The world is full of hotels, and different reservation channels offer the same hotels at different prices. For business travellers and companies, centralising reservations is the best way to ensure the maximum benefits from staying at hotels. The hotel selection we offer to our clients compiles over one million international alternatives from all major channels.
You can make your reservation online or by contacting your own service team. Our mobile app will be updated this autumn, allowing reservations to be made by smartphone. Our hotel database includes both the extensive Preferred Extras Hotel Program (PEHP) from GBT and your company’s own contract prices. GBT’s position as the leading international travel agency ensures an extensive hotel selection and competitive prices for our clients.
According to a completed market study, American Express Global Business Travel (GBT) offered a better hotel selection than the best online travel agencies in terms of the room rates and availability. 87% of GBT’s hotel prices were cheaper than or equal to those of online travel agencies. Room availability from GBT’s selection was as high as 88%, substantially better than 83% for the best online agency.
The PEHP hotel programme that GBT offers its clients contains 50,000 hotels in 180 countries. Here are a few practical examples of the programme’s benefits that are also available to Finnish business travellers:
- PEHP benefit: Lowest possible rate, discounts from the best available rate (BAR) and special offers. For example, our cooperation with Hilton allows travellers to achieve Hilton Gold status with four overnight stays within 90 days from registration, whereas 20 stays are normally required.
- PEHP benefit: Last room availability (LRA)
