GetThere Unveils New User Interface Options Featuring Travelocity Design and Flow; Award-Winning Leisure Look and Feel Gives Business Travelers Familiar Interface for Booking Policy-Compliant Travel Online

ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–May 8, 2006–GetThere(R), the world’s
leading online corporate travel reservation technology, introduced new
user interface options for business travelers today at the Association
of Corporate Travel Executives Global Education Conference in Atlanta.
The new design is the latest installment of an ongoing
technology-sharing initiative between Travelocity(R) and GetThere that
brings many award-winning leisure travel displays and booking
processes into the online business travel arena. Business travelers
booked more than $6.3 billion in travel via GetThere in 2005.

GetThere leveraged Travelocity’s high-volume leisure experience
and usability testing to build the new user-friendly interface and
refine the system’s booking path for business travelers. Available to
GetThere clients and agency resellers worldwide by the end of June,
the design features a variety of color styles for corporations to
choose from, each highlighted by a concise, visually-appealing
block-style layout. New formatting makes it easier for travelers to
see and search content throughout the site, from login page to
availability, itinerary review and purchase.

The site also includes streamlined functionality, improving
usability through:

    --  better placement and flow of fields for quick data entry and
        travel search;

    --  easy to read corporate branding and messaging for traveling
        employees throughout the site;

    --  prominently displayed schedules and pricing on availability
        screens; and

    --  travel tools that include city information, driving
        directions, maps, links to activities and dining, etc.

The unveiling of the new GetThere interface follows the successful
implementation of Travelocity-themed car and hotel booking paths in
2005 and the air path in early 2006. Richer hotel property
descriptions and Travelocity’s TotalPrice(SM) for Cars functionality
contributed to the growth of GetThere’s hotel and car bookings in
2005; the value of hotel reservations made via GetThere in 2005 grew
29 percent, with car bookings up 23 percent. These figures support the
results of GetThere’s 2005 Benchmark Survey, in which 71 percent of
responding travel managers predicted online adoption rates will
increase with the leisure look-and-feel of GetThere’s enhanced design.

“GetThere’s latest enhancements are driving increased adoption and
customer satisfaction across our client base,” said John Smith,
president of Chicago-based Tower Travel Management, which has more
than 100 corporate clients using the booking engine today. “GetThere
is clearly bridging the gap between corporate booking tools and their
consumer-oriented counterparts. As road warriors find it even easier
to book policy compliant travel online, their corporations are more
likely to maximize savings.” According to a January 2006 Jupiter
Research report, 55 percent of managed frequent business travelers are
now booking online.

“Our new user interface and upgraded booking paths mark the latest
step in the convergence of business and leisure travel in the online
sector,” said Beverly Heinritz, general manager for GetThere. “The
resources provided by Travelocity ultimately deliver unique advantages
for GetThere clients – travel managers benefit from our unparalleled
global reach and scale, while their travelers can book business trips
with preferred suppliers in the same manner that they shop and book
their vacation. We look forward to helping our clients implement the
options that work best for their companies and travelers.”
