Egencia Puts Business Travelers First with Egencia Advantage

From airport lounge access, to risk management and Visa processing services, the new program prioritizes traveler satisfaction for corporate travel

BELLEVUE, Wash., Nov. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Egencia®, the business travel arm of the Expedia group, today introduces Egencia® Advantage, a new global program of services designed to support business travelers throughout their entire journey. From airport lounge access, to traveler risk management, travel visa services and beyond, the new program provides travelers with extra perks that improve satisfaction on the road for greater efficiency and productivity, while giving companies the means to improve their travel programs. 

Egencia has successfully brought the technology heritage, relentless focus on user experience and innovative spirit of its parent company Expedia, Inc. into the enterprise. In 2013, Egencia launched its new app, Egencia TripNavigator, which dramatically improves the in-trip experience for business travelers. The app provides step-by-step navigation and offers integrated access to Egencia Travel Consultants. Today, 10,000 companies worldwide partner with Egencia to drive travel compliance and cost savings. (PRNewsFoto/Egencia, an Expedia, Inc. Company) (PRNewsFoto/)

"As a leading travel management company (TMC), we are going beyond booking to offer travelers a best-in-class integrated experience that makes corporate travel as efficient and enjoyable as possible. There are so many touchpoints throughout the trip where we can help – from airport check-in to lounge access," said Mark Hollyhead, chief operating officer at Egencia. "At Egencia, we build our own technology, so we can connect travelers with the service providers they know and love, and fold them into a seamless package that not only benefits the traveler, but also helps drive compliance for companies."

Egencia® Advantage will continue to add services as relationships develop. At launch, Egencia® Advantage includes: 

  • LoungeBuddy: Global aggregator of airport lounge information for business travelers. When travelers 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 unrivaled 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 travelers 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 EU, leaving the EU or arriving in the EU with a European airline. The service makes the claiming process as easy and seamless as possible for Egencia travelers.
  • Traveler Risk Management: Egencia connects travelers with recommended providers for their specific duty of care needs.
