UK hotel chain Best Western has unveiled a free business travel payment card for corporate travellers.
The card will allow customers to book all their travel needs including hotel stays, restaurant and bar bills, phone calls and other extras without the need for cash.
Discounted rail travel is also available with up to 51% off and the card means users can manage all their spending in one centralised system, dispensing with the need for expense claims and receipts.
Best Western does not charge for using the card that will be accepted at all of its 278 British hotels.
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.”
