GDS claims partnership 'takes us to the next level when it comes to providing a true end-to-end experience for business travellers'
Amadeus and Karhoo collaborate to offer ride hailing to Cytric business travel app users
Amadeus has integrated Karhoo into its Cytric Travel & Expense mobile app to bring ride-hailing to its business travel users.
The partnership ensures that Cytric users can hail pre-booked or in-demand rides in more that 1,000 cities globally with full transparency of what the fare will be.
Amadeus says it is increasing the number of cities, destinations and ground transportation options available directly on the Cytric app to meet demand.
Business travellers compare prices as well as category of vehicles and estimated wait time to book whichever ride best suits their needs.
Amadeus said this will help corporate clients reduce costs as well as service their travelers better during their trip.
A future development will also link the receipts generated automatically for the clients who use the Cytric expense solution.
Vasken Tokatlian, vice president partnerships and alliances for Amadeus Cytric solutions, said:
“We’re always looking for ways to make Cytric Travel & Expense more user friendly for our travllers. We want them to have everything they need at their fingertips.
“This partnership with Karhoo really takes us to the next level when it comes to providing a true end-to-end experience for business travellers.”
Fedra Ribeiro, chief executive of Karhoo, added: “Few companies have the global reach and network of travelers and travel companies that Amadeus has.
“We are therefore very pleased to be working with Cytric Travel & Expense and proud to help Cytric users find more mobility options, wherever they travel.”
