RateGain buys DHISCO, creating a hotel distribution powerhouse

Previously known as Pegasus Distribution, DHISCO dominates the distribution of hotel content to the GDS' Sabre, Amadeus and Travelport - a perfect fit for RateGain with its 600+ long-tail hotel distribution channels.

The deal is being touted as a move to "provide the industry the most comprehensive travel and hospitality technology distribution platform," the pair's respective CEOs say in a letter to customers.

DHISCO has spent the last three years attempting to solidify its position following the split between it and reservation system provider Pegasus, where it operated originally under the THISCO name.

The addition of DHISCO to the RateGain portfolio pushes the latter further into the distribution world following its early forays into what CEO Bhanu Chopra calls "long tail distribution channels," covering over 600 online travel agencies in Asia and the Middle East.
