Travelport Search Control Console

Putting you in control over the content you display

Overview

Today, travelers have a multitude of options available when searching and booking travel. Achieving repeat business and customer loyalty is increasingly difficult for travel providers. Purchase decisions are not just based on price, but also experience criteria such as: convenience, number of connections, airport locations and what’s included in an offer.

In a world where travelers are better informed than ever, they expect options presented to them on a website mobile app, booking tool or by an agent, to be relevant to their needs and circumstances.

Manage and modify content presented according to the rules you set

The market is increasingly competitive and with agency margins under pressure, the need to maximize return on every trip is greater than ever. It’s therefore key that you understand and control what content is displayed and how to make it relevant to your travelers' needs in order to drive a better experience.

When dealing with your content suppliers, it’s vital to maximize every opportunity around fare margins and commercial supplier deals through switch-selling strategies.
