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

on facilitating global corporate travel programmes has been invaluable
in improving relationships with their business customers. Now thanks to
