Amadeus has developed a new platform enabling car providers to exchange 100% of their messages using Open Travel Alliance XML technology, making data exchange far easier than it ever was before.

 Amadeus Cars was already distributing content from its car rental partners to offline and online travel agencies using XML. Now, Amadeus can additionally exchange OTA XML messages with car rental companies, connecting them to their customers across the complete distribution chain using XML protocol.

This platform has the following additional benefits:

100% seamless content: car providers can exchange all business information using XML messaging, improving data quality, accuracy and timeliness.

 Speed to market: Amadeus enhancements can be adopted faster by car providers thanks to the same interoperability language between Amadeus and car companies.

Cost savings: XML messaging is easier to program and maintain as well as having widespread use amongst suppliers and distributors.

Charles A. Coniglio, VP e-Commerce & Global Distribution, Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group (DTAG), Inc. said, “through Amadeus’s XML platform, we are now able to transmit all our content - rates and availability, plus location list and policy information – through one interface. In addition, as Amadeus rolls-out new functionalities, we can implement them quickly and easily thanks to the same XML messaging exchange between Amadeus and ourselves. XML is the language of the future and DTAG are delighted to be a part of it.”
