Worldspan Connection to Home&Abroad Gives Agents a Valuable New Destination Planning Application
ATLANTA, June 20-- Worldspan travel agents in the United States and Canada are the beneficiaries of a new travel services agreement between Home&Abroad and global travel technology provider Worldspan, L.P.
After a trip is booked in Worldspan, travel agents are able to use the online link to Home&Abroad´s Trip Planning application for value-added customer service.
