Travelport and Hertz joined forces in Saudi Arabia recently to bring local travel agents up to speed on the latest car rental trends and opportunities.

More than 30 of the Kingdoms leading travel agencies attended two workshops held in Jeddah and Riyadh to learn about ways to maximise their business through the car content available on Travelports Global Distribution Systems (GDS), as well as the latest offers from Hertz.

Assita Kone, Hospitality Business Development Manager, Middle East, Travelport, said, Non-air content such as car rental is a key part of Travelport offer, and the workshops we organised with Hertz really helped us highlight the business opportunities available to travel agents in Saudi Arabia ... Were thrilled with the response weve received from the local travel trade and are planning to make these events a regular feature in Saudi Arabia and across the region in 2014.

Chris Bradley, GSA Saudi Arabia & Bahrain, Hertz International, added, Travel Agents are our valued partners and it was wonderful to see this terrific response. Initiatives such as these are designed to boost our long-term outbound strategy focusing on key growth channels and will play an instrumental role in our long-term success. We are looking forward to building on this great start and are truly grateful to Travelport.
