Qantas has launched a comprehensive travel management tool, tailored specifically for small and medium-sized enterprises in Australia.
This tool is part of the Qantas Business Rewards program and is designed to simplify and optimize the travel management process for businesses.
The key features are:
- One-Stop Booking Tool: This feature allows businesses to book and manage various travel elements like flights, hotels, and car hires through a single platform.
- Manage Trip Feature: It provides flexibility in managing individual or comprehensive travel plans, enhancing the overall travel planning experience.
- Business Travel Policies: Businesses can establish their own travel policies and automatically apply them to bookings. This not only improves efficiency but also provides travel managers with better visibility of booking behaviors.
- Data Reporting and Analytics: The tool offers real-time access to detailed data reporting and analytics. This feature aids in identifying trends, managing travel costs, and preparing and exporting expense reports.
- Qantas Business Rewards Benefits Management: Users can easily manage benefits from the Qantas Business Rewards program and access exclusive partner offers.
The development of this new tool is a direct response to feedback from members of Qantas Business Rewards. They expressed the need for a more streamlined approach to managing business travel, especially as the industry rebounds to pre-COVID levels.
After a successful trial period in August, Qantas is now extending this service to over 480,000 program members.
Qantas Loyalty CEO Olivia Wirth said that Qantas was responding to direct feedback from businesses about the demands and costs involved in managing travel requirements.
“We’ve been listening to our Qantas Business Rewards members who have told us that making it easier to manage their business travel will add more value to the program,” said Ms Wirth.
“The investment we’re making in Qantas Business Rewards will provide Australian businesses with a one-stop platform to manage their business travel needs and make the most of their rewards.
“One in five Australian small and medium sized businesses are Qantas Business Rewards members and this new booking experience adds to the benefits they already enjoy, including flight discounts and earning Qantas Points on travel and everyday business expenses.”
To encourage more businesses to benefit from this new tool, Qantas is waiving the $89.50 fee to join Qantas Business Rewards until 8 December 2023.
