East Midlands Trains Business Travel has been designed specifically for SMEs. This online portal allows employees to easily book their own travel within the guidelines set by the business itself. The online system allows employees to set up profiles, book direct, and pay using their own card, or a single corporate payment card. The system is not restricted to East Midlands Trains services but can also book tickets for travel across the country.

Richard Clay, head of sales at East Midlands Trains, said: “Our new Business Travel system makes it much easier for small and medium sized businesses to travel for work. It’s like having a full travel agency at your fingertips but without the fees and costs which much larger businesses will pay. We’re absolutely committed to helping the East Midlands grow and we believe this tool will help businesses to concentrate on running a thriving and successful business and spend less time booking their travel.”
