GetThere & GroundRez Partner for Ground Transportation Bookings

Posted on July 18, 2007 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

NEW YORK CITY— GetThere, a leading online corporate travel reservation technology, announced its ability to offer corporations a comprehensive ground booking option to supplement online travel programs. Through an exclusive online relationship with GroundRez, corporate travelers using GetThere can now book black cars, sedans, limousines, and even taxis in cities across North America and Europe.

GetThere recorded more than 10 million online corporate bookings in 2006.

GroundRez acts as a technology switch and management tool that efficiently funnels ground options from more than 2,000 providers in a concise layout that facilitates both product and price comparison. Through the new solution available to GetThere users and agency resellers, travel managers and procurement personnel can determine which ground vendors are available to their employees, ensuring vendor familiarity and proper vendor utilization. Preferred ground transportation providers are highlighted in the display, guiding both travel arrangers and road warriors as they book online.

Once the reservation is booked, confirmations and itineraries are sent via email. Travelers have direct online access to view existing reservations, and can cancel or make changes to a reservation as needed.

“Limo, sedan, and taxi spend combined is larger than car rental, yet it is unmanaged and riddled with inefficiencies,” said Tony Bonanno, president of GroundRez. “GetThere’s clients already have an aptitude for deploying travel automation that drives savings in the traditional areas of air, car and hotel; it only makes sense for GroundRez to launch by working with GetThere’s impressive client roster.” GetThere and GroundRez will exhibit at this year’s National Business Travel Association Convention & Exposition, scheduled for July 22-25 in Boston.
