FOCALPOINT SHOPPING
General overview
Focalpoint Shopping provides a cryptic terminal emulation transaction (FS) to both leisure and corporate agencies to perform fare shopping from the Focalpoint window. It revolutionises and merges the cumbersome manual comparison of tariff data and seat availability into a single request. Integrating this new workflow into business processes will save time and give faster access to lower fares. It increases efficiency and improves customer service.

Focalpoint Shopping now provides instant access to the wealth of Galileo 360° Fares and searches for low fare options and available flights using a fast and efficient cryptic transaction incorporating a wide variety of options to customise and streamline the search: •

Focalpoint Shopping is able to interrogate all public, private and net fare content housed within the Galileo 360° Fares database



Up to 8 flight segments are handled by a single request



Up to 9 passengers can be included in each transaction



One-way, round-trip, circle trip, single and double open-jaw itineraries supported



Low fare searches can be performed with or without booked itinerary



Pricing and Availability modifiers can be used to influence the search process and provide customised results

Focalpoint Shopping returns many flight and price combinations. It is fast and easy to use. A multitude of modifiers allows the travel professional to refine the search in compliance with client expectation. This new tool will now allow travel consultants to respond to requests for complex travel itineraries more quickly and with ease.
