FAIRDEALS is a travel solution portal from a technology startup company called CloudStar Technologies Modern Solutions Private Limited, based out of Bangalore. CloudStar’s predominant focus is not travel business vertical but rather providing IT solutions for various sectors out of which travel sector is one among.
We would prefer or be happy to make you understand about the concept rather than promoting ourselves with a title about us. In order to do that, we need to dive little bit deeper. People who knew about DNS, distributed systems, there may not be any takeaways, maybe you can relate it and understand it better. But people doesn't know how travel sector functions then it will be informational.
As you all aware a good old concept called GDS, which is Global Distributed System to distribute some concept globally, in our context GDS enables transactions between travel industry service providers, mainly airlines, hotels, car rental companies, and travel agencies. The GDS mainly uses real-time inventory (for e.g. number of hotel rooms available, number of flight seats available, or number of cars available) to service providers. Travel Agencies traditionally relied on GDS for services, products & rates to provision travel-related services to the end consumers. Thus, a GDS can link services, rates and bookings consolidating products and services across all three travel sectors: i.e., airline reservations, hotel reservations, car rentals. Bus is local to us, so who has all bus details & inventory could provide this service. In South India RedBus could do this & they are doing this If I'm right
Now let’s see who provides and how do they provide these services. As you all aware that top 6 companies in travel sector such as Amadeus, Sabre, Galileo, Expedia, Tripadvisor and Travelocity distributes seats availability details in the form of APIs to their customers who paid licenses for this API services, these companies subsequently sells this to their customers and the fun part is everyone adds their markups and infact big travel companies also in this chain and this is way the entire sector functions. So, when you book your tickets you will have to see in what level your travel agency is in, you cannot book in the top-level companies because they are not providing this service directly to consumers, so obviously you depend on any ticket selling agencies/vendors. If they are at the 10th level obviously the cost will be more, but if your agency is direct customer of any level 2 / 3 providers then the cost will be less.
Now come to FAIRDEALS, we are also in this chain, but our supplier is level 3 service provider, which is the reason why you see the difference in our pricing. Infact you can compare our price with all big players in this business as well. Though you see their pricing 100 – 200 rupees lesser but when you book you will end up paying some unexpected convenience fee or service fee or some other name, but with us what you see is the final pricing. Hence use FAIRDEALS for your ticketing needs and trust us we provide better pricing in comparison with all others even big players.
