Start-up business to business distribution platform for holiday
rental properties has integrated its technology with tour operating
technology specialist Intuitive.
The connection provides Pathway GDS's almost 100,000 holiday
homes through Intuitive's iVector system which powers online agents
such as Lowcost Holidays.
Andrew Nicholson, commercial and distribution director at
Pathway GDS said: "This partnership represents a key milestone in
the expansion of the distribution network that Pathway GDS offers
to our supplier clients.
"Intuitive work with some of the best OTAs and operators in the
sector who we know will be a great match for the range of holiday
homes that we have available."
Pathway GDS aggregates a range of product from apartments and
villas to chalets, gites, condos and castles.
Around 95% of its portfolio is instantly bookable and all
properties are supplied by professional rental businesses, travel
agencies and operators.
Paul Cummings, commercial director for the UK & Ireland at
Interhome, a Pathway GDS supplier said: "We are working closely
with Pathway GDS to gain access to additional distribution channels
and are excited about the new business that will be generated by
being available on the iVector platform."
Intuitive's clients can now access multiple suppliers of holiday
home properties through one connection giving them access to what
Pathway GDS claimed is one of the fastest growing product
categories in the travel sector.
Andy Keeley, Intuitive commercial director of Intuitive said:
"It's important for us to continue to expand the product supply in
"We have over 60 accommodation suppliers in iVector, 120 across
all products, and we're committed to further growing our
connections to be able to offer our clients product that will help
them drive revenues. We certainly believe that Pathway GDS will
help do that."
