Do you know how much time and money you are spending on business travel? For many businesses the answer is no, and they’re missing out on valuable savings.
This is where SMART Corporate Travel can help. Designed specifically for Australian SMEs, this new online travel platform drives significant savings and efficiencies.
Below are five of the many reasons your business could benefit from using SMART Corporate Travel.
1) Reduce costs
With SMART Corporate Travel, your business has access to thousands of deals on flights, hotels and car hire for the first time. Previously these were only available to large corporates. These deals can significantly reduce the cost of your business travel. Even better, there’s no online booking fees and no lock-in contracts.
The tool also allows you to set rules based on your specific travel needs and budget. For example, you can block premium classes of travel and set rate-caps on hotels.
SMART Corporate Travel customers benefit from exclusive discounts and offers from rewards partners, discover the latest offer here.
2) Save time and increase productivity
There’s no need to continue wasting time shopping around across multiple websites to find the best fares. Now you can compare thousands of airlines, hotels and car hire options on a single platform and in a single search, while booking your entire trip in less than 90 seconds. This frees you up to devote more time to running your business. It also eliminates the need for an in-house travel booker.
SMART Corporate Travel’s easy-to-use technology stores up to 100 traveller profiles in one place, leaving less room for error when it comes to spelling names or entering frequent flyer numbers.
We know many SMEs and their employees are on the move. With the SMART Corporate Travel mobile app, businesses can book and manage travel while on the road, maximising productivity and peace of mind.
