Amadeus unveils car rental solution

Amadeus is launching Amadeus Cars Easy Shopper—a comprehensive and
unique leisure car rental solution for traditional and online travel
agencies. It offers a wide range of competitive content direct from the
leading global car rental providers such as Hertz, Auto Europe and
Holiday Autos. The new solution is now available via online and offline
booking channels, including the Amadeus e-Travel platform. These first
launch partners are available within the system on a country-by-country
basis, starting with the French market.

Amadeus offers a simple way to book leisure car rental with direct
access in real-time to a wide range of car rental and brokers worldwide.
Some of the key benefits for leisure travel agencies include:

*      Access to fully inclusive prepaid rates not previously available
from a GDS

*      Increased productivity with a faster booking process

*      Providing the best car rental alternative by comparing all the
best options


Fabrice Quinquenel, Sales Director Europe, Hertz Europe commented, “It
is very important to offer our customers an easy, transparent, fast and
cost-efficient way to book their rental cars. Amadeus allows us to reach
our customers worldwide thanks to their global presence and strong
technology experience.”



“We are delighted to build upon our current car solutions by creating a
unique offering for the leisure market, demonstrating our dedication and
flexibility to provide sophisticated IT solutions to the car rental
industry. We firmly believe that Amadeus is the right technology
partner, with its proven success in the industry and its global reach,”
