Business focus at E Mids Trains

A new booking system designed specifically for small and medium-sized businesses has been unveiled by East Midlands Trains. The operator says it will help SMEs to speed up the searching and booking process through a dedicated online portal.

Businesses can set up individual profiles with a list of staff and travel policy limits. The team will receive a log-in and can make bookings that will be captured within the company’s profile and stored in one place.

The Derby-based rail operator says companies using the system can either link a corporate payment option to their profiles or allow employees to pay for tickets on their own cards. Travellers can also book tickets on other services outside the East Midlands network with no booking fees.

Head of sales Richard Clay said: “Our new Business Travel system makes it much easier for small and medium-sized businesses to travel for work. It’s like having a full travel agency at your fingertips but without the fees and costs which larger businesses pay.

“We’re absolutely committed to helping the East Midlands to grow and we believe this tool will help businesses to concentrate on running a thriving and successful business and spend less time booking their travel.”
