which offers live booking capability, is a really fantastic addition to our portfolio.”
Also commenting on the union, Managing Director of Uniworld Boutique River Cruises in Australia, Fiona Dalton, said: “We are excited to partner with Traveltek to bring live booking inventory for Uniworld and U by Uniworld to a diverse group of agency partners via Traveltek’s specialised cruise online booking system.
“For us, the Traveltek integration represents another example of Uniworld’s commitment to expanding our booking channels for agents and agencies who are seeking to provide their clients with the finest luxury river cruise experiences in the world”.
Traveltek’s Director of Sales in Australia, Paul Millan, added: “I anticipate a really positive response from the trade in Australia. We are making it quick and easy for agents to do business with river cruise lines at a time when their products and services are in high demand. This latest integration on our platform will not only save bookers time, it will help them to generate more revenue-earning opportunities by upselling connecting flights, pre- and post-cruise stays.”
