Serko Online Selected by Queensland Government for Online Travel Booking

Auckland, New Zealand. 30 June 2014 - Serko Online, the Australasian leader in online travel booking for business, announced that Australia’s Queensland State Government has selected Serko Online to support its corporate travel program.

Following an extensive evaluation process lasting six months, the Queensland Government selected Serko Online to take over their Travel Management System, awarding a two-year contract.

Darrin Grafton, Serko Online chief executive officer said “this is a key win for the Serko team in Australia. It demonstrates that Serko Online has the feature set and the content required by state and federal government agencies. We have worked hard over the last year to bring in low-cost carrier content and deliver key features such as airline stored credit management and post ticketing changes that differentiate Serko from other travel booking suppliers.”
