MIAMI-BASED travel technology firm Odysseus sees “tremendous opportunity” in the APAC market, president and ceo Monish Luthra told TD during a visit down under this week.

The company “connects the dots” between agencies and suppliers and specialises in cruise and flight, but also covers hotel.
“We have about six to eight new cruise lines going live in the next six to eight months as well so we’re adding a lot of content within the platform,” he said.

In coming weeks Odysseus will launch a dynamic packaging, allowing users to book a cruise, flight and a hotel, which Luthra believes “is a very big piece for this region”.

Odysseus is also working on a number of improvements, including making the search function 10-20 times faster. Luthra said what makes Odysseus stand out from competitors is its features which allow clients to better market their product. Clients can set up defined groups and send differing pricing and marketing messages for each, depending on their relationship.
