TTI’s first TTIhub Networking Evening
Wednesday 21 March 2018
82-84 St. Martins Lane, Covent Garden, London, WC2N 4AG
This was the launch event for Travel Ledger – the travel settlement platform built on blockchain technology
The evening saw the launch of a trail-blazing new initiative – Travel Ledger – a blockchain based settlements system set to revolutionise payments and settlements for travel industry ground products.
Travel Ledger is an industry owned and run billing and settlement platform for the travel industry that promises to highly automate the travel purchasing process along the entire distribution chain. Based on Blockchain technology, Travel Ledger will replace the current billing, reconciliation and settlement process to make it fast, easy and inexpensive to transact non-airline provided travel services. The Travel Ledger platform will allow all billing records between buyers and sellers of travel products to be stored in a shared, decentralised and authenticated ledger, establishing a “single source of truth”” for all parties. Furthermore, it will support settling or recording of payments in a secure and transparent manner; without the need for funds to be managed or held by a third party.
Travel technology companies already involved in the project include Dolphin Dynamics, Intuitive (UK) and Tourism Technology (AU). Other selected travel technology companies and a major OTA are already in discussion about joining the project, in either a synergistic capacity or as founders, to bring the project to market; before ultimately handing over to the Travel Ledger Alliance, a not-for-profit organisation that will govern the platform going forward.
