Travelport inks deal with e-Travel Technologies

Travelport has signed a new agreement with e-Travel Technologies, provider of duty of care solutions.

The e-Travel Technologies product portfolio addresses liability concerns of travel professionals and travelers, and satisfies corporations’ duty of care responsibilities. It includes: travel alerts, travel advisories, and travel tracker databases and is available globally to Travelport-connected travel agents.

Scott Hyden, managing director, Sales, Americas, Travelport, said, “We are pleased to add e-Travel Technologies and their travel risk management services to our roster of duty of care solutions for the corporate travel market.

e-Travel Technologies solutions are integrated to Travelport point-of-sale platforms via The Travelport Developer Network, a program specifically designed for independent software developers seeking to integrate their solutions with Travelport.” Added, Hyden, “Travelport’s open platform and the Travelport Developer Network enable flexible access to a wide range of content and services not typically available in this distribution channel.

Offering the widest range of unrivalled travel content – whether it’s duty of care solutions such as e-Travel’s portfolio, independent hotels or low-cost carriers that don’t play in the GDS channel – is key to serving the corporate market.” Don Churchill, president, e-Travel Technologies Inc., said, “With the rapidly increasing demand for duty of care services, we are confident that our combined products will make a significant contribution to Travelport‘s value proposition in the corporate travel marketplace.”
