“This is an exciting partnership with HolidayPhone and a money-saving travel solution offer that our customers can pass along to their travelers." - Allison Solomon, Head of Advertisin Strategy and Operations at Travelport
Stockholm (PRWEB) March 27, 2013
HolidayPhone announced today that they have entered into a cooperation agreement with Travelport in offering international travelers roaming free mobile Internet, voice and text services. These services can save travelers hundreds or even thousands of dollars in mobile call charges while traveling abroad.
As part of this agreement, HolidayPhone will be using the Travelport Viewtrip itinerary solution to promote roaming free mobile Internet, voice and text services for international business and vacation travelers.
“This is an exciting partnership with HolidayPhone and a money-saving travel solution offer that our customers can pass along to their travelers. We are keenly focused on building out offers and opportunities on our ViewTrip itinerary product, and HolidayPhone’s services are a great compliment to that,” says Allison Solomon, Head of Advertising Strategy and Operations at Travelport.
“We are happy to have such a reliable partner that provides us with this great opportunity to develop our business.” says Joacim Boivie, CEO for HolidayPhone. “It’s a fact that most travelers today bring their mobile devices to make calls and use their mobile Internet access when abroad. However using mobile Internet when visiting another country can be very expensive because of mobile operator pricing on international roaming. HolidayPhone has solved this problem by creating a user friendly and cost efficient product with services for international travelers and tourists. We are very excited to be able to offer this solution to a global market through our partnership with Travelport.”
