Amadeus is responding to the industry’s need for personalised destination activities in one location through its Destination Content – a marketplace where consultants can book and purchase products.
Working with City Discovery (a VELTRA® company), TurboJET, World Airport Transfer, and Jayride, the marketplace offers Agents access to some 9,000 unique tours and activities, airport transfers and ferry services.
With this content in one place, Amadeus believes Travel Agents will be able to more easily offer their clients personalised journeys while also saving time on price comparisons, saving money (Amadeus Destination Content has up to 10 percent lower prices than retail) and peace of mind through 24/5 customer support.
Aleth Jesame Del Mundo from Fortune Travel International Inc, who has been using the solution since 2016, says the marketplace “provides everything that we need”.
“The wide range of destination content available helps us to save time researching requests to book local events, restaurants and other activities.”

“The booking and confirmation process is quick and easy, it’s practically effortless. It helps us to streamline the entire process so that we can easily plan trips for our travellers from beginning to end – with more local product offerings and higher commissions.”
Frédéric Barou, Vice President, Travel Channels, Products & Operations, Asia Pacific, added: “Online tours and attraction gross bookings will more than double from $9 billion in 2015 to $21 billion in 2020.”
“We are excited to bring our new Destination Content marketplace to the region as it will bring huge benefits to both travel agents and travellers. Amadeus Destination Content will empower travel agents to deliver the right content to travellers at the right time, shaping one-of-a-kind travel experiences for travellers at every point of their journey.”
Already launched in Philippines, Amadeus Destination Content is gradually being rolled-out in Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Taiwan.
