3 reasons why you should meet Navan at this year's Business Travel Show Europe

Navan is consistently voted No. 1 for travel and expense management by users who love how it simplifies business trips, from booking to managing itineraries and expensing, and brings many benefits to thousands of companies, large and small, including the likes of Netflix, Heineken, and Thomson Reuters.

Here are three reasons why you should meet us at BTS Europe this year.

1. Industry-leading NDC platform

New Distribution Capability (NDC) is rapidly reshaping the business travel industry and it pays to be on board. Many airlines are increasingly prioritising direct or NDC channels, meaning a hefty chunk of fare options could be missing from your booking tool, and you could be overpaying.

Why NDC matters

NDC represents a potential overall savings opportunity of up to 12% depending on the airline, with some individual fares up to 60% cheaper than traditional GDS offerings.

How Navan approaches NDC

To make sure our customers get all the airline content they need at the right price, we moved fast to enable access to NDC content from 15 airlines — and more are on the way. These include British Airways, KLM, Air France, Lufthansa Group, United Airlines, American Airlines, Finnair, Qantas, Singapore Airlines, and Air Canada. Some of our customers are already saving hundreds of thousands of pounds thanks to our NDC offering.

2. Cost-saving opportunities

Navan is purpose-built to save companies money on business travel. Here’s how we do it:

Multi-provider strategy

Navan sources travel inventory from multiple GDSs, aggregators, and direct connections so your travellers get all the flight, hotel, train, and car options they’ll ever need for a business trip, at the right price, wherever a trip takes them.

Optimised for self-service and travellers on the road

We’ve created a product that’s purpose-built to make employees' lives easier and remove the usual frustrations that come with planning and managing travel. With Navan, travellers get a first-class experience; they can choose from our extensive travel options, easily change or cancel bookings in a few clicks, and access 24/7 support if ever needed.

Customers see happy travellers and exceptionally high platform adoption rates, meaning greater visibility, control, and cost savings.

Rewards for savings

With Navan Rewards, when your employees book cost-consciously, we give them money which they can use towards their next holiday. The generous rewards programme cuts your spend, boosts adoption, and is fully funded by Navan, so it doesn’t cost you a penny. And it works — Asana’s average nightly hotel rate is 23% less for people who book hotels with Navan Rewards incentives!

3. Innovative sustainability features

Navan’s extensive rail inventory

Navan gives companies access to one of the largest rail inventories in the world, with over 30 rail carriers in Europe alone, including UK Rail, Deutsche Bahn, Eurostar, and SNCF. All carriers are available for booking from any country. Not only can trains help you with your sustainability goals, but they can also save you an average of almost £120 per booking compared to flying.

Features for admins

The Navan platform is packed with features that help admins measure sustainability progress, from real-time data dashboards on CO2 emissions to comprehensive data and reporting capabilities that help companies track their emissions.

Features for travellers

When booking a flight, travellers see carbon emissions data for each option so they can make more environmentally conscious choices. The platform’s Rail Alternative Pop-up feature also proactively lets travellers know if there's a viable rail alternative during a flight search.
