Neat Group, Inc. (Neat), the
industry leader in real-time dynamic packaging, has launched a new consumer
(SM). NeatTravel is a comprehensive online travel tool
that enables travelers, for the first time, to automatically create their own
personalized electronic packages, or E-Packs(SM).
E-Packs combine travel
services from major airlines, hotel and car rental companies into a single
low-price transaction for the dates, times and places specifically selected by
the traveler. Travelers can mix and match air and car options, save their
favorite E-Pack search and come back to check it again and again until they`re
ready to buy.
“Travelers save time and money with E-Packs because they don`t have to
search for and buy retail one item at a time. When purchasing any combination
of air travel, hotel accommodation and/or car rental, consumers can let
NeatTravel do the work. With one simple search, they can create E-Packs
comprised of the world`s leading travel brands at one low price,” said Steve
Cossette, Neat Group vice president, marketing and sales.
, a leading online travel company offering consumers the most,
low fares, recently joined NeatTravel`s list of preferred partners. Through
this preferred partnership, Orbitz.com provides dynamic links and banners that connect directly to neatTravel
, enabling Orbitz customers
a convenient way to create customized E-Packs.
Unlike traditional vacation packages with pre-allocated inventory to a
limited number of leisure destinations, E-Packs are created by the traveler in
real-time from a large pool of current inventory in a majority of United
States travel destinations offering an airport, hotel accommodation or car
rental location. Travel throughout the U.S. can be purchased for same day
departures, or up to a year in advance.
“Travel suppliers can offer consumers more attractive wholesale rates with
E-Packs because of the low cost of electronic distribution, real-time
inventory access and the single tax-inclusive price. In turn, consumers
benefit from flexibility, convenience and real savings,” said Bill Brunger,
vice president distribution planning and revenue decision support at
