Traveling Ctrip customers can book a ride from a local ride-hailing company through the agency, eliminating the need to download an additional app

While ride-hailing increasingly becomes a transportation mainstay for city dwellers, travelers can sometimes feel uncertain about how to use the services in an unfamiliar area. Ctrip, a popular Chinese travel agency, is offering a solution to ease this pain point, partnering with the London travel startup Splyt  to give travelers ride-sharing coverage wherever they are.

Travelers are able to use the service in most popular destinations in Europe and North America, simply using the Ctrip app to book rides with local services. The offer will be available in 1,000 cities and 50 countries.

This partnership is part of Ctrip's effort to offer its users multiple services under one platform, enabling greater convenience for its customers while also generating business for local ride-hail services.
