Travelport and Mobacar Announce Global Agreement


Travelport has signed a new global deal with Mobacar, a ground transportation distribution platform that offers content from global and regional transport providers, so 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 Co Kerry and is run by a team of car rental product experts.

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 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.”

Niklas Andreen, Senior Vice President, Hotel, Car and Advertising, Travelport, said: “This strategic relationship with Mobacar is key in ensuring that we continue to build on our extensive content offering for customers. We already offer unrivalled hotel content, with over 650,000 hotel properties available, and now through Mobacar, we will be able to offer additional car options across the world. Car rental is an important growth area for us, as well as our travel agency customers, so we are continuing to put real focus behind it. We encourage any travel agency wanting to earn new revenues by growing their hotel and car attachment rates to come and talk to us about how we can help them achieve their goals.”
