Under a new agreement The Hertz Corporation will provide KDS customers in North America, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa with a direct link to Hertz’ Central Reservation System. “The business travel world has undergone rapid change over the past few years and with it has come a new type of traveler and one who wants to take more control over their own travel booking, one who is internet savvy and who is looking for the best interactivity in the marketplace,” commented Brian Kennedy, Executive Vice President, Marketing and Sales for Hertz. “Hertz has been working with its technology partners to ensure it is at the forefront of on-line booking innovation and this continuing partnership with KDS will help us to ensure we maintain a leading position.”
With the KDS Corporate solution, corporations can define and manage their travel policy while having easy access to public and negotiated fares of major travel providers. With KDS solutions, corporate business travelers can book their Hertz cars online, as well as their flights or train tickets and hotel room.
“One of KDS’s key strategic goals is to provide direct links to major travel industry suppliers. Thus offering corporations the maximum freedom in choice of suppliers and distribution channels they wish to use when booking business travel online. We are pleased that Hertz, who was our first car rental partner to sign an agreement with us, has renewed and extended its partnership with KDS,” states Stéphane Donders, Senior VP at KDS.
