Travel technology booking technology specialist Vibe has integrated ground transportation to its platform through a partnership with CMAC Group.
The tie-up will see Vibe clients given access to on-demand or planned taxi, executive car, minibus and coach services. The service is available to Vibe’s clients via an API upon request.

The service is supplemented by a 24-hour support hotline, enabling Vibe’s clients to “enhance the travel experience, add value to their customer proposition and unlock new revenue opportunities”, the firm said.
Matthew Chapman, chief technical officer and Co-founder of Vibe, said: “At a time when many travellers are still concerned about using public transport and travel intermediaries are looking to find new products to cross-sell to increase revenues, selling ground transportation as part of travel packages is proving more popular than ever.
“But finding a reliable provider who can manage everything end-to-end, around the globe, is not easy. CMAC goes above and beyond many suppliers, offering a manned support line alongside access to transport solutions which made them the partner of choice for us.”
Peter Slater, chief executive of CMAC Group, added: “Combining the individual strengths of Vibe and CMAC will undoubtedly provide significant benefits to clients and their customers.
“Vibe’s strong platform and CMAC’s unrivalled supply chain makes this a one-stop shop for all ground transportation needs, improving efficiency and ensuring that users have access to a reliable managed transport experience whenever they need it.”
