Amadeus matches Sabre with hotel commissions scheme

Sunday, 01 Dec, 2006 0

Amadeus has unveiled a matching global hotel commissions initiative to Sabre’s, claiming to have “pioneered” a solution for travel agents to track and claim hotel booking commissions.

Amadeus Worldwide Commission Manager will also be launched at Hedna next month, the same as Sabre Worldwide Commission Manager (see separate story).

Like Sabre, Amadeus also worked with Spanish firm Worldwide Payment Systems (WPS) to develop the commission tracking solution.

Amadeus Worldwide Commission Manager offers agents a single point of information where they can track and manage hotel commissions. It will be available to agents and hotels linked through the Amadeus distribution system, enabling travel agents to track and claim commissions where necessary.

Pierre Matuchet, head of hotel distribution at Amadeus, claimed “Amadeus Worldwide Commission Manager is a genuine breakthrough for the hospitality industry because it will underpin the commissions payment cycle, creating confidence in the system for both travel agents and hotels.

“This helps to open up the GDS even more as a sales channel for hotels and makes them significantly more attractive to travel agents. Travel agents will feel they have visibility and control, and are able to judge which hotels are the most reliable partners.

“Amadeus has taken the step of launching Worldwide Commission Manager because we believe it will make a real contribution to the development of the industry.” 

WPS CEO Pedro Fernández-Salvador said: “Over 80,000 travel agencies connect to Amadeus to book over 70,000 hotel properties. This new solution will benefit these travel agencies as well as the travel industry as a whole.”
