CarTrawler has strengthened its proposition as a technology platform for the wider travel sector, by sealing a deal to partner with hostel-booking platform Hostelworld.
This deal will enable Hostelworld customers to access car hire and ground transport.
The Dublin-based firm’s technology platform is already used by 100 airlines and 2,000 travel retailers around the world.
CarTrawler said its ability to deliver both rental car and other forms of ground transportation services gave it the edge over competitors.
Aileen McCormack, chief commercial officer at CarTrawler, said: “CarTrawler is the best-converting online car rental platform and we’re delighted that Hostelworld is taking full advantage of our market-leading ability to maximise revenues.
“CarTrawler’s multimodal car rental and ground transport solutions, combined with the global accommodation offering of Hostelworld, will create a one-stop-shop for customers internationally.”
Marek Mossakowski, global head of brand at Hostelworld, added: “We are excited to work with CarTrawler to help our customers and partners with their car rental and ground transportation needs.
“We connect young travellers with hostels in more than 170 countries, making our collaboration with CarTrawler a very natural step for us as we continuously endeavour to turbo-charge our customers and partners travel experience, whilst also making it a seamless one.”
