Car Source Complete Pricing reduces the possibility of rate discrepancy and ensures greater customer satisfaction.

Worldspan‘s highest level of connectivity for car rental bookings, Worldspan Car Source enables travel agents to access quickly real-time rates and availability from the car rental company’s internal reservation system. Car Source Complete Pricing integrates additional data - required fees, surcharges and taxes - into the availability display, providing a more complete cost picture for agents and consumers.


“Car Source Complete Pricing offers our customers instant, real-time access to all rate data affecting the total cost to their client, without having to call the car rental company,” commented Graham Nichols

, Worldspan vice president EMEA and general manager. “The result is greater efficiency for the agency and the supplier, and no unexpected charges for the consumer.

“Providing complete pricing details to agents and consumers is crucial not only to secure the booking but also for overall customer satisfaction,” Nichols continued, “and Car Source Complete Pricing delivers all the relevant information to accomplish just that.”

The world’s biggest car rental companies have chosen to take advantage of Car Source Complete Pricing including Ace Rent-A-Car, Advantage Rent-A-Car, Avis Rent A Car System,, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Hertz Rent A Car, Payless Car Rental System, and Thrifty Car Rental.  Additional participants will be announced in the near future.
