Traveltek signs North America partnership with Cruise Planners

Traveltek has taken over from Sabre since it announced its exit from the cruise market

Travel and cruise technology specialist Traveltek has announced its partnership with the premiere travel franchise network Cruise Planners, to power its cruise solution for their agents across the USA.

Cruise Planners, a previously longstanding Sabre customer, has more than 2500 franchise owners in all 50 states. Its franchise owners own and operate their own travel agency business.

Cruise Planners franchises will have access to over 30,000 integrated itineraries across all major ocean and river cruise lines and “exclusive” deals from thirty cruise lines around the world in a single aggregated Cruise API.

“When we were looking at partners to work with, Traveltek was the clear choice. Their years of experience and commitment to delivering a world-class product, made our decision easy,” said Brian Shultz, chief information officer of Cruise Planners. 

Rebecca Esterhuizen, SVP - North America of Traveltek, said: “We are delighted to partner with Cruise Planners. 

“I first met with the team in Coral Springs in February 2023, and it was great meeting a team who are clearly passionate about driving innovation and efficiency to their agents.

“I am really looking forward to collaborating with the team closer as we commence our partnership.”
