What is the GDS?

GDS stands for Global Distribution System. The GDS is a group of seperate electronic booking and travel distribution companies that operate by shared rules and responsibilities.


Another term used is IDS, which stands for Internet Distribution System.  It's another bunch of companies, sometimes parts of companies that operate the same way as the GDS, but the results come more from online sources.
