GDS Air Ticketing Plans

Travel Quest Network offers three add-on GDS Subscription Plans.

What is a GDS?

A GDS, or Global Distribution System, is a specialized computer network that connects travel agents and travel suppliers. While you can book many different types of travel using a GDS, the most common types of travel booked in a GDS are air, hotel, and car rentals.

GDS systems require special technical knowledge to operate correctly, however, experienced travel agents can leverage a GDS and its many shortcuts and codes to be more efficient in a high-volume booking environment.

Which GDS's does Travel Quest Network support?

Travel Quest Network supports Worldspan, Galileo and Sabre GDS systems.

Basic Requirements

We require all GDS subscribers:

  1. To be on the Executive or Enterprise membership plans.
  2. To have two years of prior GDS experience (or comparable training from a recognized third-party GDS training program).
  3. To execute a GDS Subscription Agreement.

Add-on GDS Subscription Plans

Add-on GDS Subscription Plans vary based on usage and your desired method of ticketing.

The GDS Subscription plan you choose does NOT impact the commission revenue share you will receive. Your commission revenue share is determined based on your Agency Membership Plan and your commission revenue production.
