BCD Travel launches all-in-one digital self-service travel platform for small and midsize businesses
GetGoing combines the ease of digitally managing business travel with the comfort and security of personal expert service
UTRECHT, The Netherlands, July 12, 2023 – BCD Travel launched GetGoing, an all-in-one platform for small and midsize businesses to book, manage and optimize business travel in the U.S. GetGoing is designed for businesses looking for a digital self-service solution to manage all aspects of business travel, backed with the support from travel experts when needed.
GetGoing makes business travel hands-on for everyone in the company, from decision makers to office admins and travelers. The platform offers an easy-to-use business travel solution to manage business travel in one place: booking, policy automation, reporting, traveler safety, and expert support.
“With our launch of GetGoing, we offer the fast-growing small and midsize market a self-service solution backed up by a team of travel experts,” said David Mitchell, president of the BCD Travel Mid-Market division and executive lead of GetGoing in the U.S. “Furthermore, the pricing is fair and transparent: no implementation fees or hidden costs. Clients can pick one of our flexible pricing plans that works best for them and change it directly on the platform as their business travel needs evolve.”
With GetGoing, travel programs can be up and running within a matter of minutes. Travelers can easily book and manage trips from any device at any time, without any software installation. GetGoing uses BCD’s buying power to negotiate the best prices for clients. Our industry leading content and partnerships with suppliers worldwide gives our GetGoing clients a wide range of discount offers creating significant savings opportunities. GetGoing also saves clients time and money with its unused ticket tracking software which identifies residual values to be used for future bookings.
GetGoing’s platform enables companies to set up and automate travel policies, including flight, hotel, rental car and rail settings and automated pre-trip approval flows, so all bookings are automatically made within company policy.
The built-in reporting solution offers a dashboard with travel data highlights and key metrics. It includes detailed reports with real-time data by traveler, date, location and more, enabling companies to empower their team, save time and find new ways to save on their travel costs and make the most of their travel budget.
To help companies fulfill their duty of care and give their travelers peace of mind, the platform also has an integrated safety and security solution. It includes the latest travel risks and restrictions, a live traveler tracking map and GoSafe, an AI-powered flight sorting feature that prioritizes safer options like direct flights or flights with connections in lower-risk countries. Automated trip-approval flows help monitor all traveler bookings and prevent employees from traveling to high-risk destinations.
When support is needed, the helping hand of highly trained experts is just a call or click away. From travel and booking assistance to budget advice and 24/7 emergency support, the expert team is there to help travelers continue to their destination or get them back home safely to family and friends.
After a successful launch in Germany in 2022, GetGoing was offered as a pilot in the U.S. and is now available to all U.S. customers.
