Travelocity teams up with Groople for group travel


For some reason I just heard this today: Travelocity has joined forces with Groople, an online group travel booker, to grab a bigger slice of group travel:

    The new arrangement creates a vehicle whereby anyone planning a large event can visit the Travelocity Web site and click on the "5+ rooms" button. Among the features now available: each room can be paid for on a separate credit card, rather than a group's organizer having to foot the bill and divide the cost later.

From a quick skip through the site, it looks more oriented toward weddings and family vacations than businesses, but there's no reason anyone with a smallish group couldn't use it to save a few bucks. I hear SMERFs (social, military, educational, religious, and fraternal groups) rejoicing!
