Adventure Engine Opens Lucrative Online Door

Introducing Travel Connect 2.0Tour operators of all sizes now have an easy, cost- effective way to offer and manage their adventure and experiential tour inventory on-line. Adventure Engine Inc.'s new TRAVEL CONNECT 2.0 uses a standard XML schema specifically for tour operators in the adventure industry.
"Adventure Engine's new technology makes the adventure travel market accessible to travel agents who could not previously access these popular tours, despite the growing demand for them," says CEO Amber Hayes. A majority of boomers consider themselves adventurous (55%) and nearly 8 in 10 boomers (77%) consider their own travel experiences more adventurous than those of their parents.* Many are looking to fulfill life-long dreams.
Adventure Engine helps operators and agents effectively meet that thirst for adventure and cultural, spiritual or educational experiences by managing all aspects of tour operators' agent interfaces, partners and distribution channels, including on-line sales. A single XML feed, managed by Adventure Engine, will dramatically improve operations and reduce costs for operators.
Adventure Engine has aggregated over 1500 adventure and experiential travel trips onto a centralized database (GDS - global distribution system). The firm can now take that content and negotiate API (Application Interfaces) and large distributor agreements, putting their client's trips in front of tens of thousands of travel agents. Real-time available seat inventory is loaded, making it easy for agents, resellers, distributors or partners to book trips. When a seat is booked, the inventory is updated automatically on both the Adventure Engine database and the supplier's own reservation system, using XML schema technology.
