Corporate Traveller expands SmartSTAY and SmartDRIVE


1 min read

Corporate Traveller, a division of Flight Centre Travel Group, has announced the expansion of its SmartSTAY and SmartDRIVE corporate travel programmes.

Both initiatives reward business travellers with a number of exclusive benefits and value add-ons when booking with various properties and car hire companies within the TravelSmart range.

A few of these perks include early check-in, free room upgrades and laundry service, complimentary Wi-Fi and breakfast, parking, unlimited mileage, a free additional driver feature with your car hire, and bonus loyalty points.

The Radisson Red Hotel in Cape Town is the latest hotel to join the SmartSTAY portfolio in South Africa. On any booking date, travellers will receive complimentary breakfast, Wi-Fi, and unlimited bottled water. Along with Radisson, SmartSTAY already features around 3,000 properties globally, including hotel groups such as IHG, Accor, and Hilton.

Ready Service is the latest feature from SmartDRIVE, which offers a choice of unlimited mileage options, insurance access waivers, guaranteed availability, and the additional driver free feature available in various car hire group types with Europcar.

Travellers experience smarter productivity with an increase in their comfort and convenience, explains Oz Desai, GM Corporate Traveller South Africa.

“With value-adds designed specifically for them through Corporate Travellers’ TravelSmart Programme, we can match our clients efficiently to the services they want, and never even thought they needed, thanks to the buying power of our parent company Flight Centre Travel Group.”

The value-added benefits of SmartSTAY and SmartDRIVE can make a huge difference to a traveller’s level of comfort, while getting more for every rand they spend, he concludes.
