Expedia.com is introducing a new business program as part of its reward program. The Expedia+ business program offers a $50 hotel coupon after 10 prepaid hotel nights and a free upgrade to the Silver+ status for all employees.
Silver+ status does not give you too many tangibles. You get 25% more Expedia rewards points and you may get a better treatment at some +VIP hotels. This is something very hard to profit from!
Expedia also strives to make it easier for employees to track expenses.
This isn't a bad offer for many small businesses. I'm surprised that major OTA's and most airlines are missing out on targeting small business with an easily-managed solution for employee travel.
