Skyscanner to power Microsoft’s car rental search in 49 markets

Travel search engine Skyscanner is to power Microsoft Travel’s newly launched car rental search across 49 global markets.

The introduction of MSN’s car rental tool represents a further extension of the partnership between Skyscanner and Microsoft.

The metasearch site began powering flight search for MSN Travel across 31 global markets in 2015, adding a further 18 this year.

Microsoft’s car rental data is powered by independent B2B unit Skyscanner for Business, which started a car rental white label offering earlier this year.

Skyscanner now powers car rental search for a growing number of businesses across the travel industry, including Brazilian metasearch site Mundi.

The white label features visibility on free cancellations, mileage limits, as well as comparison on thousands of models of car including hybrid and electric vehicles.

Commercial director, Hugh Aitken, said: “We are delighted to have extended our partnership with Microsoft to power their new car rental product.

“Skyscanner’s car rental data is among the strongest and most comprehensive in the industry, including 30,000 pick-up locations across 190 countries worldwide. We are proud to be working with MSN to offer their users access to our world-class search technology.”
