GetThere Third Quarter 3.1 Million Booking Record Shows Continued Shift to Online Bookings in Corporations

SOUTHLAKE, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nov. 9, 2004–GetThere(R) today
announced that it set a new booking record in the third quarter with
more than 3.1 million bookings, confirming a rapid shift toward online
booking by corporations.

GetThere, the world’s leading provider of online corporate travel
technology, continued to strengthen its customer base, with renewals
and new customer signings totaling approximately $700 million in
annual air travel. Customer agreements included Bank of America, Black
and Veatch, and Mellon Financial. GetThere signed up several top
European corporations in the quarter, and its European booking volume
in the third quarter grew 144 percent over the quarter last year.

GetThere online technology is used by more than 3,000 companies
worldwide, including half of the Fortune 200. The continued growth in
booking maps closely to the results of a GetThere survey released in
June in which a sample of customers said that 60 percent of their
bookings are now online, a number that was only 24 percent in the same
survey just three years ago.

“We believe that these numbers show that online booking is
successfully managing corporate travel programs,” said Bev Heinritz,
general manager of GetThere. “What is less understood outside of the
corporate travel industry is that GetThere continues to help more
corporate travelers book trips online than any other company in the
world. These online bookings are helping corporate America save
hundreds of millions of dollars, and we are rapidly expanding our
global capabilities to help companies in Europe and the rest of the
world achieve the same level of savings.”

GetThere’s online booking technology is helping companies secure
lower average trip costs by helping travelers find and choose fares 15
percent lower than when they book with an agent on the phone, and
helping corporations cut agency fees in half.

In addition to setting a record number of bookings during the
quarter, GetThere rolled out several industry firsts in its product,

    --  First corporate online travel system to make online meeting
        planning a standard component;

    --  First fully-automated online ticket exchange;

    --  GetThere also implemented a modify search option that allows
        travelers to change their trip parameters in the middle of a
        booking; and

    --  Rail booking on Amtrak in the U.S., British rail through The
        Trainline, and an agreement with French rail provider SNCF.
