TUI Integrates into Juniper Travel Technology XML Portfolio
TUI Group, one of the world’s leading travel and tourism businesses of business origin, has extended its Tours & Activities distribution by connecting with Juniper Travel Technology, a global travel technology company specialising in online solutions and connectivity.
Juniper TravelTech clients now have access to TUI’s portfolio of over 88,000 excursions, activities and attraction tickets, available in over 100 countries. Initially, TUI’s portfolio will be available as a standalone catalogue, but it will become a part of Juniper’s packaging and call centre modules in the future. The synergy with Juniper Travel Technology continues the expansion of TUI’s digital distribution and strategic growth in Tours and activities.
Nishank Gopalkrishnan, the Chief Business Officer of TUI Musement, the Tours & Activities division of TUI Group, said, “This cooperation is a win-win, enabling TUI and Juniper Travel Technology to expand their offering and reach new customers. A strong focus on our customers’ needs has driven us to build a highly curated portfolio of the world’s most relevant experiences, which we are delighted businesses can now seamlessly integrate through Juniper’s market-leading technology solutions.”
Juan Mateos, General Manager at Juniper Travel Technology, said, “We work with the best businesses and provide the best products; collaborating with TUI was therefore inevitable and we are delighted to offer their excursions, activities and attraction tickets to our clients. We have pioneered innovative and frictionless digital integration, and TUI is known the world over for its top-quality products and customer service – this is an exciting collaboration for both businesses.”
In 2022, TUI sold over seven million experiences and is one of the largest organisations in the travel and tourism industry. TUI’s portfolio of experiences can be integrated immediately, in its entirety or as a customised selection based on business parameters. TUI has the largest product sourcing team in the travel and tourism industry, and experiences are assessed against strict standards in terms of quality, Health & Safety and sustainability, including Green & Fair experiences, an industry certification based on the criteria of the GSTC.
