MANCHESTER, England, May 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
rentalcars.com, the world's largest car rental booking platform and part of the Priceline Group, has today announced the launch of Rentalcars Connect, giving airlines, online travel agencies and travel websites access to the company's entire car rental inventory and product offering, at over 39,000 locations in 180 countries.
Many of the world's largest travel brands have already partnered with Rentalcars Connect to integrate a car rental booking platform powered by rentalcars.com and driven by the highest conversions, margins and customer loyalty levels in the industry. These partners include: eDreams Odigeo, Bravofly Rumbo Group/lastminute.com, Singapore Airlines, Wizz Air, easyCar and many more. The launch of Rentalcars Connect further strengthens and enhances the company's B2B offering and provides a dedicated solution to any business offering a car rental product to its customers.
Through Rentalcars Connect, businesses can offer their own customers the same great products and services as rentalcars.com, all under their own brand, using a multitude of technology solutions. This includes global availability of cars, as well as booking solutions in over 40 languages - and, vitally, the same industry-leading phone and email support that has made rentalcars.com the world's largest car rental booking platform.
Peter Rooney, Marketing Director of rentalcars.com, commented: "We've been providing car rental booking solutions for travel brands for over 10 years, and now have over 50 airline partners. By creating a solution in Rentalcars Connect, our B2B team can provide dedicated partner support and continue working on innovative ways to provide the best solutions for our partners - while the rentalcars.com team can focus on sourcing the best product, optimising pricing and providing the best service in the industry to support our partners' customers."
Ady Guthrie, Director of Rentalcars Connect, added: "Equally important, this move allows us increased flexibility. Many companies employ our solution but manage their own customers directly, while others prefer to leave everything to us. Whatever level of support our partners need, our integration solutions can deliver, directly leading to higher earnings, increased conversion rates and more ancillary revenue."
