Rail sales and Amadeus

Amadeus, the travel industry technology provider, has announced the UK launch of Rail Display.  A simple to use rail booking tool that makes selling international rail as easy for travel agents as air travel.  It gives the power to shop, book, issue tickets and assign seats with back office integration in one flow, in order to meet the needs of the 21st century customer.

Rail Display enables agents to access the rail company’s schedules and inventory, providing a ‘single view’ of fares and availability on a single screen.  A graphical user interface makes it easy-to-use, improving agent productivity and requiring minimal training.  Fully integrated into travel agencies’ tools and processes it allows the travel sales industry to combine air, hotel and rail content in a single PNR (passenger name record).

Using the Amadeus solution, full content for launch partner Voyages-SNCF can be accessed by all accredited travel agents in the UK and Ireland.  Amadeus agents will have access to all SNCF fares, origins and destinations, and products throughout Europe including services from Eurostar, TGV, Thalys and TGV Lyria, amongst others.  www.amadeusrail.co.uk
