GTREX Capital Announces Travel Service Portals Planned for up to 25 Million Global Travel Exchange Customers in Asian Markets.

ALISO VIEJO, Calif. -- GTREX Capital, Inc. (OTCBB:GRXI) and its wholly-owned portfolio investment, Global Travel Exchange, Inc., a leading provider of direct access travel distribution technology, today announced a plan to develop travel service portals, which will allow customers to book travel and other related services in business locations across Asia.

"As part of its expansion into East and Southeast Asian markets, Global Travel Exchange is in the final stages of negotiations with Asian companies, which range from banking institutions to retail locations, to bring travel service capabilities to their customers," commented GTREX Capital chairman and chief executive officer Christopher Berlandier. "The portals will be accessible on company websites and at targeted business locations that serve up to 25 million customers. Global Travel Exchange will utilize regional marketing professionals experienced in penetrating the target markets to bring a large number of users to these portals to maximize their revenue potential."

GTREX Capital recently announced that Global Travel Exchange has partnered with Matrix Traveller to distribute travel inventory to customers in Thailand and other Asian markets, generating transaction, set-up and license fees for Global Travel Exchange. This partnership and Global Travel Exchange's ongoing marketing initiative for branded debit and cheque cards across Asia are expected to further bolster Global Travel Exchange revenue potential in this region.

"With each additional service that Global Travel Exchange brings to Asia, the more complete its offerings become and the greater profile it can achieve in this market. To reach its potential in the travel distribution industry, Global Travel Exchange is pursuing a comprehensive expansion program, which includes the growth of its core distribution offerings, as well as the expansion of attractive add-on products such as the branded Global Cheque Card and related card products," added Mr. Berlandier.

Global Travel Exchange has developed and implemented several Extensible Markup Language (XML) interfaces, in accordance with OTA specifications, to ensure a direct connection between Global Travel Exchange and suppliers of travel services. Global Travel Exchange's high-quality direct connection will provide clients with access to higher quality information, translating into more convenience for travelers and travel arrangers.
