Statewide Procurement Division (SPD) secured a contract with National Travel Systems to provide state travelers with reservation and ticketing services for airlines, rail and bus travel, rental cars, and hotels.
National Travel Systems can book travel bundles, but if State travelers are looking for a hotel only, they are required to use Hotel Engine as their primary source for reserving a room.
State agencies are required to use NTS contract for reservations requiring travel agency services. This contract is also available to institutions of higher education and all State of Texas Cooperative Purchasing Program members who are travel eligible.
