Traveltek Group Ltd has made its debut in North Asia, bringing its dynamic packaging and cruise booking technology to a regional office in Hong Kong headed up by Simon Leung, who previously held senior roles with Amadeus and Travelport in Asia.
Leung joins Traveltek as business development manager North Asia and is responsible for the Hong Kong, Macau, China, Taiwan, South Korea and Japan markets.
The company’s software allows travel professionals to hand-pick every component of a complex itinerary and sell it as one package, including flights, hotels, cruise, tours, transfers, car rental, attractions tickets and cruise. Traveltek partners can also take advantage of a single API connection to more than 300 global industry suppliers including consolidated cruise content from 190 of the world’s leading lines.
Leung said: “Traveltek has the potential to revolutionise the way in which travel companies in North Asia sell travel… There is still work to be done to educate the Asian travel industry about the potential of the cruise market, but as companies start to realise its revenue- and commission-earning benefits, Traveltek has a key role to play in providing the technology to help them maximise sales.
“Not only do we offer the Cruise Super Itineraries (CSI) solution, which enables agents to use select components of a custom cruise itinerary and sell them as one single package, but our cruise content is second to none, providing in-depth detail on product, from cabin grades to their location on the deck – a great selling tool.”
