Owner operated and managed since its inception in 1985, Travalco is continually adapting to the ever evolving individual leisure and group travel marketplaces. The name change in 1994 from Go Florida! to TRAVALCO (an acronym for Travel Value Company or Travel Value Connection ) reflects the expanse of programs and destinations that the company has developed to presently include all of North America and the Caribbean.
Our mission is to deliver unique and memorable travel experiences for visitors to North America and the Caribbean by providing international trade-only travel companies with custom products inspired by traveler preferences.
We have developed a highly motivated and tenured team to carry out the mission of both the company and our clients. A full time staff of 50 professionals plus a seasonal team of tour directors brings the total number of Travalco experts to 100 in high season.
Travalco chooses to be exclusive a B2B company. We do not engage in direct to consumer or retail channel activities. Our selective standards enable the company to enjoy partnerships with leading tour operators and wholesalers from 56 countries across all continents as well as having access to accommodation product and pricing that is restricted to tour operators only.
Travalco has several solutions for access to our product; next to our classic Citrix based solution Reservation System we also have a full web version with a user friendly interface which was developed based on feedback from client focus groups. Both versions can be used next to each other and enables your staff to benefit from the advantage of direct access to availability and instant confirmations of our product inventory. The features of the system are constantly enhanced to sustain the demands of the ever-changing marketplace.
Our core systems are housed in an off-site enterprise class data center with multiple redundant backbones and 24/7 managed services to maintain the highest possible availability.
Travalco is preparing the install of a completely renewed core reservation system for the 2015 booking season which will enable us to feature a substantial enhancement in the capability to offer dynamic inventory and rates in conjunction with our core static product to ensure best pricing and availability possible.
Classic XML API: The current Travalco XML API is an ideal tool for those companies that have the desire to connect their booking engine seamlessly with the Travalco inventory. The complete booking process is handled through a secure XML interface offering 24/7 availability to rates, bookings, and cancellations of our accommodation product. Very elaborate static information and cached data is available for those companies that require these features.
An additional New XML API will be launched for the 2015 booking season that will have substantially enhanced capabilities and will allow Searching, booking, changing, requesting and validation of all our product that is bookable already through the web interface.
