AIR

Getting you Into the Sky

We collect the very best air fares directly from suppliers and via NDC sources, giving you the freedom to choose flights and ancillaries that best suit your specific budget and needs.

HOTEL

Book the Perfect Hotel Stay

We have fostered long-standing relationships with hotel suppliers from across the globe, offering you specially negotiated rates from booking.com and Expedia alongside GDS content.

RAIL

Always on the Right Track

With access to a wide range of ticketing options, including full content from UK, European and North American train operators, contact us by phone, email or online and we’ll be sure to get your journey started on the right track.

CAR & TAXI

For When You’re on the Ground

Secure the very best deals on car hire and taxi services via content we source through our negotiations with trusted suppliers such as GroundScope – each one flexible on price and car type.

RETAIL CONTENT STRATEGY

We shop around for the best fares, so you don’t have to

We operate in a volatile pricing market. When it comes to ensuring our clients get the best fares and rates, our retail content strategy is key to countering the challenge of “I can find it cheaper on the internet”. Through our YourTrip platform, we provide content and pricing parity regardless of how a booking is made and managed (online, offline or both).

Content is sourced from the GDS and from the internet via supplier API’s. Such is our success that we are the number one TMC consumer of BA NDC content in the UK (40% of transactions, 10%+ saving compared to GDS) and the number two TMC consumer of Expedia Affiliate Network content (50%+ of hotel transactions).

PERSONALISED OFFERS

NEW DISTRIBUTION CAPABILITY (NDC)

Get access to a greater choice of enriched air content without the hassle of shopping around.

NDC was developed by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) back in October 2012, revolutionising the way in which air travel content was distributed and purchased. Gray Dawes were one of the early adopters of the standard. It allows us to put our customers at the very centre of the travel experience and saves them from the hassle of trawling through innumerable sources to find the air products they are looking for.

The numbers speak for themselves –  82% of fares are on routes flown by NDC airlines, and a third of what we sell is cheaper than a traditional TMC.
