eVoucher is a B2B payment service solution offered by Travel Clearing. The payment process is fully automated and paperless and thus the billing process of the hotel as well as the travel agency is simplified and the traveller does not have to handle their receipts manually. This saves significant management costs for travel agents, service providers and passengers each year.
Primehotels currently operates five unique and different hotels in Finland and in addition, several new hotel projects are under construction. Primehotels’ best-known hotel is the prison hotel, Hotel Katajanokka, which became Finland’s first Marriott hotel in November 2018. The Primehotels hotel family also includes Hotel Rantapuisto in Helsinki, Hotel Sveitsi in Hyvinkää, Hotel Oscar in Varkaus and Spahotel Casino in Savonlinna. Primehotels is not a hotel chain, but a chain of unique hotels united by the same goal; to become known for the best service in Finland. All Primehotels properties are Green Key certified and the green values are fundamental in the entire Primehotels DNA.
In the future, Primehotels Business Travel customers will be able to localize their hotel purchases directly on their travel account. The traditional billing process where a travel agency manages large amounts of hotel bills can be overlooked because eVoucher allows hotel expenses to be debited directly from the customer’s travel account.
“As an agile and flexible hotel operator, we at Primehotels are very pleased to be able to add eVoucher to our range of payment methods,” smiles Timo Hakala, Primehotels Sales Director.
For customers of travel agencies, payment through a travel account means that payment is centralized and automated. The passenger does not need to use a credit card and therefore there is no need to collect receipts and enter them manually into the travel invoice system. This is possible because the Travel Account transaction contains complete and error-free information on cost allocation as well as the actual VAT rate.
“Today, time is money and our task is to increase benefits and customer benefits for our customers also in the form of new payment solutions,” Hakala sums up.
With eVoucher, all traditional receipts disappear – but in a good way.
All travel expenses are automatically linked to the required clearing and accounting information already at the time of booking the trips. This information just goes through the entire company system and directly into the accounts. Say goodbye to the hunt for lost receipts.
We believe that more and more hotel chains will follow suit as we realize how much time and money will be saved by quick check-out, reduced management and better cash flow.
