GroundLink Partners with Omni Hotels & Resorts to Offer Guests Ground Transportation
New York, NY (PRWEB) August 23, 2011
GroundLink, the world's most reliable ground transportation company, has recently partnered with Omni Hotels & Resorts to provide its customers with a convenient way to get to and from their properties. The luxury brand has 50 luxury hotels and resorts across North America, all of which are now accessible through GroundLink's extensive network.
Charles Fraas, CEO of GroundLink said, "Omni guests now have a fast and easy way to book transportation to or from their properties without the hassle of renting a car or making other arrangements. We can provide their guests with a variety of vehicles from SUVs to limousines at any of their properties. Our industry-leading technology delivers superior on-time performance and makes us easier to work with for our partners and customers."
"GroundLink's fleet of luxury vehicles aligns with the experience we strive to provide our customers everyday, said Kerry Kennedy, Vice President of E-Commerce for Omni Hotels & Resorts. We are pleased with the added convenience for our guests."
GroundLink is committed to helping the airline, cruise line and hotel industries take advantage of the huge opportunities available to them by providing their customers ground transportation services. Fraas explains: "Untapped ancillary revenue streams are difficult to find in the travel industry, but we believe ground transportation is a huge unrealized opportunity, which is why we have built a network of over 45,000 providers in over 15,000 cities, servicing over 5,000 airports. By consolidating this highly fragmented industry, our partners finally have a high-quality, consistent experience they can offer to their customers."
Groundlink uses technology to drive better ground travel for corporate road warriors around the world. The company provides black car sedans anytime, anywhere – in 170 countries and every city in the United States. GroundLink's software platform – available via API – provides travelers, web partners, GDSs, travel agents and other travel providers with access to 45,000+ global ground travel vendors. Current partners include JetBlue, Continental, Expedia, Kayak, and Omni Hotels. GroundLink's in-car GPS technology provides real-time inventory availability, enables dynamic pricing, and drives the highest on-time arrivals in the industry. Customers can book their ride and track their car via iPhone and Android apps. Groundlink: this is technology driving better ground travel.
