Egencia, the business travel arm of the Expedia group, has introduced Egencia Advantage, a new global programme of services designed to support business travellers throughout their entire journey.
At launch, Egencia Advantage includes:
LoungeBuddy: Global aggregator of airport lounge information for business travellers. When travellers are delayed at the airport or have a long layover, booking into one of the hundreds of lounges available worldwide gives them quiet and comfort to get some work done while waiting, or the ability to grab a bite, rest and recharge.
Visa services: Through a global network of partners including CIBT visas, Egencia now offers travel visa processing services, which include visa application, renewal or replacement needs around the world.
AirHelp: The world’s number one air passenger rights company helps business travellers apply for compensation from the airlines following a flight disruption. AirHelp supports passengers who experience a delayed or cancelled flight, or a missed connection within the European Union (EU), leaving the EU or arriving in the EU with a European airline.
Traveller Risk Management: Egencia connects travellers with recommended providers for their specific duty of care needs.
Aside from providing travellers with extra perks on the road for greater efficiency and productivity, Egencia Advantage also gives companies the means to improve their travel programmes.
Egencia Advantage will continue to add services as relationships develop.
