Amadeus has renewed its long-standing partnership with Club Travel, the Irish travel industry’s biggest independent travel agency, for a further five years.

Club Travel, a business that has established itself as a retailer of competitive airfares to leisure and corporate travellers, together with its recently acquired tour operator division, Budget Travel, has ambitious plans to jointly develop new technology with Amadeus to maintain its market position and to equip its agents to work in a more streamlined and customer-focused manner.

Colman Burke, Director of Club Travel, said: “Our business has become more and more technology focussed in order to serve the needs of our diverse customer base. After a thorough review of global distribution systems and technology suppliers, it became increasingly clear that Amadeus offers the best mix of innovative corporate travel management and online fare shopping solutions that our business needs to meet customer demand and fuel growth.”

Volker Lorenz, General Manager, Amadeus Ireland, added: “We have established an excellent rapport with the senior management and staff at Club Travel over the past six years. Today’s economy demands proven technology solutions such as Amadeus e-Travel Management for corporations, as well as our Masterpricer Fare Search tools for price-sensitive leisure and online shoppers. Amadeus is able to deliver both, and we are proud of our ability to develop innovative solutions combined with a passion for high quality local support and account management, which has resulted in a mutually beneficial partnership between our two companies.

“Our Irish team is excited about helping Club Travel exceed its targets through the deployment of Amadeus technology, and we are honoured to play such an integral part in the Club Travel success story.”
