   Hotel Shopping Path First Step in Offering Corporate Marketplace
  the Familiarity of Consumer Shopping with Powerful Capabilities for
                    Managing Corporate Travel Costs

The corporate travel marketplace continues to rapidly adopt online
technology because of its powerful tools that help companies
significantly reduce costs. Today, GetThere announces an enhanced
hotel shopping path, marking the first milestone in a broad-reaching
technology sharing initiative between GetThere and Travelocity.

This announcement makes GetThere the first traditional online
corporate booking technology to begin offering its customers powerful
corporate travel technology combined with the look and feel of a
popular consumer shopping experience.

As the world’s leading online corporate travel reservation
technology, GetThere offers the most proven, comprehensive solution
for helping corporations globally manage their travel online. In its
collaboration with Travelocity, GetThere continues delivering
enhancements to the online shopping experience for its corporate
customers. These changes offer significant incentive to business
travelers who frequently also book leisure travel online and
appreciate the familiar look and feel of this experience.

“We already offer companies the leading technology for controlling
travel costs, and we are heavily focused on delivering advancements
that make the online corporate booking system the ultimate tool for
travelers,” said Bev Heinritz, general manager of GetThere. “Our
recent developments such as online voids, refunds and ticket exchange
let travelers handle new kinds of bookings, and the enhanced look and
feel available through our relationship with Travelocity gives
travelers a shopping experience that most corporate tools will have a
hard time matching.”

GetThere’s new hotel shopping path features an enhanced look and
feel that offers more photographs and information in a very
consumer-friendly approach. Some specific additions include:

    --  New hotel information - on-screen photographs and link to
        additional photos, more hotel address information, more
        informative hotel description, amenity icons

    --  Easier hotel sorting options by hotel name, distance,
        company-preferred, cost

    --  Enhancements for booking company-preferred property, such as
        ability to make special requests during booking, that are then
        sent to hotel

While GetThere customers will be the beneficiaries of the
usability enhancements garnered from Travelocity, ultimately, the
collaboration between GetThere, Travelocity Business(SM) and
Travelocity will benefit each brand by delivering the current
capabilities of each as well as future developments to all customer
