Leading airfare and hotel price tracking service provider, Yapta, has recently announced that it has entered a partnership with JTB Business Travel Solutions, Inc. (JTB-CWT), a joint venture of JTB and Carlson Wagonlit Travel, and a travel agency giant in Japan. With this partnership, Yapta's airfare and hotel price tracking services will be expanded on to thousands of business customers across Asia and eventually, on a global scale.
Based out of Koto ku, Tokyo, JTB-CWT offers a range of business travel management services like flight and hotel booking, travel information, tour packages and more. The company also offers customized support services that cover the entire trip, from pre-travel preparations to post-travel operations.
“Making Yapta’s price assurance solutions, FareIQ and RoomIQ, available to our corporate clients will open new opportunities for these organizations to save on travel. We are constantly looking for new technologies that bring value to our customers and Yapta is an ideal fit. Whenever it identifies savings, JTB-CWT re-books for less, providing clients with the best possible deals – and delivering significant savings.”
— JTB-CWT President and CEO, Masamitsu Shibuya
As the only company that provides total trip price assurance, Yapta’s IQ Technology has delivered more than $250 million in airfare and hotel savings to its corporate users. Corporate users average a combined savings of $369 per trip by tracking both airfare and hotel prices in tandem.
