Why a Tour Operator System Is a Great Solution for a Travel Agent?

Why a Tour Operator System Is a Great Solution for a Travel Agent?

A Tour Operator System is a sophisticated application tailor-made to support the operations required to run a successful, efficient travel company or tour operator business. A well-designed tour operator system will allow you to create bespoke tour packages, manage products, quotes, reservations and accounts, with interfaces designed for agent, client and supplier transactions.


Why a Travel Agent Would Choose a Tour Operator System?

Tour Operator Systems enable you to upload stock - whether it's hotels, flights, cruises or attraction tickets. They can also pull through data from multiple third-party suppliers - whether it's hotels, resorts, flights, transfers, car hire, leisure activities or attraction tickets.

Naturally, this gives you a competitive edge because you'll be providing exclusive, niche offerings. That's because most travel agents are just reselling other people's products. By being able to upload your own portfolio of stock - and combine this with third-party stocks - you'll be providing unique holiday packages. This gives more choice to the end-user and, of course, is a fantastic marketing opportunity!


Savings in Efficiency & Costs

A well-designed and developed custom Tour Operator System can provide great efficiency savings.

Prices for services are automatically calculated meaning that you don't need convoluted spreadsheets. Moreover, financial reporting is available at the click of a button allowing you to easily check margins. This automation removes the need for manual processes meaning that employee resources can be used elsewhere within your organisation.

With a good Tour Operator System, your customers can research and book the essentials of any bespoke tour, including flights, accommodation, hire cars, excursions and tours, local transfers, cruises and a whole host of additional extras that go into developing the range and choice of tours that your customers demand.


Flexibility & Scalability

One of the great things about online Tour Operator Systems is that they are flexible and can be used for different businesses in different sectors. This means if you are a travel agent, tour operator, flight company, airline, holiday park, hotelier or visitor attraction - this software is perfect for you.

In the rapidly evolving travel marketplace, it's imperative that your company keeps up-to-date with the latest technologies to be able to provide an efficient, well-oiled service and maximise commercial opportunities.

If you're a travel company looking to streamline your operations, then our developers can design and build a bespoke Tour Operator System to suit your requirements.

Furthermore, we design and develop travel websites which can integrate with your Tour Operator System. Our e-commerce solutions have processed over £1 billion worth of transactions worldwide, with approximately £1.5 million of revenue generated in online sales every day.
