Orbitz for Business, the corporate travel group of Orbitz Worldwide, has launched a new mobile solution that allows business travellers to search and book flights, hotels and car rentals directly from their smartphone. The mobile website at m.orbitzforbusiness.net, is suitable for any iPhone, BlackBerry and Android users.
“Business travelers increasingly want to use mobile devices to search and book trips that adhere to their companies’ travel policies – we do not believe a comprehensive, end-to-end solution has been available until today,” said Frank Petito, President of Orbitz for Business. “The Orbitz for Business mobile solution enables travelers to plan and purchase air, hotel and car travel through a streamlined, intuitive interface optimized for mobile devices. Equally important, the solution was built to support the policy, control and compliance requirements of corporate travel managers and their programmes.”
The new Orbitz for Business allows travellers to book a range of travel products and services, including flights, hotels and car rental options, sorted and filtered by price, location or schedule. A trip tracking and itinerary management tool allows all reservations and trip details to be accessed through the ‘My Trips’ section, including the ability to cancel existing reservations and share itineraries. Flight status and traveller updates offer users the opportunity to check flight status on major worldwide airlines.
Additionally, the mobile website applies all existing corporate travel policies, controls and compliance guidelines to new reservations.
