3 ways to add value to every car booking

For harried vacation or business travelers, renting a car can be a daunting process. Especially on vacation, many travelers don’t want to be bothered by “extras” they’d pshutterstock_683619436refer to leave at home, like car seats for the kids or a GPS for Dad (so he doesn’t rack up roaming charges while navigating via mobile). And then there’s Mom, who’d rather confirm her reservation on her cell than lug around paper printouts.

Because we know traveling can be stressful, Amadeus is committed to helping you provide the best car rental experience for your travelers, so their journeys are as user-friendly and stress-free as possible. Here are three ways you can make a difference:

  1. Offer more content

Amadeus Cars offers 37 car rental company options – including global, regional and local brands – that feature a multitude of rates including retail, contracted or net rates. Amadeus also offers value-added services that can help your travelers dodge common derailers:

  • Help, I’m lost! Book and confirm add-ons like satellite navigation, child seats, winter tires and other services directly in Amadeus Cars.
  • Oops, an accident … Most car providers in Amadeus offer additional insurance policies that waive costs related to vehicle theft or damage.
  • Meet me on Main Street. If travelers request a specific point of interest or address where they would like their car delivered, it’s no problem with Amadeus Cars.
  1. Deliver greater convenience

You can also help travelers save time by offering an Amadeus Cars e-voucher, an electronic proof of payment / reservation document they show the attendant when picking up their vehicle. The reservation can be pulled up directly on the traveler’s mobile phone for greater convenience and peace of mind – no need to carry cumbersome paperwork. (Note: most but not all Amadeus car providers offer this service.)

If your travelers are headed to Europe, find the best rental rates by city or country using AutoEurope, an aggregator for car rental locations. Bookable via Amadeus Cars Web Services, the tool lets you shop, book, modify, and cancel the reservation the same way you would any other car supplier’s content. Benefits include excellent commissions, preferred pricing and 24/7 service.
