Amadeus Cars First in Industry to Go 100 Percent Paperless

Amadeus, a provider of technology to the travel and tourism industry, becomes the first in the car rental industry to achieve 100 percent e-Voucher for its car rental reservations worldwide as of Jan. 1, 2009.

Back in October 1996, Amadeus was the first and only travel distribution company to offer a global paper voucher solution for car rentals. Ten years later, in December 2006, Amadeus pioneered the launch of the e-Voucher and following the path initiated by the airline industry, Amadeus takes the next step forward and moves to greener, more efficient processes for travel agencies with the full withdrawal of the traditional paper vouchers.

Amadeus Cars e-Voucher is an electronic means of payment for car rentals. The e-Voucher saves car rental companies money as they no longer need to print and distribute pre-printed forms to travel agents. In addition, customers no longer need to show any paperwork as proof of reservation and/or payment when attending at the car rental counter.

With Amadeus Cars e-Vouchers, some 99,000 travel agencies and 34,000 airline sales offices using the Amadeus system worldwide can benefit from a faster, more efficient and reliable booking process for car rental, bringing savings in terms of time and money. Amadeus Cars e-Voucher also permits a higher level of flexibility for travel agencies to accommodate last minute and same day bookings.
