Modern hotel programs call for modern approaches

With Stay by BCD Travel®, we’re shattering traditional approaches to driving hotel savings. See what innovative ways we offer to drive hotel savings with sophisticated spend management and traveler engagement tactics.

The hotel industry is changing, but goals remain the same for travel and procurement managers – and savings and duty of care are at the top of the list.

Here’s the thing: you can’t find many new savings when you’re using the same old techniques. And at the end of the day, you can’t ensure duty of care if travelers don’t use your hotel program. It’s more important than ever to make your booking channels intuitive, and provide travelers a way to assess the cleanliness and safety protocols at their hotel and in their destination.

It’s time for fresh, modern approaches. Are you ready for a new way to generate hotel savings? Keep on reading or get in touch with us.

Savings that go beyond sourcing

Historically, sourcing has been considered the key to a successful hotel program. But these days you’re up against smarter suppliers with increasingly sophisticated data. It’s time for new, sophisticated strategies proven to drive more value with less effort. Stay by BCD Travel makes the difference through our Global Hotel Program, spend management tactics, Dynamic Performance Management and smarter analytics.

BCD Great Rates Hotel Program

BCD Travel’s Great Rates offers a wide range of choices, savings, and security. Bolster your own preferred program and take advantage of the discounts that BCD has negotiated with our hotel partners. Beyond rates, BCD Great Rates properties drive additional savings with amenities – including, breakfast (48%), parking (50%), internet (96%), fitness center (67%), and a cancellation policy of 72 hours or less (99%). At this moment, BCD Great Rates includes over 50,000 properties across 185 countries and 6 continents and we’re consistently growing and expanding throughout the year.

Innovative spend management tactics

By shifting the focus to rate availability management, consumer merchandising and rate targets, we deliver bigger savings than just sourcing.

Less effort for a more proactive program

Dynamic Performance Management (DPM) leads to a continuously-improving program throughout the year with incremental savings that add up higher than traditional approaches.

Smarter analytics for better rates and returns

We bring together multiple data sources into easy-to-use dashboards, giving our program managers and consultants a more holistic picture of your spend married with supplier and market information. That levels the playing field between you and your suppliers.

Client Success

A market leader in medical technology adopted a dynamic program with rate targets and was able to reduce their number of program markets with 55% and increase incremental savings in non-program markets 4.9%, while the program markets saved 2%.

Client Success

A global consumer goods company increased adoption of TripSource®, our total trip management platform, by 770% through BCD Travel’s Traveler Engagement services, including traveler email campaigns, stakeholder newsletters, digital signage, and infographics.

Boost program adoption

Even the “perfect” hotel program design can’t deliver incremental savings if travelers don’t use it. We drive adoption, build consumer confidence, influence buying decisions and turn your travelers into loyal advocates for your hotel program. That translates to savings.

Build awareness
and satisfaction

We use consumer digital marketing approaches in a corporate setting to bring travelers in and influence their buying decisions.

Inspire consumer

Broad content and integrated price monitoring boost traveler trust that your program provides better options and value than what they’d find anywhere else.

Offer a seamless
digital experience

Our technology spans shopping and booking, purchasing guidance, smart communications and self-service in a single, simple experience for you and your travelers.
