Travel Bulletin - - TECHNOLOGY -

Travel con­tent gi­ant GTA has an­nounced the ac­qui­si­tion of Euro­pean in­de­pen­dent in­bound sup­plier MTS Globe, mean­ing travel agents in Aus­tralia and NZ will have ac­cess to an ex­panded range of ho­tels and re­sorts in coun­tries such as Turkey, Greece, Por­tu­gal, Spain and Mex­ico. GTA’S lo­cal op­er­a­tions in­clude whole­sale travel book­ing site Trav­el­cube, and the new MTS Globe deal sig­nif­i­cantly boosts the com­pany’s pres­ence and of­fer­ing in sun and beach des­ti­na­tions. MTS Globe last year gen­er­ated gross sales of 500 mil­lion and is the pre­ferred part­ner for many Euro­pean tour op­er­a­tors, of­fer­ing 12,000 ho­tels along with a range of cus­tomised des­ti­na­tion ser­vices. “With this trans­ac­tion GTA takes an im­por­tant step to­wards ful­fill­ing its vi­sion to be the world’s eas­i­est travel dis­tri­bu­tion part­ner to do busi­ness with,” said GTA ceo Ivan Wal­ter. “MTS Globe’s large port­fo­lio in the Mediter­ranean beach des­ti­na­tions ide­ally com­ple­ments GTA’S global ac­com­mo­da­tion and des­ti­na­tion ser­vices of­fer­ing...gta will be­come a one stop shop for city and beach prod­ucts world­wide and the in­creased port­fo­lio will mean our cus­tomers can of­fer greater choice to trav­ellers.” Wal­ter said MTS Globe as well as its OTS Globe ho­tel trad­ing divi­sion will con­tinue to op­er­ate un­der their own brands and man­age­ment, with the com­bined GTA and MTS net­works giv­ing sup­pli­ers ac­cess to new mar­kets.
