What Benefits Can Your Corporate Travel Program Offer?
If your company has its fair share of workforce travel, you know there are plenty of travel management companies out there to choose from. Finding a solution to not only optimize an employee’s user experience, but one that will also benefit the company can be taxing and challenging to say the least.
While most companies with significant travel volume have a partially integrated travel management platform for employees, only a small percentage of those traveling employees are actually utilizing those tools. With massive corporations designing their services to be more appealing to administrators, many are missing the mark on users’ booking experience, which in return lowers the adoption rate to keep employees booking with the tools provided.
So what is the solution to keep administrators and users happy? It’s simple, finding a platform that is not only user-friendly for travelers but also has major user and administrator benefits. With the right corporate travel platform companies can continue to travel as much or more without increasing costs. That’s where Hotel Engine comes in. Not only does Hotel Engine offer reward points for each user to use at any hotel booked through the platform, but it also offers cashback incentives on your team’s hotel bookings.
How can a Business Travel Rewards Program benefit you?
Loyalty program benefits are a tale as old as time, and understandably so. They not only offer the option for room upgrades but also, once enough points are accumulated, free nights at available hotels. Most employees with frequent travel have loyalty programs set up with specific hotel brands, and some are looking for the best rate at any hotel, taking longer for points to accumulate. Why not offer a program that allows users to accumulate reward points more quickly with the option of booking at any hotel with the best rates?
Hotel Engine offers users a tiered rewards program to accumulate points just by booking through the platform. Most hotel brands recognize loyalty member programs and add loyalty points for members, even if the room was booked through a third-party platform. This allows users to double-dip in rewards for even deeper savings and keeps employees happy. The result of this program offers major benefits. It gives employees the option to use hotel brand loyalty points for leisure travel, and Hotel Engine reward points towards business travel results in company travel cost reduction.
Our Volume Incentive Program
Most travel management companies charge fees and require contracts with the use of their services, but with so many options to book hotels why pay for lower hotel rates? Not only are you paying for a service, but more often than not there are additional fees as well. When you start accumulating booking fees per traveler/per trip, non-usage penalties, and cancellations fees the cost or travel program continually increases.
Hotel Engine has become a master of hotel booking programs and understands the frustrations that come along with trying to stay within the allotted travel budget for companies. Offering eligible companies’ participation in volume incentive programs. This tiered system of growth-based incentives empowers your company to earn cashback as more users book.
The best part is that there are no obligations or penalties for participating – only monetary benefits for you hitting company targets.
With Hotel Engine, you can implement a hotel booking program beneficial for your company as a whole. Don’t waste any more time and money on a travel program that is not meeting all of your company and employee needs!
