Budget chain Travelodge has launched a one-stop service to help companies restart their business travel programmes.
Called Travelodge Business, it has been created to help businesses restart their business travel programme post-pandemic, by supporting their accommodation needs and giving them substantial cash savings.
Travelodge says it can help small companies save £1,000 a year on their hotel spend and up to £250,000 for large companies.
The service includes a tailored, self-service business travel solution that offers genuine cost savings, exclusive benefits and a dedicated support team, enabling business customers to have full control over their bookings at a click of a button.
Travelodge says this is a vital feature in the current environment as business travel plans can rapidly change.
In addition, customers that hold a Travelodge Business Account card can get all the benefits of Travelodge Business as well as up to six weeks’ interest-free credit so that the business traveller does not have to pay for anything on arrival.
This includes expenses such as the room booking, wi-fi and food and drink in the hotel Bar Café.
Travelodge Chief Executive Craig Bonnar said: “We are seeing green shoots that business travel is restarting across the UK as businesses recognise that travel is important to success.
“Business travel is often about building relationships and some face-to-face meetings are essential.
“Our research shows company bosses are concerned about their bottom line and how they can make business travel affordable and safe in the ‘new normal’.”
