A New System and a Changed Industry

Today many OSSN members now have their own TRUE Code issued by the TRUE Coding System. TRUE (Travel Retailer Universal Enumeration) System's sole purpose is to help provide sellers of travel with the assignment of travel industry numeric codes that are recognized by the travel supplier community, including cruise lines, tour operators, hoteliers, and car rental companies.

Suppliers can now validate the validity of any TRUE Code issued TRUE by visiting this validation Website:

The recognition of this universal numeric code by travel suppliers will allow the travel agent or agency the privilege of booking travel products and services directly with thousands of travel industry suppliers. This numeric identification code eliminates the need to establish multiple pseudo ID numbers with individual suppliers.
