Europe’s fastest growing online travel management platform TravelPerk has announced the integration of Trainline.
The integration marks a further step for TravelPerk in the enablement of seamless travel booking and management for business travellers, thanks to technology-driven solutions from digital brands. The decision to integrate a UK train booking service into the TravelPerk platform is a strategic one for the company – who have seen first-hand the rapidly growing increase in business travellers choosing trains.
In Q1 2019, train bookings made on the platform have increased by 138%. The choice of Trainline for Business as this partner is evidence of TravelPerk’s commitment to user-friendly experiences and simplicity for the traveller.
Under this latest integration, travellers searching the TravelPerk platform for domestic UK travel will see results from the entire Trainline for Business UK inventory, able to add train tickets to their booking with the click of a button – alongside flights and accommodation – and collect them from one of the 1700 ticket-collection kiosks installed in stations across the UK. Tickets will be covered by Trainline’s own ticket adjustment and cancellation services.
Avi Meir, CEO and co-founder of TravelPerk, said: “Access to booking train travel is a growing priority for our customers, and by bringing this much respected service into the platform we are enabling them greater control over their entire trip; reducing the effort involved in organising travel for work while ensuring continual access to the broadest range of options to suit their travel needs. We’re excited to watch our partnership with Trainline for Business flourish in coming months.”
