Under its debut agreement, Right Cars will become a part of our network of over 91m car rentals booked in over 37,000 locations, globally. All available through Travelport’s award winning Travel Commerce Platform, enabling Right Cars to have real-time access to the chain’s full car rental inventory.

Mr Little, co-founder and Company Chairman of Right Cars made the following comment

“We are very excited about this new partnership with Travelport, its been a pleasure working with the team at Travelport, and we look forward to working with them for many years. When myself and Mr Taylor started this business we realized it was going to be difficult to develop a global business in an already saturated market place, but it shows that through hard work and determination and the deliverance of a great service to customer, a business can succeed. The direct integration with Travelport not only offers Right Cars with an expansion of sources for reservations but recognizes that our in house developed reservation platform, has the ability to perform at the highest level, currently delivering price and availability information to the Travelport system in less than half a second.

With the connection now live, any OTA, car rental broker, that takes content from the Worldspan system, can contact Right Cars directly to organise commercials. Travel agents can also contact Right Cars directly to receive amazing commissions,  on reservations set to any one of the 110 Right Cars branches, with a further 70 branch openings planned before the end of 2017.”

Right Cars continues to expand, especially in its US operations.
