GDS stands for Global Distribution System and it is basically a central reservation system enables travel agencies and their clients to access travel data, shop for and compare reservations options and book travel.

It is an online system or network that functions across the globe and connects the travel service providers or vendors to the travel agencies in real-

time, by providing a centralized service that covers the bookings of airlines tickets, car rental, hotel rooms and more.

It allows travel agents to access, in real-time, availability, feature and prices for hotels, airlines, rental car companies, and additional travel services worldwide.

The influential global distribution systems are Amadeus, Sabre, Galileo, and Worldspan. This allows users to buy tickets from various providers or different airlines.

GDS can link services, rates, and bookings that combine a variety of products and services in all three travel sectors: e.g., airline bookings, hotel reservations, and car rentals.

Early customers of the Global Distribution System are travel agents and travel companies (web and office-based) to place orders on various reservation systems run by vendors.

Independent travel agents, travel agencies and online agents are now using an increasingly sophisticated GDS system to find the best travel and accommodation and rates for their clients.
