Travelocity offers Amtrak packages to corporate travelers

Posted on February 1, 2004

Travelocity Business, the corporate travel wing of www.travelocity.com, has become the first online travel agency to provide business travelers the option of booking Amtrak rail trips online, along with other conventional services. Travelocity, a popular Website for travelers who want to customize and book their tickets online, added rail packages to its comprehensive menu of air, car and lodging options. Essentially, business travelers at companies that use Travelocity Business will now have access to their company’s own private site, where they can view and select the most convenient travel options for any given business trip. “Corporate travelers are looking for greater control of their travel experience, starting with their reservations,” said Ellen Keszler, president of Travelocity Business. “Adding rail bookings to all of our other options online gives travelers one more way to enhance their travel.” Rail options are particularly valuable to companies with travelers in the Northeast and other areas where commuter rail presents a cost-effective alternative to flying.
