Travelport Drive Me Trials Commissionable Airport Car Transfers

Travelport is trialling a new service that will allow travel agents to book chauffeur-driven car transfers via the GDS. Targeting selected Galileo-connected travel agents in Asia, Travelport Drive Me works with two car rental companies to provide access to 21 airports in China (12), India (7), the Philippines and Singapore. It is anticipated that on completion of a successful trial, Travelport will aim to make this service available to Galileo-connected travel agents worldwide.

Until now, booking a car transfer in Asian countries has been a tedious and complex manual process for agents, who often rely on third-party suppliers and hotels. By booking with Travelport via the GDS, agents are able to automate the process and bookings are seamlessly integrated back into the passenger name record (PNR). All bookings through Travelport Drive Me are also commissionable.

“There is a huge demand for chauffeur-driven car transfers in Asia, particularly in cities where there are language and security issues or where public transport is not widely available,” said Joe Lim, Regional Director Car & Hospitality APAC, Travelport. “Travelport Drive Me provides greater peace of mind to travellers and delivers real value to corporate and leisure customers travelling through China, India and beyond.”
