Travel commerce platform Travelport has partnered with near-airport parking provider the Parking Spot to make airport parking spaces available to book through Travelport Smartpoint.
Agents using Smartpoint can install the Parking Spot plug-in – built by technology consultancy DataArt – to select and reserve airport parking during the booking process.
Ed Orkand, VP of field sales for the Parking Spot, said: “By partnering with Travelport, the Parking Spot is able to reach a larger audience of travel managers and agents and their customers. We are excited about the opportunity to better serve travel agents by helping them create a seamless travel experience for their customers at the point of booking.”
Lynn Smith, director of strategic business development for Travelport, added: “Travel agents want quick, easy access to the best travel content available. By partnering with the Parking Spot, agents using Travelport Smartpoint now have a competitive advantage in offering their clients parking from the nation’s leading near-airport parking provider as part of a fully integrated trip solution.”
