Now Boarding: All Rows and All Cabins From Upside Travel

The TripActions Team

Business Travel ManagementReturn to blog

As of August 23, 2021, Upside Travel, a startup corporate travel tool and segment partner to Flight Centre Group (FCM), is no longer serving clients. Those looking for an alternative to the Upside Travel solution will find everything they need and more in the TripActions platform, which offers additional features such as integrated spend management, powerful support, and scalability. And for those ready to make the switch, TripActions is here to help!

TripActions is a complete and full-stack corporate travel and spend management solution that offers everything Upside provided and more. Here’s a taste of what’s on offer:

A user-friendly booking and spend management experience

TripActions employs a user-forward approach to its entire experience, from booking to program administration to spend management. Thanks to the Next Generation Storefront, TripActions gives travel bookers a sophisticated booking experience that balances ease of use with a wide range of inventory sources.

That user-forward thinking doesn’t stop with the booking experience at TripActions. With TripActions Liquid™, finance leaders are able to quickly and easily set policy and manage corporate spend, issuing physical and virtual cards to employees and getting real-time visibility into trends.

Premium, tech-forward support

Cloud-enabled support that offers proactive assistance with the full context of the traveler’s booking is also a trademark of modern corporate travel management, and TripActions has been a leader in this space since the beginning. Paired with live agents around the world, the support offering at TripActions is above and beyond what modern competitors offer.

TripActions global support is available for no extra cost, 24/7/365, with local agents ready to put their local knowledge to use in booking and managing itineraries. Powered by TravelXen, a proprietary software platform, support agents at TripActions are able to handle tasks with any degree of complexity across email, phone, or chat—all without additional contact fees.

The addition of Reed & Mackay to the TripActions team further underscores the company’s commitment to service. With agents and offices around the world, Reed & Mackay provides an additional layer of premium service on top of the powerful technology already in place at TripActions.

TripActions for Small and Medium Businesses

For small to medium sized businesses looking for corporate travel and spend solutions, TripActions offers a powerful, comprehensive answer that can scale with each client’s needs.

TripActions Travel Edition currently provides robust, global corporate travel and management and features global inventory, in-house agents, simple implementation, and powerful reporting and policy tools.

TripActions Travel and Liquid Spend Edition is a unified corporate travel and spend management platform that provides the full suite of travel capabilities paired with powerful spend management tools.

Each solution offers transparent, user-based pricing that doesn’t nickel-and-dime for support, inventory, or all of the legacy trappings of corporate travel and spend.

What Customers are Saying

Already, nearly 800 customers have made the switch from outdated corporate travel and spend solutions to TripActions. Among the feedback:

Nearly 800 companies have left their previous TMCs to join TripActions. Here's why:

"I raised the flag saying, Hey, now might be the opportune time to make a change. Ultimately the rest of management agreed. Together, we reevaluated the program: our CFO, CEO, VP of operations and HR director...[TripActions is] an entire package."

“The pandemic has naturally re-centred duty of care as the core of travel programmes. I benchmarked peers, colleagues and stakeholders internally—very few were satisfied with their provider.”

"[TripActions is] an entire package. Right now, I've got to chase a bank or the TMC when issues arise, but TripActions has one number to call. I'll be giving HR access so they can monitor [the Covid-19 data] as well."
