Yapta rolls out price tracking to all international markets
Airfare and hotel price tracking service Yapta has expanded its corporate travel price tracking tech to all international markets.
It follows positive results during early adopter implementation in select markets including Canada, France, India, Spain and the UK.
"Based on the significant bottom-line savings our customers have achieved in the US, support for international markets has been at the top of their wish list," said Valerie Layman, chief product officer at Yapta.
"Our customers have signed up to achieve significant cost savings in 2017, and expanding their FareIQ and RoomIQ programs internationally will help them achieve their goals this year with minimal additional effort."
The service is used by more than 1,200 customers in the US and based on preliminary international results, it is producing average combined savings of $317 per trip.
Yapta provides corporate travel managers with access to a web-based dashboard to monitor airfare and hotel price movements round the clock.
Yapta says its airfare price tracking solution FareIQ identifies average savings of $260 per ticket while hotel booking program RoomIQ brings average savings of $109 per booking.
"Offering our solutions internationally was one of the easiest decisions we made. Functionally, it's a checkbox to select the countries our customers want to activate and by working with our global TMC partners, we can bring our award-winning technology to offshore markets with the speed and efficiency that our customers have come to expect," said James Filsinger, president and CEO of Yapta.
Since launching in 2007 Yapta says it has delivered more than $650 million in combined savings via alerts to businesses and consumers.
