Travelport, a global travel technology company, recently signed a multi-year agreement with Europe’s leading online rail and coach ticket provider Trainline.
As part of the strategic agreement, Trainline’s vast range of aggregated content from major rail operators in Europe will be integrated into Travelport+ through Travelport’s desktop user interface Smartpoint, and next-generation API’s.
“Our Travelport+ capability will rapidly integrate Trainline’s technology platform leading to improved retailing capabilities for our global network of travel agents and the most compelling range of European rail content for travelers today,” said Jason Clarke, chief commercial officer of Travel Partners at Travelport.
The new collaboration comes as multinational rail options become an increasingly popular mode of transport across Europe for both leisure and business travelers. As demand for environmentally efficient modes of travel grows, global agents connected to Travelport’s next-generation platform, Travelport+, will now be able to manage and book cross-European rail offers as seamlessly as they do with airline and hotel content.
Supported by Travelport+, Trainline will strengthen its commitment to making every journey greener by helping its travelers make smarter choices through simplified and enhanced content distribution.
“We are pleased to reach this monumental milestone with Travelport. Making our rail content accessible across the Travelport platform will further enhance our global reach and enable our unique offering to be searched and booked in conjunction with relevant air and hotel content, encouraging greener journeys,” Trainline Partner Solutions President Champa Magesh said.
