August 28, 2014 Technology No Comments Email Email

Travelport, a leading travel commerce platform providing distribution, technology, payment and other solutions for the $7 trillion global travel and tourism industry, has today announced a new e-ticketing service for Deutsche Bahn (DB), one of the world’s leading rail and logistics companies.

Travelport’s dedicated rail booking tool for Deutsche Bahn, DB RailMaster, now issues tickets directly to passengers’ smartphones via a newly designed mobile ticketing solution. ‘Mobile Device Tickets’ will be accepted on Deutsche Bahn trains in Germany. The process makes booking rail travel as convenient as possible for passengers, and saves travel agents time and money.

All Deutsche Bahn national and international agencies that work with Travelport’s DB RailMaster can access the service, which has now gone live, at no additional cost. Agents can reserve passenger-specific seats on Deutsche Bahn trains.

Travelport is the first global distribution system to offer the mobile ticket service for Deutsche Bahn and the solution marks a great technological step forward for the two billion passengers that use the rail system in Germany each year.

Klaus Kreher, Commercial Director at Travelport added, “Travelport is helping to redefine travel commerce and our latest initiative for Deutsche Bahn is a perfect example of this. We are supporting Deutsche Bahn by selling their services, their way and this solution allows them to offer their customers an innovative, convenient ticketing solution in Germany and abroad.”

Felix Bracker, Head of International Sales at Deutsche Bahn added, “We have experienced a long and fruitful partnership with Travelport and are delighted that it now offers this new, innovative solution. We hope that our customers, as well as travel agencies around the world will benefit from the enhanced user experience.”

Travelport and Deutsche Bahn have a 14 year relationship and DB RailMaster is distributed in 23 countries around the world.
