TravelPerk 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 sizable 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 bigger inventory means more options and the best rates on the market. External research found that, when it comes to accommodation in the UK, US, Germany, Spain & France, TravelPerk is cheaper than Navan 58% of the time.

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

TravelPerk’s real-time customer support team operates at a target 15-second response time —meaning you’re only ever a couple of clicks away from help 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.
Navan users report that “support is awful” and “agents are completely incompetent”.

And that’s despite Navan charging extra for support ($16-$25). Having access to the right support is incredibly important in business travel, as confirmed by one previous Navan customer who said ‘their horrible support will make you regret your decision’.
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” which can 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”, with some options not appearing altogether.

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. 

“Hidden fees and hassle” are not what you want from your travel management software’s pricing plan. Hidden costs make it impossible for your finance team to forecast accurately.

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 a nightmare.

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.

Navan fall behind when it comes to making changes, with some users reporting they’ve had “issues changing flights” which consistently end in the TA support team telling them to “contact the airline”. Another customer even reports preferring to “book directly just for ease when cancellations and changes are needed”.
