Business accommodation solutions: Hotel consolidation
The benefits of consolidating hotel spend
Exhausted travellers, safety gaps, soaring costs – these are just three of the many headaches you’ll have if your travellers book hotels outside your business travel programme.
If your travellers are booking their own hotels, how do you know where they are in case of an emergency? How do you help them find an alternative when the property can’t deliver or even stop them from booking presidential suites? Know that you are not alone if you have these questions floating around.
A sure-fire way to put this out – integrate and implement hotel booking within your travel programme to provide clear visibility of your hotel spend so you can troubleshoot traveller pain points and take steps to reduce your costs!

By booking through one globally-connected platform it’s easy to secure the best fares on the day; manage credits, vouchers and loyalty points; analyse your spend; and deliver impressive savings.
In fact, it’s a no-brainer. Why then, are hotel bookings often left up to the traveller?
