TripCase from Sabre has announced its integration with the new Uber API in its mobile travel management application. Users of TripCase can now seamlessly request an Uber ride and receive a special discount pricing through the TripCase app. Based on advanced geo-location features, the TripCase app will offer travelers an Uber ride at the point in their trip when car services are needed most. This integration will save time and hassle by pre-populating the pick-up and drop-off locations whenever possible.
John Samuel, senior vice president of Sabre Traveler Solutions, commented: “TripCase and Uber are perfect partners, both dedicated to providing travellers with extraordinary experiences.”
Samuel continued: “Technology has changed travellers’ expectations, and Uber has revolutionized the way people get a ride. This integration means TripCase users will not have to worry about finding a ride, having cash or scrambling for an address.”
In its research, TripCase found that convenience is the top consideration for 76% of travellers when choosing a mode of ground transportation. Across traveller types, convenience remains the most important factor with 78% of business travellers and 73% of leisure travellers choosing transportation based on convenience. Followed by convenience, business travellers want the ability to pay with credit card (53%), while leisure travellers consider cost (57%) in choosing a mode of transportation.
