TripHQ came about when our founders were travelling extensively in their previous occupations. Not having the support of a large corporate system, they noticed a huge waste of time before, during and after each business trip. They relied heavily on using leisure-focused booking sites and which are often, fragmented, unreliable, and then trying to incorporate individual bookings with travel itinerary apps and expense management sites, all taking up valuable time.
Headquartered in Singapore, and operating out of Malaysia’s industrial tech hub Penang, Malaysia; TripHQ was founded with the goal of reinventing planning and administration of business travel from the ground up, by the addressing and developing a unique solution tailored for the self-managed business traveller.
The result is a next-generation travel platform, to simplify business travel planning and administration. It combines user-friendly design, and world-class systems, to offer self-managed business travellers the most efficient and satisfying end-to-end experience without needing to spend a fortune.
TripHQ is a free to use, end-to-end digital travel platform, encompassing planning, booking, expense management and reports. With TripHQ, you not only simplify the entire process but remove the manual paperwork, making your journey smoother, safer and hassle-free.
Enjoy planning your flights, accommodation and full itinerary that can be easily shared and modified as needed with input from colleagues, friends and family. When you’re ready, just confirm your bookings with a single payment (by you or someone else) in the currency of your choice.
All your loyalty programs are automatically updated providing instant access to review your points and details, removing the hassle of remembering numbers or carrying physical cards while travelling. Simply click and show your digital card as needed.
Each trip is a paperless journey, with all booking confirmations available with QR and Bar codes. There’s no need to complete paperwork during check-in as all the details are securely accessible on your smartphone.
While on the go, your itinerary can be modified, and expenses easily captured. With just a snapshot, your receipts are seamlessly entered into the reporting system.
At any time, you can access current and past records for budgeting, planning and even create a duplicate trip to compare different schedules and costs.
