What is the difference between a Travel Portal and an Online Travel Agency (OTA)
The main difference between a travel portal and an online travel agency (OTA) is the scope of services they provide. A travel portal typically provides customers with access to flight, hotel, car rental, and other travel-related information, while an OTA provides additional services such as booking and customer service. OTAs also typically have more advanced features such as loyalty programs and payment processing.

What is a GDS?
GDS stands for Global Distribution System and is a computerized system used by travel agents, tour operators, and airlines to book tickets, hotel rooms, and other travel services. GDSs are used to access and compare data from multiple sources, making it easier for customers to book their travel arrangements.
What are the compliance required if a website or OTA wants to have one of this GDS integrated?
If a website or OTA wants to have one of the main GDS integrated, they must comply with the GDS's terms and conditions, as well as any applicable laws and regulations. Additionally, they may need to provide proof of identity and/or financial information, depending on the GDS's requirements.
What is IATA and is it required to integrate a GDS?
IATA stands for International Air Transport Association and is an organization that sets standards for the air transport industry. IATA is not required to integrate a GDS, but many GDS providers may require IATA certification in order to use their services.
What if we don't have IATA?
If you do not have IATA certification, we may still be able to integrate a GDS for your OTA or travel software, although some providers may require additional documentation or proof of identity. Additionally, some GDS providers may require additional fees for non-IATA customers. Consult with our team to discuss more on this.
