This relationship enables us to build upon our trade focus by providing even more of our travel partners with our content to support them in promoting and selling AmaWaterways and river cruising.”
Perfect Business Sense
Traveltek’s Chief Commercial Officer, Cressida Sergeant, commented: “Here at Traveltek our mission is to connect the industry’s largest community of buyers and sellers worldwide, so it makes perfect business sense to partner with such a prestigious cruise operator.
“Additionally, with river cruising enjoying double digit growth year on year, it’s important that our platform is well equipped to deal with the demand. Integrating a company who was recognised as the ‘TTG River Cruise Line of the Year 2018’ at the recent Travel Awards is a very strong addition to our growing network. We’re delighted to be working with AmaWaterways at this very exciting time.”
Traveltek’s Head of Sales in the UK & MENA, Neil Welsh, added, “I foresee a really positive response to this partnership. We’re allowing our clients to diversify their own portfolio and do business with river cruise lines when their products and services are in extremely high demand. Using the most advanced technology on the market, with integrations such as this one, helps our clients remain at the forefront of what is a fiercely competitive market.”
