Travel Portal Development
Nigeria has a booming tourism industry, with nearly 9% of its GDP coming from the sector. There are plenty of opportunities for the young, ambitious, innovative entrepreneurs to become a part of this growing market. At present, all one needs is a travel portal solution to start a travel business online.
An online travel portal can access customers both domestically as well as internationally. Every year Nigeria hosts more than 10 million international tourists. But in order to attract tourists to a travel portal, the portal needs to have some basic features. All travel agency software needs to be equipped with GDS integration services. GDS API integration allows customers to use the flight booking engine and hotel booking engine of the travel portal to get real-time data. But not all websites can be integrated with GDS APIs. API suppliers have specific website development requirements that have to be met.
So, the easiest and most affordable method to gain ownership of a GDS API compliant travel portal is to purchase the portal from a white label travel portal development company. A white label travel portal is integrated with GDS API. The website is then customized to fit the travel business’s brand name and logo and their specialized business requirements.
Choose the Right Company
One of the most experienced and reputed names among travel portal development companies is Trip Mega Mart. They create B2B and B2C travel websites which can be purchased directly by travel businesses.

The websites are customizable, and special features are available at different price points.

The travel business that purchases a website gets a one-stop destination for all travelling and tourism requirements. They can market their business as a single umbrella through which customers can plan their entire trip.
The USP of white label travel websites is the fact that they are already technologically completely equipped. The success of the business is almost halfway guaranteed. The entrepreneur just needs to find a way to successfully direct customers to their portal.
