Member News: Parking Partnership Just the Ticket for Italo Passengers
Global online parking reservation provider, ParkCloud, has agreed a partnership with Italian high-speed rail network, Italo, to offer its passengers the convenience of reserving parking before they travel.
Affiliated exclusively through white label italotreno.parkcloud.com, Italo’s network of customers will be able to search, choose and book their parking across the 18 rail stations Italo covers.
Comparable to ParkCloud’s own commitment to offering its customers a fast, quality, easy-to-use service, Italo provides passengers with the choice of four levels of ‘journey ambiences’ – smart, comfort, prima and club executive, as they travel between its three well connected lines.
ParkCloud’s Managing Director, Mark Pegler, said:
“We’re delighted to be working alongside Italo to bring its passengers additional benefits to complement their rail experience, providing access to ParkCloud’s extensive network of parking providers.
“It was important that the parking offer be as accessible as possible – to both regular rail users and tourists alike – underlining the importance of the various touchpoints and desired language options. We’re confident this collaboration can continue to grow as we work together to explore further opportunities to add value for rail users.”
Servicing over 13 cities across Italy, Italo’s routes cover popular visitor destinations such as Rome, Milan, Venice and Florence.
