  • With this new addition, the Octopus Tech platform becomes the only tool on the market to offer more than 3 million hotels, 27 car rental companies, 650 airlines, transfer services in more than 160 countries and taxi and VTC services in more than 90 countries, in a single tool.


Madrid, 7 September 2021. – The health crisis, advances in technology and the value of digitalisation have significantly changed the preferences and consumer habits of the business traveller. In the wake of the pandemic, business travellers have increased their demands for personal security throughout their journey.

For this reason, and due to the increase in individual transfer services, the Travel Management Company Consultia Travel, a Spanish company specialising in the integrated management of business trips and MICE, decided a few months ago to launch the Transfer Service that allows its clients to connect in private transport in more than 160 countries.

Now, Consultia Business Travel connects in its software platform the offer of taxis and VTCs such as Uber and Cabify in more than 90 countries. “With this new addition, we have managed to convert our Octopus Tech platform, which digitalises all business travel management processes in a single tool, into the only tool on the market that offers more than 3 million connected hotels, 27 car rental companies, 650 airline companies through 4 global GDS, connection with transfers in more than 160 countries and, from today, the supply of taxis and VTC in more than 90 countries”, says Carlos Martínez, CEO of Consultia Travel.


How does it work?

From the platform developed by the company, Octopus Tech© Selfbooking tool, the client can make online bookings for taxis and VTC, such as Cabify or Uber, to travel on all types of journeys, without having to make any payment or request any proof of payment during the journey, as everything is stored in each client’s profile and a single invoice will be issued.

This fast, agile and intuitive system shows the most economical, advantageous and sustainable options according to the criteria previously indicated by the client, automatically, thus generating the travel documentation in the “travel agenda” module, without waiting and without the danger of losing confirmations or documents.

In addition, bookings can also be made through the Concierge Service system, in which the travel manager specialised in business trips makes the booking following the user’s preferences and advising and optimising times during the trip.

“The main objective of Consultia Travel is that its business clients have the best comprehensive solution for their business trips, advising and offering tools that optimise time and costs. We continue to work and evolve, expanding our services and developing the most innovative technology for business trips, to continue to have the confidence of our customers for the comprehensive management of their business trips”, adds Carlos Martínez.
