OMAHA, (Neb.)  July 9, 2019 – Travel and Transport and TRIPBAM have today partnered to provide global hotel re-shopping and analytics for business travel programs amid both companies’ ambitious international growth plans.

The agreement encompasses Travel and Transport’s wholly-owned locations in the U.S., U.K., France, Germany and Switzerland.

Dallas-based TRIPBAM is a growing hotel shopping, benchmarking and analytics service, using technology that re-shops existing hotel bookings to find cheaper rates or alternatives, providing an average saving of more than $100 per booking. Savings can be found on the original property booked, or by including nearby properties or “clusters.” TRIPBAM now has more than two dozen global TMC agreements.                                                            

“As Travel and Transport grows internationally, multi-country partnerships like this increase the solutions made available to global travel buyers to keep costs down,” said Michael Kubasik, executive vice president and CIO at Travel and Transport. “Like us, TRIPBAM is constantly looking to innovate and improve product and service offerings to meet and exceed client expectations, making this agreement a natural fit and one that strengthens our position as a global alternative for travel buyers.”

“We are thrilled to partner with a rapidly growing international player in the business travel market,” said Steve Reynolds, CEO of TRIPBAM. “Both companies share a focus on providing best-in-class products and services across multiple markets to business travellers and their companies. We look forward to continuing to expand and provide innovative offerings together to the corporate travel industry in the future.”
