The lowdown on Taptrip, the traveltech startup that's making it easier to manage business travel...

taptrip logoTravel is expensive, and if your business is the type that has employees on the road a lot, the cost adds up. And so does the workload for the person who has to sit and sift through the receipts and bookings and keep everything running smoothly.

Any SME knows that the smallest amount of money that can be saved here and there could be key, so wouldn’t it be of great benefit to have some kind of free tool to help with all of this and save you money at the same time?

Manchester-based travel tech startup Taptrip has created that some kind of free tool for SMEs to search for and book travel, track employees, and record expenses all in one unified platform.

The platform allows centralised travel bookings for flights, trains, hotels, and taxis; synchronisation of availability and bookings with the traveller’s calendars; tracked costs and automated spend reports; expenses submission and approval in seconds; sophisticated traveller tracking, 24/7, to fulfil duty-of-care requirements. It is easy for the employee to use on the go to keep track of their expenses, keep everything updated, and request approvals.

taptrip screenTaptrip says that business travel is a place often overlooked when it comes to cutting costs and increasing efficiency. They say that, with their platform, you could save up to 30% on monthly travel costs.

Obviously, if your employees do a lot of travelling, these savings could add up to something pretty significant. And if not, every penny counts!

Set up by Neil Ruth (ex Skyscanner, Addison Lee, IHG), Thomas Young, CEO (ex and serial entrepreneur) and Jack Timblin, CTO (ex Sky Betting & Gaming), Taptrip has already won awards such as the Disrupt Award 2019 at the Business Travel Show, and Best UK Startup at the HNT Awards, and now the startup is one of nine selected companies for the Barclays 2019 Accelerator in New York, powered by Techstars. This 13-week intensive startup programme is designed to shape and scale the next generation of FinTech businesses. If only they had some kind of tool to keep down the cost of their trip out there...
