Amadeus has launched the latest update of its global corporate travel solution - Amadeus eTravel Management - unveiling a range of new features for car rentals.

New features include:

Use of charge cards: Users will be able to guarantee and pay for rentals with the provider’s charge card, making the collection and billing processes more simple and efficient, whilst also allowing corporations to handle more complex deals.

Improved communication with the car rental office: Travellers will be able to take advantage of a ‘free text’ comment field when booking, helping to ensure that their exact travel needs are met.

Special equipment booking: Customers will now have an extensive choice of special equipment relevant to business travel needs when booking rentals, from new services such as GPS, to more traditional items like snow tyres.

Fabrice Quinquenel, Vice President Sales, Hertz Europe said, “Travellers in today’s market are more knowledgeable and expect technology solutions that offer far more flexibility, at a better rate. Thanks to Amadeus’ commitment to deliver at a global scale, these new functions allow us to not only give our worldwide customers an improved travel experience, but also to deliver substantial cost savings through real-time booking prices and more efficient billing.”

Frank Palapies, Head of Global Commercial Operations of Amadeus added, “Car suppliers tell us that Amadeus’ focus on facilitating global corporate travel programmes has been invaluable in improving relationships with their business customers. Now thanks to these new features, Amadeus offers a more sophisticated automated service through Amadeus eTravel Management that not only helps to meet travellers’ needs but also empowers corporations to enforce their car rental company policy.”
