Leading travel portal Cleartrip has launched ‘Cleartrip for Work’, a travel product for MSMEs with a GST number, enabling their employees to access unlimited corporate fares on flights with benefits like complimentary in-flight meals, no trip modification charges and reduced cancellation fee and seat selection fee. MSMEs will need to simply sign-in with their GST number for this product that will cover flights and hotels for domestic and international travel. The portal says it has worked with all major airlines and hotels to unlock benefits that were previously accessible only to organisations affiliated with corporate travel programmes, directly to the traveller.
Cleartrip senior VP Balu Ramachandran said: “Cleartrip has partnered with all major airlines and hotels in India to transform travel for work by enabling access to special fares directly to the traveller. Typically, such fares are accessible only when the organisation signs-up for Cleartrip’s business offering but ‘Cleartrip for Work’ is accessible for individual travellers, as well as for travel admins who have the ability to add multiple travellers to the account through a simple self sign-in process.” “In addition to corporate fare benefits, Cleartrip is offering a 4% cashback on flights and 10% on hotels bookings. These cashbacks can be accumulated and used for booking personal vacations later,” Cleartrip said in a statement.
Cleartrip founder and CEO Stuart Crighton said: “Cleartrip’s relentless focus on making travel simple is now extending into the millions of underserved corporate customers throughout the region. ‘Cleartrip for Work’ introduces high levels of innovation and strong features present in our consumer product to corporate and SME customers. Along with this customers will also have access to corporate fares with special inclusions, and GST invoices for input tax credits and reimbursement.” Travelers booking on the platform will need to complete a short registration process and input their GSTIN to access work fares. Once signed in, users can search their desired destination and find both retail fare and corporate fare options available on the page with the specific benefits applicable.
