September 6, 2017: Amadeus travel agents can now seamlessly book 19,000 global tours and activities in real-time thanks to a ground-breaking integration with Livn initially covering the Australia and New Zealand markets
The connection between the Livn tours and activities database and Amadeus Selling Platform Connect has just gone live following a successful trial among key agents, offering them a lucrative new income stream in a challenging marketplace.
It enables agents to instantly book an incredible selection of tours and activities around the globe from hundreds of leading suppliers like Intrepid Group, G Adventures, Disney, Gray Line, Pro-Dive and Tourism Holdings.
“This partnership with Amadeus is a breakthrough that dramatically expands our travel agency distribution footprint and is great news for our partners,” said Livn co-founder Steve Martinez.
“We have managed to automate the entire tours and activities booking process within the existing Amadeus workflow with instant confirmations and ticketing being returned in seconds.”
Tony Carter, Managing Director at Amadeus IT Pacific, said the Livn integration represents a major opportunity for agents to satisfy client demand for in-destination experiences while earning additional commissions.
“Until now the fragmented nature of the tour and activity business has always made it difficult for travel agents to book these products,” said Mr Carter
“But that’s all changed with the Livn integration.
“It’s part of a seamless booking process that gives agents the products and tools to not only cross-sell and upsell, but also give consumers what they want when they want it without the hassle of trying to book the trip by themselves.”
How does it work?
The technology provides Amadeus agents with a completely integrated tours and activities booking solution through Amadeus Selling Platform Connect. Agents can easily incorporate tours and activities into any booking with real-time availability, confirmation and pricing through Livn.
About Livn, Livn is Asia Pacific’s leading aggregator of tours and activities with 19,000 experiences including half day tours, sightseeing tours, multi-day tours and attractions across 193 countries. This segment is growing faster than the total travel market and will prove to be a very valuable source of commissions to agents.
