LONDON, U.K. -- Gett Business Solutions, a provider of ground transportation technology and management, and Carey International, Inc., a global provider of premium chauffeured services, announced Feb. 22 that Carey rides are now available on Gett Business Solutions ground transportation management platform.
Carey services are available for booking immediately on the Gett web and mobile applications.
The integration allows users of the applications to book Carey’s services in more than 1,000 cities worldwide alongside Gett’s other transportation options including black taxis and standard and premium vehicles. It creates a complete portfolio of ground transport solutions that meet the needs of any level of business traveler.
“We see the need for consolidated digital marketplaces where corporate travel programs can book and manage rideshare services alongside traditional transportation options from a single interface and we are pleased to be the exclusive provider of the highest-end solutions on the Gett Business Solutions platform.” said Sandy Miller, CEO of Carey International Inc., in a press release. “This is an important step forward not just for Carey and Gett, but for the entire business travel ecosystem.”
While Gett Business Solutions aggregates vehicle pricing and availability from thousands of fully-vetted suppliers, Carey is the only provider whose brand is indicated to the end user at the point of sale.
“Carey further enhances the wide range of fleets available to our corporate clients worldwide," Gett UK CEO Matteo de Renzi said in the releases. "Gett Business Solutions offers the very best in flexibility, analytics, cost savings and service. Thanks to this partnership we’re able to offer some of the best premium chauffeur services in the marketplace, which are heavily in demand by business travel programs around the world.”
This integration is the first tangible step of the global partnership between Carey International and Gett Business Solutions first announced in 2017.
