Corporate Traveller, a subsidiary of the Flight Centre Travel Group (FCTG), today announced the launch of its operations in Singapore to meet the demands of the growing small and medium enterprise (SME) market. Established in 1993, Corporate Traveller has since grown to become a leading corporate travel management solutions provider for more than 13,500 clients globally. Besides operations across Australia and New Zealand, Corporate Traveller also operates in South Africa, UK, Canada and USA. In the move to expand the global reach, Corporate Traveller is also concurrently launching in China, Hong Kong, UAE (Dubai) and India, alongside Singapore.
With close to 200,000 SMEs in Singapore, contributing to almost 50 percent of the nation’s gross domestic profit, Corporate Traveller has identified the rising need for SME owners and employees to embark on overseas business trips on a regular basis. However, many struggle to get the best value out of their flights, accommodation and ground transportation, often trading comfort for the lowest possible price. Precious time can also be wasted when travellers lack access to a well-planned out itinerary.
“For resource-lean SMEs, cost savings will always be a priority and that is why it is essential for them to engage the expertise of a travel management partner that will not only be able to secure the best prices, but also ensure that their travellers’ needs are well taken care of every step along the way. At Corporate Traveller, we believe in adding value to every travellers’ experience, tailored to their budget, with no lock-in contract,” said Bertrand Saillet, General Manager, Southeast Asia of the Corporate Division, FCTG.
Customers can enjoy the full range of Corporate Traveller’s TRAVELsmart suite, designed to boost comfort and cost savings with specially negotiated discounts and complimentary services from preferred airlines, hotels and car hire partners. The TRAVELsmart suite consists of the following privileges:
- smartFLY – access to bonus airfare rebates and discounted memberships for Corporate Traveller’s preferred airline lounges
- smartSTAY – access to free value adds at Corporate Traveller’s preferred hotels, including Wi-Fi, breakfast, car parking, room upgrade, laundry service and bonus loyalty points
- smartDRIVE – access to free value adds at Corporate Traveller’s preferred car hire companies, including in-car Wi-Fi connection, vehicle class upgrade and discounts on return transfers
Corporate Traveller also boasts a unique EXPERT technology suite, which harnesses the latest technology to help travellers book, plan and get the best value out of any budget.
