The Plus Side Of Business Travel

Business travel is back on the agenda and let’s face it, now more than ever businesses are looking for new value, enhanced safety and certainty. That’s why the HotelsPlus program designed by Flight Centre Business Travel (FCBT) is even more appealing than ever.

Every time you check-in with a HotelsPlus partner you will automatically receive some great extras exclusive to FCBT guests. And who doesn’t appreciate some free bonuses? Apart from special rates, you’ll receive a minimum of three free value adds.

HotelsPlus Benefits

We’re talking free breakfast and Wifi, plus a third complimentary benefit which could be a room upgrade, food and beverage discount or late check-out/early check-in. Plus the good news is that these perks are not just to lure you back from your lockdown induced travel hiatus, they are year-round bonuses available to HotelsPlus members.

It doesn’t end there either, the pluses keep coming because you get access to an exclusive community of SME professionals too. You can schmooze and network with other inspiring and switched on leaders, while making valuable business contacts. Attend partner events designed to bring you together and also unlock exclusive perks to help support and grow your business.

With Accor and Choice Hotel brands to choose from, there’s a HotelsPlus accommodation partner to suit your business travel needs, budget and location. Accor owned retreats, resorts, hotels and apartments include - Sofitel Hotels and Resorts, Mantra Hotels, Peppers, Novotel, Pullman and Ibis. While Choice Hotels brands Australia wide include – Comfort Inn, Econo Lodge, and Ascend, Clarion and Quality Hotels.

 

For a range of different reasons businesses like yours are choosing their accommodation more thoughtfully, and also choosing to spend their dollars with providers that have good all-round credentials - from enhanced cleaning, to eco-friendly practices.

Choice Commitment To Clean

Choice Hotels’ Commitment to Clean is all about implementing new and improved COVID-19 protocols to help all travellers feel safe and cared for. This includes best practice cleaning and disinfecting, social distancing in common areas and communicating with guests to promote health and wellbeing. So you can feel as comfortable as you do at home.

The pandemic-induced reduction in business travel has also made companies rethink the way they travel and its global impact. While FCTB partners have been addressing environmental issues for a number of years, many are now doubling down on their progress. One example is Accor’s Planet 21 environmental program.

Accor Planet 21

As part of the group’s commitment to net zero carbon emissions by 2050, Accor properties prioritised the elimination of all guest-related single-use plastics in 2021 – from bathroom products, to plastic wrapped pens. While some of the changes may sound small, the impact is impressive with Accor in the Pacific region already having avoided the use of more than three million plastic straws a year and 20,000 plastic bags once used to wrap slippers. That’s a great step forward for the planet.

There’s no ignoring the fact that a lot of things have changed of late, so maybe it’s time to shake-up your hotel program too.

As you, and your travellers, hit the road (and air) again, it’s good to know that all HotelsPlus accommodation options are hand selected to offer a safer, more comfortable, convenient and productive stay – guaranteed.
