Traveltek upgrades cruise bookings

SINGAPORE, 1 December 2017: Traveltek Group Ltd, which recently opened offices in Singapore and Hong Kong, unveiled its next-generation cruise booking platform to the Asian market at this week’s CruiseWorld Asia.

Traveltek CruiseNX offers travel and cruise specialists a raft of improved features that promise to drive productivity for travel agency users.

The next-generation platform, available for desktop and as a new B2C website, has been developed in partnership with some of Traveltek’s major clients in key markets worldwide.

The booking tool delivers the content of 190-plus cruise lines and offers a dynamic packaging tool with flight and hotel options.

“We are taking a major leap forward in helping the Asian travel industry drive more cruise sales via all distribution channels,” said Traveltek global sales director, Peter Whittle.

Asian cruise bookings have quadrupled between 2012 and 2016, growing from 775,000 to nearly 3.1 million passengers – a 41% compound annual growth rate, according to the 2017 Asia Cruise Trends report by Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA).

“With passenger set to jump by more than a million this year to an estimated 4.24 million and more than 2,086 cruises and voyages scheduled, up from 1,628 in 2016, the time is right for the Asian travel industry to jump on board this trend,” said Whittle.

Traveltek showcased CruiseNX and its full range of travel technology solutions at CruiseWorld Asia, which took place at the Raffles City Convention Centre, Thursday.
