The ability to add your own travel suppliers is imperative to many tour operators. However, most travel software solutions will only allow you to sell their linked suppliers. But this freedom and the ability to choose which suppliers you build relationships with allows you complete control over your packages and allows more efficient and limitless business.
At Protected Trust Services (PTS), we surveyed over 1000 tour operators and asked this very simple question: “If you were to have the most effective software solution to help you run your travel business, what would you name as number one requirement?”
80% of tour operator participants answered with, managing our own suppliers and clients effectively.
The team at PTS took this on board and have now developed, and launched, an innovative travel software system that is linked to an independent trust account, to allow PTS members to add and manage their own suppliers and clients, alongside many other time-saving functionalities.
Tour operators tend to have a vision and specialise in niche markets. With this in mind, it is no surprise that being able to add your own local suppliers to your own private software system is of utmost importance. Whether you are a niche cycling holiday company specialising in trips to Bulgaria or a tour operator specialising in luxury trips to Borneo to see the Orangutans, you will inevitably know your local market and have contacts with small suppliers you have discovered.
How The PTS Travel Software Solution works for Tour Operators and Suppliers
The PTS system gives you access to a plethora of suppliers around the globe. Any PTS member has access to our database of suppliers with preferential rates if you were to want to book more generic trips for the general traveller.
Having easy access to all the PTS API links allows you to have contingency plans at your fingertips and also allows you to grow your business faster than you thought as you have the ability to build new packages with a whole database of suppliers.
Alongside this, you can add your own suppliers. At PTS we do not want to inhibit you by just giving you set suppliers to work with. Our mission is to encourage tour operators to be as successful as possible and to work with you to support you.
Adding your own suppliers allows you to have complete control of your business and allows you to bring your dream and vision alive.
As PTS is a solution that ensures complete Package Travel Regulation compliance all you need to do is add the supplier, with all their details, to the system. Tick the addition box which alerts head office that a new supplier has been added and head office will run all the compliance checks behind the scenes.
We have made it as simple as possible for PTS members.
