Traveltek taps cruise demand

SINGAPORE, 4 April, 2018: Traveltek Group has appointed a new business development manager in Southeast Asia to help capitalise on demand for its cruise dynamic packaging technology.

Travel technology professional, Adam Tan, who joins from Sabre Travel Network (APAC) where he was an account manager for five years, will team up with current BDM, Javine Tan, at the company’s Singapore office.

Tan launched the Singapore office on behalf of the UK-headquartered firm last October.

Traveltek has since won new business from leading cruise line general sales agents and travel agencies in Indonesia, Singapore and the Philippines who are using its B2C platform to sell cruises, fly-cruise and cruise packages online to their customers for the first time.

With the company introducing cruise packaging technology that is new to market Tan heads expansion in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, the Philippines and Thailand.

“Less than six months after establishing a Singapore office, our cruise dynamic packaging technology is helping agents in Asia to sell cruises online, giving their customers access to global products via a single website,” said Traveltek Group regional director Asia-Pacific, Paul Millan.

“What we are noticing is that cruise-only bookings dominate in Singapore because many ships homeport there, while in markets like Indonesia and the Philippines, fly-cruise demand is strong, and our technology is making it much easier to book both,” he added.
