Galileo signs deal with TheTrainline – 23 Nov 2006

Galileo has become the first UK global distribution system to sign a deal with TheTrainline, giving travel agents access to more than 293 million rail journey and fare combinations nationwide.

The companies have struck a five-year deal to incorporate TheTrainline’s services into the GDS’ Galileo Rail product for both leisure travel agents and travel management companies to book train tickets for customers.

Under the deal Galileo Rail will have access to the National Ticket on Departure network to provide tickets.

Bookings made through Galileo Rail can also be integrated into a single Galileo booking file to save time on adminsistration and invoicing, and allow travel agents to view their customers’ complete itineraries in one place.

Galileo, a subsidiary of Travelport, claims the system also offers simple processes for ticket refunds and administration to avoid manual paperwork.
