Spotnana has integrated with Trainline Partner Solutions’ (TPS) latest API to deliver a “next-generation shopping experience” with comprehensive access to European rail carriers.
The integration includes advanced support for split-ticket pricing in the UK, purchases of ancillaries and self-service booking changes and cancellations.
When a traveller searches for a flight, Spotnana automatically runs a rail search in parallel and makes it easy to find an appropriate rail alternative.
Carbon emissions for rail trips are tracked, allowing travel managers to make smart sustainability decisions for their programme.
Travel managers can also see full details on bookings, exchanges, and cancellations for all rail carrier bookings in addition to the location of travellers.
Spotnana customers can apply policy functionality to rail bookings including controls over maximum price, highest travel class allowed, booking windows, and out-of-policy reason codes for bookings.
Travellers can apply discounts from rail cards and loyalty programs, select seats based on real-time seat maps, view accurate amenity details for each leg of a multi-carrier trip, and purchase comfort options and ancillaries, such as in-seat meals and Wi-Fi.
Plus UI displays results based on the number of cabins available for a specific ticket.
Content is now available for Spotnana customers travelling in the UK, Germany (Deutsche Bahn), Switzerland (SBB), Italy (Trenitalia), and Spain (Renfe) with coverage extended to more European routes in the coming months.
