Hold Now. Book Later

June 21, 2018

To make travel planning easier and more comfortable, UNIGLOBE Travel introduces a first-in-segment ‘PNR Hold’ feature for SpiceJet airlines. Available exclusively through its flagship Travel Management tool ‘Complete Access Online’, PNR Hold provides time starved business travelers much needed flexibility while planning their trips without incurring any additional charges.

Flying SpiceJet? Need more time to confirm your travel plans? Worry not! Now there’s another way to make booking your next business trip more convenient.

“Flexibility has always been an important consideration for travelers – whether traveling on business or leisure. Travelers often value that little bit of extra time to iron out those final details – be it organizing a hotel room with a specific view or waiting on friends, family or business associates to confirm their availability”, says a UNIGLOBE Expert.

While flying most Full Service Carriers, you can in-fact hold or reserve your PNR (Passenger Name Record), however the same does not apply to Low Cost Carriers such as IndiGo, GoAir, etc. With an aim to make travel less stressful and more productive, UNIGLOBE Travel is now the first TMC to build and make available a ‘Hold PNR’ feature for corporate bookings on SpiceJet.

“We are in the age of traveler centricity and this is one of the ways we are attending to the needs of the modern, extremely mobile and ever-so-busy traveler. Within the corporate sector, travel policies can often mandate usage on specific airlines – one of them being SpiceJet. The Hold PNR on SpiceJet provides an on-request, free-of-charge 6-hour hold on corporate bookings at the same flight rate, with an automatic cancellation. This certainly means more power to UNIGLOBE travelers”, adds a UNIGLOBE Expert.

Clearly there is a shift away from the command-and-control perspectives of the past. The focus now is more on the traveler and the productivity of each trip, so that travelers can have the greatest return on investment on each trip.  Progressive TMC’s like UNIGLOBE believe this starts from the ease and bookings on popular airlines like SpiceJet.
