Traveldoo to integrate TheTrainline content into its online business travel booking platform
UK’s rail retailer TheTrainline has formed a partnership with Traveldoo, a European provider of online travel management solutions for businesses, TMCs and distributors. (7/3/2007)
The deal allows Traveldoo to integrate TheTrainline content into its online business travel booking platform via Trainline Connect, the rail retailer’s API. This then enables its corporate customers and agents to access a further enhanced and seamless online rail booking service.
According to an official release, the modern interface technology of Trainline Connect will allow Traveldoo to expand its capability to simplify travel programme management and significantly reduce its clients’ business travel expenditure. It does this by providing management information reporting, a portfolio of fulfilment methods, a choice of payment facilities and clear ticketing options, allowing the cheapest fare to be selected.
Traveldoo customers will now have access to over 293 million fare and journey combinations and will benefit from improved functionality as well as innovative ticketing options such as `Ticket on Departure’ or on-site printing capability. Customers seeking to monitor their carbon footprint will also be able to utilise TheTrainline’s carbon emissions reporting, based on Defra-approved guidelines.
The connection to TheTrainline will be available in September 2007 to large organisations through Traveldoo Enterprise and to small and mid-sized companies through online travel agencies using Traveldoo Portal.
