Travelport Hotelzon, the hotel distribution technology provider for the B2B travel industry, today announced its partnership with Cabforce, a Finnish taxi booking solutions provider, and part of CarTrawler.

The new partnership enables customers of hotelzon.com, a hotel booking solution designed and built for business travellers, to pre-book airport transfers once they have completed their hotel reservations.

Travelport Hotelzon customers worldwide can now search hundreds of provider options via the Cabforce platform. Travellers can pre-book flat-rate taxis and transfer services available at airports and other points of interest such as railway and bus stations.

Mathias Andersson, chief operating officer at Travelport Hotelzon, commented: “We are delighted to announce the co-operation between Travelport Hotelzon and Cabforce as it forms part of our product strategy to introduce features that meet the unmet needs of the travel industry.

Typically, booking airport transfers is time-consuming and often goes unplanned yet with the integration of Cabforce, our corporate customers can plan ahead and seamlessly book hotels and airport transfers in one go, to reach their destination both quickly and conveniently”.

Andreas Hansson, chief executive officer at Cabforce, added: “Cabforce offers business travelers a simple and efficient way to book taxis as part of their Travelport Hotelzon experience.

The ability to pre-book ground transportation services at the same time as making a hotel reservation, with the best aggregated prices across a range of product categories, means that customers enjoy smooth, hassle-free journeys”.
