Orbitz Looses 3 Car Rental Companies

As o April 1, Orbitz stopped offering car rentals through Enterprise, National and Alamo. Though both sides claim they ended the relationship, Enterprise who operates National and Alamo as well, says Orbitz insisted on unacceptably high commission rates.

Orbitz has been offering Enterprise car rentals since 2001. A spokeswoman for Enterprise stated that many consumers may not be aware that Orbitz intentionally limit’s the number of brands offered on their website. Orbitz countered the claim stating they display results from 13 car rental companies.

Orbitz quickly pointed out that their issues with Enterprise is completely different then their issues with American Airlines which had to do with direct connect bookings. American Airlines has pulled its flights off Orbitz and their sister site CheapTickets.
