TravelPerk’s has a huge corporate travel inventory

TravelPerk’s inventory is unmatched—you’ve got access to the most transport and accommodation options anywhere on the web. Inventory coverage includes Airbnb, Expedia, Trainline, and more enabling simple and secure booking. TravelPerk can also store your data preferences and loyalty points to be used whenever you need them. One user was delighted that you can also filter hotels by loyalty programs too.

Navan doesn’t quite match up. Despite a large inventory, some customers “​​often find better rates and more options for flights and hotels through Google.” This is due to fewer low-cost carrier options on the platform—”Navan can be $100 more than what’s on Google Flights.” Plus, Navan rail travel options are very limited—you can only book through Eurostar.

TravelPerk’s 24/7 support is the top-rated in the industry

TravelPerk’s real-time customer support team operates at a target 15-second response time or less—meaning you’re only ever a couple of clicks away from a solid knowledge base in times of crisis. Described as “straight A” by its users, the TravelPerk support team goes above and beyond to ensure your employees are safe and up-to-date with notifications when traveling away on business trips.

Navan’ support service doesn’t receive the same stellar reviews—with users reporting that “support is subpar” and “lackluster at best”.

Navan are a US-based company with US-based customer support— one user said “they’re not very knowledgeable of the European market.” Not ideal for global businesses looking for a global corporate travel management solution.

TravelPerk gets you the best deals on all your travel plans

TravelPerk has an extensive worldwide inventory across flights, accommodation, car rentals, and rail fares—and that includes low-cost carriers so you can be sure you’re always getting the best deal. You can even book Airbnbs through TravelPerk’s online booking tool.

Plus, TravelPerk’s premium users can benefit from a wide variety of negotiated rates. Users love the “huge, off-the-charts inventory” and known to be “cheaper than many other booking platforms”.

Navan—whilst offering a large inventory—just doesn’t stack up when it comes to the flights, accommodations, and other fares needed for successful business travel. User reviews even report that “sometimes rates are higher than booking directly”.

Why users love TravelPerk

Here’s why thousands of companies have chosen TravelPerk to manage their business travel!

  • Instant platform setup
  • $0 setup fee & no hidden costs
  • 15s target response time for customer support
  • 80% of the cost back for cancelled trips
  • Claim 25% of your travel VAT

TravelPerk offers total transparency with fees

TravelPerk uses  simple and easy to understand pricing —no hidden fees at any point. That means you can be absolutely sure of what you’re paying with TravelPerk. Plus, you only pay when you travel—no surprises.

The same cannot be said for Navan—whose fees can end up being “up to 20% of the flight cost.” Navan charges a monthly fee per user regardless if that user travels—you’re paying no matter what. 

Some customers are also unhappy with how “Navan’s fees show up as separate charges on credit card statements,” making business travel accounting and expense reports more challenging.

TravelPerk doesn’t charge you for changes

TravelPerk knows that things don’t always go to plan—and we don’t charge you for it. There are no fees for amending a travel booking regardless of your plan, and adding FlexiPerk adds an extra layer of flexibility.

FlexiPerk allows business travelers to cancel a booking up to 2 hours before the trip and receive 80% of the total fare back. No hassle or hidden fees, just your money back—there really is “nothing to complain about” when it comes to TravelPerk’s fee-free flexibility.
