Best Western has recently launched their first ever payment card for business travellers. The card is free to all UK businesses and is set to simplify business travel across the country. The Best Western Business Account is also the first in the country to combine hotel accommodation with discounted train travel (up to 51%) making it even easier for businesses to book and pay without the need for time consuming expense claims, receipts and petty cash.
From 1st February, account holders can use the payment card for hotels stays, room service, restaurant spend, bar bills, newspapers, phone calls, leisure activities such as golf and spa treatments, as well as other hotel expenses at any of the groups 278 British hotels – all with no fees. What’s more, a full breakdown of all travel and hotel spend is available through an online centralised billing and reporting facility with regular email updates sent to the account holder.
Further benefits include up to six weeks interest free credit, VAT reporting and Best Western Rewards points for employees.
Keith Pope, Managing Director of Best Western said, “Business travel is a key part of the industry and a real focus for Best Western in 2012. The Best Western Business Account will ease booking and paying for our business guests and eliminate the need for claiming expenses on hotel and train travel.
“By launching the Best Western Business Account we are making our guests lives easier and more enjoyable, with more time to spend enjoying life rather than worrying about expense payments.”
Working with one of the group’s partners, Atos, the launch of the Best Western Business Account will strengthen the group’s business customer base.
