Overview

Our recent investments

Travelport has a clear strategy to grow our global footprint, explore new business adjacencies and invest in complementary businesses that can make our platform even more powerful, profitable and efficient for our customers.

travel-IT

Travelport has acquired a majority stake in leading German tour operator 

distribution company, travel-IT. 

travel-IT provides a platform that enables real-time offer, search and booking of pre-packaged and dynamically packaged tours from all the key tour operators servicing the leisure travel sector in Germany, to consumers who purchase from travel retailers. Travelport will bring all

 of its experience and innovation to travel-IT's business, introducing a powerful and highly competitive means of access for German tour operators to sell the widest range of products possible through on-line and off-line travel agencies. Some of the leading German tour operators also invested alongside Travelport. 

The strategic investment will significantly increase Travelport's presence and reach in the German leisure travel industry, which is Europe's largest.

eNett

We've recently increased our holding in our pioneering payment solution eNett to 73%. 

This business-to-business travel payment model issues single-use Virtual Account Numbers (VANs) through our point of sale solutions to provide our customers with a way to pay and be paid that's more efficient, more secure and less open to fraud.
 
Travel providers now get their payments faster, and automatically through the MasterCard acceptance model, which takes labor and administration costs out of their receivables.

We are now leveraging our travel commerce network to grow our share of this $780 billion addressable opportunity.

Hotelzon

This investment supports our drive to make booking independent hotels easier for business travelers and adds an additional 30,000 hotel properties to our Travel Commerce Platform, in particular, new European independent and small hotel chain properties that were previously unavailable.
