Travelport has signed a new global deal with Mobacar, a ground transportation distribution platform which offers content from both global and regional transport providers.
This means that Travelport-connected travel agents will have access to additional car rental options.
Mobacar has developed an intelligent global distribution platform for all forms of ground transportation - car hire, transfers, motorhomes, motorcycles and helicopters.
Mobacar connects online travel companies and their customers, such as airlines and online travel agents, to a global network of transportation options in real time.
Mobacar is based in Kerry, Ireland, and is run by a team of car rental product experts.
This news means that Travelport’s agency customers will have access to more choice of car content as well as the ability to search and book content from smaller regional car rental companies for the very first time.
Additionally, this new deal means that travel agencies will also be able to access relevant car rental travel policies and multilingual consumer-friendly terms and conditions.
Mike Webster, chief executive, Mobacar, said: “We are delighted to be entering into this new relationship with Travelport.
“Combining Travelport’s cutting edge technology with Mobacar’s Global Supply footprint will help us with our continued global expansion.
“Additionally, this relationship with Travelport will enable us to reach new travel agency customers and offer them more choice and flexibility of car rental content.”
