About Travel Stream
Travel Stream Limited is a new UK / London based company with Directors who have spent their entire careers in the travel, hotel and serviced apartment industry – specializing in systems, sales, e-distribution and marketing.
We are passionate about our industry… and above all about the Travel Stream system that can now offer travel and hospitality providers a comprehensive series of functions over and above what the competition has to offer today.
Quite simply, the new Travel Stream system provides a real-time Content Management System (CMS) and Online Reservation Solution for hotel and serviced apartment websites that enables these operators to take full control of their content, inventory, prices and promotions in an easy, simple and low-cost way.
All of our staff have travel, hotel and hospitality backgrounds. As such, we are able to look at your business in the way that we have all been trained… i.e. from a Cost, Sales & Distribution, Maximizing Revenues, Marketing and Profit perspective.
Over the years we have learnt that many hotel and hospitality providers have become frustrated by costly web agencies and intermediaries who have tended to control their websites, bed stock and pricing… which is why we developed the Travel Stream system in the first place...
We have partnered with a very talented design and marketing agency called GQ Design, who have designed this Travel Stream website and we would be more than happy to introduce you to them for any of your design and marketing requirements.

Chief Technical Officer
Simon has been building web systems for the last 10 years, and has been developing a travel system for the last six years.
Having previously developed a trading system at Credit Suisse, Simon started his own web development business in 2001. That business has continued to grow to the present day and has provided the building blocks for the current Travel Stream system.
In 2005 Simon started working with a tour operator to build a comprehensive travel system, with a strong emphasis on hotel bookings, and coupled with his general web expertise, created a powerful booking engine that powered a number of different types of websites.
The system evolved and added lots of functionality for managing hotels, flights, clients, exchange rates and much more besides.
In parallel, Simon's business has developed a powerful content management system, which provides high quality content management solutions for almost any website requirement.
Bringing all of this together, Simon teamed up with Peter and Robert, to create a powerful combination of web, hotel and travel system expertise, and Travel Stream was born!
