Carey International, the global leader in chauffeured service and ground transportation management, announced, today, a strategic partnership with Jeenie®, the leading peer-to-peer marketplace for on-demand video and voice calls with HUMAN language interpreters. Travelers using Carey services will receive access to Jeenie’s game-changing Mobile App to connect instantly with qualified bilingual and bicultural experts 24/7 anywhere in the world.
One of 2018’s hottest travel apps, Jeenie matches customers to interpreters who know their native language as well as the local language where they are traveling, all with the tap of a button. In under a minute, the interpreter appears on the screen of the customer’s smartphone or iPad® to help them comfortably conduct 3-way video or audio conversations with drivers, ticket agents, hotel concierges, restaurant staff, shopkeepers, and everyone else.
“Every year Carey transports nearly two million business and leisure travelers in more than 1000 cities worldwide,” said Sandy Miller, Chief Executive Officer of Carey International, Inc. “Providing our clients with real-time translation services through Jeenie is a natural complement to the overall Carey Experience.”
Beginning January 21, 2020, Carey customers traveling outside the US will receive a coupon for free minutes in their Carey booking confirmation to use Jeenie on their trip. “Eliminating the fear of not being able to communicate in another country opens up a whole new world of travel opportunities. 24/7 access to someone who speaks your language wherever you are in the world empowers you to go places you might have avoided, to get off the beaten path, and to engage more authentically in the local culture,” states Kirsten Baker, CEO and Co-Founder of Jeenie.
Carey International is the first ground transportation company to partner with Jeenie® and plans to expand their relationship with more robust offerings in the future.
Jeenie® is a global, peer-to-peer marketplace of HUMAN language experts standing by 24/7 to jump on a voice or video call to help you with any of your communication needs. With the tap of a button, the Jeenie mobile app connects customers with LIVE interpreters for language help & cultural advice in less than a minute. www.Jeenie.com
