MCLEAN, Virginia—Hilton debuted Hilton for Business, a digital-forward travel program that empowers professionals running small and medium-sized businesses to simplify travel management.
The global program offers a set of tools to enhance the business travel booking and management experience and provide Hilton Honors benefits to business customers and their employees around the world.
Hilton for Business answers a growing need: Hilton data uncovered that 75 percent of small and medium-sized business customers book their business trips and manage their travel in-house, without outsourcing. Hilton’s 2024 Trends Report found that 80 percent of global travelers agree that it’s important to be able to book their entire trip online.
“At Hilton, we listen to the needs of our customers and then innovate to provide a superior hotel experience for every stay occasion. This includes our small and medium-sized business customers who have been looking for a travel platform—and loyalty benefits—that meets their unique set of needs and reduces friction points, from booking to billing,” said Chris Silcock, president, global brands and commercial services, Hilton. “We’re thrilled to officially launch Hilton for Business today as our strategic solution to enrich the business travel experience for these customers and their employees.”
Small- and medium-sized businesses that join Hilton for Business gain access to discounted rates across Hilton’s global portfolio both on the website and on the Hilton Honors app.
In addition to enabling any traveler at a company to easily book discounted rates, business owners have control and can delegate program management to any number of administrators. Adding employees is straightforward—the more employees are included in the program, the more benefits the company earns. Businesses can track their upcoming spending, review historical spending, and understand the benefits accumulating as they travel.
