A computer reservations system (CRS) or central reservation system is an automated system employed to store and recover information and carries out transactions associated with air, travel, car rental, hotels etc. Initially intended and operated by airlines, CRSes were later on widened for the use of travel agencies. Key CRS operations that book and sell tickets for numerous airlines are called as global distribution systems (GDS). Airlines have relieved most of their direct holdings to devoted GDS companies who make their systems available to consumers through Internet gateways. Recent GDSes usually let users to book hotel rooms, airline tickets, vehicle reservations etc. They also give access to bus reservations and railway reservations in some markets, though these are not always incorporated with the system.
