Cozmo Travel, a member of the Air Arabia Group and a leading travel management company in the region, has announced the launch of B2B trade portal www.travtrolley.com for local travel and tourism industry operators in the UAE. Cozmo Travel also has tied-up with Taiwan Tourism Board to launch a new destination within UAE this year.

This was announced at a Press conference organised in Dubai by senior officials from Cozmo Travel and Taiwan Tourism Board.

www.travtrolley.com is a new online booking system, which offers single login and account to manage the complete tour package including airlines, hotels and car rentals worldwide. The user-friendly interface was developed to empower both travel agencies and corporates in the UAE and the GCC region.

Commenting on the initiative, Mr Jamal Abdul Nazar, CEO of Cozmo Travel, said, “We are proud to launch the B2B trade portal for the travel sector operators in the UAE. This is another milestone achievement for Cozmo Travel that allows us to spearhead the industry by incorporating online innovations to serve our customers well. We have also signed a contract with Taiwan Tourism Board with a range of joint promotions to increase tourism and visibility for Taiwan through Cozmo Travel network.”

“Our new online platform will be a pioneering initiative in the UAE’s travel and tourism industry. We also plan to expand this initiative to other GCC countries. The B2B portal provides both inbound and outbound holiday packages across the globe based on various seasons and interests,” he added.

Mr Vishal Mehra – VP Sales, Taiwan Tourism Board, said, “We are pleased to tie-up with Cozmo Travel in the UAE. This partnership is aimed at increasing the number of visitors to Taiwan from the Middle East, a trend that is already on an upward index. We have recognised the fact that Taiwan has a huge potential for tourism offerings to the UAE in particular, and the GCC at large, owing to the multi-cultural population in the region. The partnership with Cozmo Travel will help us further boost interest and ease the travel to the beautiful Chinese island.”

Ms Deepa Rajesh, Head of Sales at Cozmo Travel, said, “We are happy to launch the B2B portal, which is a one-of-a-kind initiative in the UAE’s travel industry. We introduced this considering the evolution of new business models in the travel industry to provide travellers more choices and assist them in making more informed decisions in the digital age. We firmly believe that technology and digital sector is the way forward and with dedication and hard work we want to be one of the best service providers in the travel and tourism industry.”

“This portal is at the forefront both technologically and in terms of services offered. We are offering hundreds of airline fares and thousands of hotel rates at the users’ fingertips with special deals on 25 plus airlines and access to multiple GDS inventories as well as various LCCs for most competitive airline fares. The rates are equal or lower than the major online travel portals. The portal is also to have on-hold airline reservations and 24/7 B2B support via call centre,” she added.

Mr Vijay GB, Head of Information Technology at Cozmo Travel, said, “Launch of www.travtrolley.com is in line with the continuing evolution of information technology putting a considerable impact on the travel agency service industry. The portal, with an inbuilt transparent and easy accounting process system, allows tracking the whole travel package including airline and hotel reservation procedures, travel insurance, activities, global sightseeing – all available on a single portal. The web portal also features “your own personalised online travel office” with booking engine.”
