Travelers can reserve GroundLink transportation via mobile, web or phone, and reminders to do so will appear within their itineraries on TripIt.com and through TripIt's mobile apps. GroundLink offers mobile apps to track the car, status notifications via text message, and the ability to dial the driver directly.

"GroundLink is excited to work with TripIt to drive increased value for travelers," said Ken Kantor, Chief Marketing Officer at GroundLink. "We provide superior reliability, worldwide coverage, and competitive prices; but we believe our mobile and web technology is the real differentiator."

"TripIt users will have access to exclusive GroundLink content that makes reserving ground transportation seamless," said Barry Padgett, Executive Vice President of TripIt and Traveler Services for Concur. "Together, we're bringing delightful experiences to travelers, and we're honored to have GroundLink join us in our mission to deliver 'The Perfect Trip.' "

While all travelers can earn airline miles for each GroundLink ride; through the partnership, TripIt users will be able to earn double the airline miles. Additional offers and promotions will be made available to TripIt users through the partnership, including an extended trial of TripIt Pro.
