Engage Travelers with the Best Experience

Looking for an experience that makes your travelers genuinely happy to book in-policy? Direct Travel helps you create a program that travelers want to use.

Your travelers are individuals with unique preferences, which means your corporate travel planning program needs to create an end-to-end travel experience that they won’t be able to find outside the program. Start at the beginning with planning business travel.

Direct Travel has a wide array of booking avenues available to make corporate travel planning simple.

Whether booking on a mobile device or with a travel advisor, give your travelers the resources and tools they need to be successful.

Cater to your employees’ preferences by personalizing travel booking services to enhance their satisfaction while on the road.

Support your travelers by ensuring they know how to contact their team of travel advisors to assist in the booking process if needed.

Putting the right resources within reach of your travelers, and customizing these resources to what you know will resonate with your travelers, makes their booking process easy, ultimately increasing satisfaction and travel policy compliance.

Access the Best Content & Rates

You need a partner that has extensive experience in the industry who can manage relationships with the key suppliers that get your business travelers from point A to point B – and back home again – with the best content and rates.

As a Direct Travel client, you benefit from our robust strategic supplier partnerships by having direct access to unique supplier deals. Our account managers evaluate your program to connect you with suppliers who meet your business travel needs and match your organizational culture.

Using our business travel planning service makes the choice simple.

  • Creating your travel itinerary – Whether its air, hotel, or car rental, our suppliers offer the most options and the best rates available.
  • Ensuring optimal options – The Direct Savings Desk queues trips above a determined dollar threshold to be examined for opportunities to lower the fare in premium categories by applying exclusive off tariff fares, applying waivers and favors, and more.
  • Checking continuously until departure – Through our system (and enhanced low fare/low rate modules if desired), we continuously watch your reservation and recheck the price until departure.

Access to the best content and rates are only good if they can be easily applied to traveler reservations. We simplify reservations by using a dynamic back-end system that takes care of your travelers and each booking with ease, to ensure a seamless business travel planning experience.

Keep Your Business Travel Planning Program Moving

Our many years in the industry have given us a deep understanding of what makes a travel program tick, so we can optimize your corporate travel planning process. With the fast rate of change, we make sure that you are getting cutting-edge systems and processes to ensure travel program success.

From the moment that your travelers book their trip until they come home, we are continually working to deliver an exceptional experience while keeping you in the know.
