The Business Travel Programme, launched today by Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts, is an online corporate account portal specially conceived to reward small to medium sized enterprises (SME) for business stays with the leading luxury hotel group. Joining the programme enables registered companies to take advantage of preferential rates and special benefits at nearly 80 Shangri-La properties around the world.
Enrollment at Shangri-La’s website is quick and simple for SME’s that do not have an existing corporate rate agreement with Shangri-La. Once qualified as a Business Travel Account, a unique identification code will be assigned for company associates to reserve accommodation online or through Shangri-La’s mobile app.
Aside from not requiring a monetary commitment, benefits for partners include up to 10 per cent off the Best Available Rates at all hotels and selected resorts under the Shangri-La, Kerry, Hotel Jen and Traders brands, in addition to savings and complimentary amenities during stays.
For companies to be eligible for the Business Travel Programme, each organisation must meet the following criteria:
• Generate a minimum of 50 room night bookings a year across all participating hotels
• Does not currently have a corporate rate agreement with Shangri-La
• Is not a travel agent or wholesaler
Companies that anticipate generating a higher volume of room nights may be entitled for Shangri-La’s Global Account Programme.
