“There are locations where we don’t have enough consolidated hotel volume
to negotiate a Starbucks corporate rate. Giving travelers access to both the Egencia and Expedia hotel rates in those markets is extremely important to our bottom line.” 

— Jonathan Davidson
Travel & Meetings Operations Manager

“We give partners options. They’re able to find their comfort zone within a menu of travel options that we provide to them.

“Egencia has a seat at the table whenever we make travel decisions.”

— Raymond Williams

“One of the primary reasons we direct our partners to book with Egencia is to be able to monitor their location so that we can quickly contact or assist them, if needed. Egencia’s online reporting – 24/7 – is tremendously helpful in those situations.”
