Galileo International, Inc.
has announced that Alamo Rent-A-Car and National Car Rental, both subsidiaries of ANC Rental Corporation, one of the world’s largest car rental companies, are upgrading to Galileo’s CarMaster Inside Availability. Providing the highest level of connectivity, more than 75 percent of all car rental bookings on the Galileo global distribution system are made through Inside Availability vendors. With CarMaster Inside Availability, Alamo and National will now provide Galileo-connected travel agents with easy access to the same real-time rates and availability as is displayed in their own reservation systems, further improving the level of customer service. CarMaster Inside Availability also eliminates the need for additional confirmation phone calls, thereby increasing agency efficiency. Car rental companies receive the benefit of dynamically controlled inventory, providing more flexibility and control over pricing and availability.
“With the upgrades of Alamo and National, Galileo confirms its place as the leading GDS in providing car rental on its system. These latest upgrades are also a great demonstration of the benefits of Inside Availability,” said Nikki Harrison, Regional Marketing Manager UK and Ireland of Galileo UK.
