GetThere Connect expands corporate options

GetThere has launched GetThere Connect, providing corporate travelers the ability to shop and book additional hotel, rail and airline content within their corporate travel programs.

Applying policy and providing visibility into a larger percentage of their companies’ travel purchases is a key objective of many corporate travel managers. The solution will connect corporations to leading regional suppliers around the globe, offering travelers more choices.

This enables GetThere to supplement the broad based of travel content available through the Sabre travel marketplace and other GDSs to which GetThere connects, allowing travel buyers to easily shop and book travel from an even greater selection of travel suppliers worldwide.

“GetThere Connect allows our customers to access broader content and competitive rates on a regional basis” explains Paul Wiley, chief product and strategy officer at GetThere.  “Over time, travel managers will see reduced cost and less program leakage because it enables an even larger percentage of purchases to be made within the program, meaning greater policy compliance, increased usage of negotiated rates, and better visibility into total program spend.”
