Entrepreneur looks to replace corporate travel agents with app

The app would save hours of chasing individual people up for updated passport numbers and so on.

 

Auckland-based entrepreneur Hiten Parbhu has launched an online corporate travel booking app that makes finding and booking flights easier for small business owners, personal assistants and admin staff.

The online app Rogue Travel, which launched today after a few months of beta testing, will “take the pain out of corporate travel booking”, Parbhu said.

“The big travel amalgamators like Skyscanner make finding flights easy, but that’s about it. They give you lots of options, but then leave you on your own when it comes to the really tedious thing: entering passenger details.”

“Plus, they send you all over the web to various providers instead of keeping all your bookings in one central place.”

Rogue Travel, Parbhu said, does that and more.

The web app keeps an organisation’s passenger details, like names, date of birth, passport numbers, frequent flyer memberships and so on, on the one platform.

Users will simply search, just as they would on other travel websites, to find the cheapest and most convenient flights and hotels.

They then select on the who’s travelling tab and all passenger details are automatically added.

Parbhu said this app would save hours of chasing individual people up for updated passport numbers and so on.

Payment is made directly through the site and all trip details are kept through the one platform.

“We’ve built a tool which effectively removes the need for a corporate travel agent.”
