GDS Genie, the first online resource dedicated to GDS training, has now launched.

The new portal, which helps agents become proficient in the three main GDS systems – Galileo, Amadeus and Sabre – is a one-stop shop for GDS training, and fills a gap in the market as a resource that helps agents upskill, particularly those who are new to the profession.

The brainchild of travel trade training and social media expert Bruce Martin, he commented: “A career in travel is much sought-after and many jobs are advertised asking for GDS experience, but it’s not easy to get official training from GDS companies unless you already work in travel; it’s a Catch-22 situation. GDS Genie enables people to learn how to use GDS via a high-quality ‘emulated’ platform. Learning a GDS increases the chances of candidates getting job offers and means they can hit the ground running.”

The only online portal to solely focus on GDS training, it will target those looking to forge a career in the travel industry, as well as experienced agents who would like to upskill.

“Some companies sell it as an add-on to their core business offering, so we’ll be different” Martin further explained, “I have more than a decade of experience selling GDS courses, which are in hot demand. The travel industry is so popular and competition for jobs is tough, so knowing how to use a GDS can really boost someone’s chances of getting ahead”
