Corporate Traveller boosts smartSTAY and smartFLY programme of extras for SME-spend clients

Corporate Traveller, the UK’s largest travel management company specialising in clients with an SME-spend of £50K to £2M, is expanding its smartSTAY and smartFLY programme of exclusive added-value benefits.

The Savoy in London is the latest property to join the smartSTAY programme meaning clients booking a room on any date will receive complimentary breakfast, free wifi, plus a 20 per cent discount on spa and beauty treatments. In addition to The Savoy, smartSTAY already features some 3000 properties worldwide, including hotel groups IHG, Accor, Radisson and Hilton, where Corporate Traveller clients are given exclusive year-round access to a minimum of three complimentary extras. Inclusions vary per hotel but range from room upgrades, free wifi and breakfast, to parking, laundry and bonus loyalty points.

New to Corporate Traveller’s smartFLY programme of value-added airline extras is the offer of complimentary standard seat selection with Air France/KLM one way in economy on long haul flights. The smartFLY programme already features complimentary extras such as a free No.1 lounge pass for any customer booking Virgin Atlantic premium economy on any route.

Andy Hegley, UK general manager Corporate Traveller commented: “TRAVELsmart is unique to our business and it delivers a new level of value and return to our clients. Most TMCs wouldn’t offer their SME clients this sort of product, but that’s where Corporate Traveller is different.  We believe in giving our clients superior personal service whilst helping them to reduce their business travel costs. Thanks to the buying power of our parent company Flight Centre Travel Group, we have been able to negotiate with suppliers to provide a whole range of tangible complimentary extras that are of considerable benefit to our clients.

“Companies are increasingly realising that a poor travel experience impacts on their employees’ productivity while away on business. The value-added benefits of smartSTAY and smartFLY can make a big difference to a traveller’s level of comfort without incurring extra costs,” said Hegley.
