TravelPerk’s award-winning interface beats Egencia

The TravelPerk platform wins praise for its easy-to-navigate user interface, making it “much easier and convenient to plan your business trips by yourself” rather than having to rely on accounting teams to grant permissions. 

The same cannot be said for Egencia, as the app’s functionality comes under fire for constantly having technical issues that “make it impossible to continue using.”

TravelPerk wins with its highest-rated customer support

TravelPerk’s in-house customer support team is on-hand every minute of the day to help your team overcome anything that may come up along the way, and give you real-time travel news. The team is reachable via the Android or iOS app chat option, phone, or email. Customers say the team “are very helpful! They follow up your trips and save you time!

Unfortunately, Egencia does not boast the same well-rounded customer service that you want from a travel management company. Their customer service has been reviewed as “terrible,” and finding “a good customer service rep is rare.

TravelPerk hosts the world’s largest travel inventory

From flights to car rentals, rail tickets to accommodation options, TravelPerk’s booking tool boasts an unchallenged, worldwide travel inventory to give its users the best options, no matter when they’re booking. “Great service and range of choice for hotels partners, flights & trains schedules.

Egencia does not come up to scratch when it comes to providing users with booking options. It’s causing many customers to jump ship, as one let out their frustration, saying: “there are times where the hotel my company/peers also stay at does not show up in my search.” Many customers find cheaper options when booking directly via the provider’s website, or end up using booking engines like booking.com or Expedia. 

Why users love TravelPerk

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

TravelPerk gets canceled trips refunded by at least 80%

TravelPerk has a feature called FlexiPerk, which allows users to get at least 80% of their trips refunded onto a credit card or as travel points in the platform. This includes if they need to cancel up to 2-hours before departure. In a world filled with uncertainty, you should be able to cancel your trip, no questions asked—and FlexiPerk allows just that. 

Egencia cannot quite offer the same flexibility when it comes to canceling trips. In some cases, bookings are non-refundable, or may only be done over the phone. At best, you’ll need to cancel 24-hours in advance, as is the case with their Hotel Flex Policy.

TravelPerk admins have total control

TravelPerk admins can create smooth approval processes for their teams and ensure control over spending and bookings are within policy. You can manually set up approval flows between the booker, traveler, and approver. Or, automate your approval processes and management features with tool integrations via BambooHR, or tools like Microsoft Azure. 

Egencia’s booking processes are not so smooth. Users often report things like “hard approval process […] constantly fluctuating prices” or say “the approval process can sometimes be misleading.” Not great if you’re a fast-moving company, with faster moving employees!
