Orbitz for Business and Limos.com are now giving road warriors the ability to book black cars and limousines through the online travel agency's corporate booking tool.
The deal adds black cars and limousines from some 2,000 town car and limousine vendors to the Orbitz for Business ground transportation mix, giving corporate travelers an alternative to car rental firms, the companies say.
The service is available in some 370 destinations in 62 countries, the companies state.
Corporations have access to negotiated discounts of up to 40% on the black cars and limousines and can take advantage of integrated reporting and policy controls, according to the companies.
This is not the first time that Orbitz for Business has offered black cars and limousines.
In 2005, for example, Orbitz for Business struck a similar deal with GT3 (Ground Travel Transportation Team).
T.J. Clark, CEO of Limos.com, claims its negotiated rates and policy controls make town cars and limousines a cost-effective alternative for corporations.
However, whether they beat negotiated rates from rental car companies on a consistent basis is an open question.
Limos.com says Orbitz for Business customers get access to "all-inclusive pricing" at the time of booking.
The corporate travel market is a key potential growth area for San Francisco-based Limos.com, which launched its own Limos.com for Business nearly a year ago.
