e-Travel protects the integrity of its online data, affiliate program, look-to-book ratios, and GDS pull costs with Distil Networks

“The Distil deployment was perfect; I don’t think e-Travel has experienced a quicker integration, and the ongoing support has been fantastic. It’s hard to find a company as responsive and knowledgeable as Distil. But the biggest benefit Distil offers is that I no longer worry about bad bots affecting our business.”
