Egencia, the business travel arm of the Expedia group, has launched Egencia Advantage, a new global programme of services designed to support business travellers throughout their entire journey.
From airport lounge access to traveller risk management, travel visa services and beyond, the new programme provides travellers with extra perks that improve satisfaction on the road for greater efficiency and productivity, while giving companies the means to improve their travel programmes.
At launch, Egencia Advantage includes access to LoungeBuddy, a global aggregator of airport lounge information; travel visa processing services through CIBT Visas; the wisdom of AirHelp, the world’s number one air passenger rights company, which helps business travellers apply for compensation from the airlines following a flight disruption; and a connection to Traveller Risk Management service providers.
“As a leading travel management company, we are going beyond booking to offer travellers a best-in-class integrated experience that makes corporate travel as efficient and enjoyable as possible,” says Mark Hollyhead, chief operating officer at Egencia. “There are so many touchpoints throughout the trip where we can help – from airport check-in to lounge access. At Egencia, we build our own technology, so we can connect travellers with the service providers they know and love, and fold them into a seamless package that not only benefits the traveller, but also helps drive compliance for companies.”
