Corporate Travel Management launches Lightning Lite – premium travel management services for SMEs

21 February 2018
  • Maximises ROI with three tailored packages customised to travel spend
  • Includes unlimited access to CTM’s proprietary online booking tool, Lightning
  • Keeps business travel simple, manageable and low cost


Corporate Travel Management (CTM) is revolutionising the way small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Europe manage travel with the launch of Lightning Lite at the Business Travel Show (stand B620). Lightning Lite is a premium service package designed to keep business travel simple, manageable and low cost for companies who spend up to £750k per year on travel.

SME’s using Lightning Lite can opt for one of three tailored packages – Silver, Gold and Platinum – designed to let them choose exactly the right level of service for their business based on the number of travellers and trips they manage. Each package includes unlimited access to CTM’s proprietary online booking tool, Lightning, the most intuitive, easy to use tool in the market. Developed around the specific needs of CTM’s clients, Lightning allows users to make flight, hotel, rail and car hire bookings quickly and simply.

Adopting the three-tiered approach not only maximises ROI for an SME’s travel spend, it is also scalable and will grow with them as their business grows and travel needs evolve. By encouraging travellers to book online, Lightning Lite drives compliance giving the SME greater visibility of their travel programme. Additional tracking capability options help to keep travellers safer and fulfil the company’s duty of care obligations.

“CTM’s unique blend of customer service and innovative technology drives exceptional value for all our clients, whatever their travel spend,” said Shelley Mathews, VP Sales Europe.

“This is why Lightning Lite is so revolutionary for the SME market: it gives companies with a travel spend of below £750k access to all the premium technology and services normally associated with a large travel management programme, plus they can customise their package so they only pay for the elements they actually need.

“By joining CTM, SME businesses can take advantage of our global buying power to access greater content, better fares and our lowest fare guarantee to make the most of their budgets and maximise travel spend ROI. Plus, a designated team will be on hand 24/7 to help them develop and refine the performance of their programme. All in all, Lightning Lite is just an incredibly simple – and effective – way for SMEs to manage travel.”

SMEs are encouraged to speak to one of CTM’s Lightning Lite specialists for an obligation-free consultation on their current travel programme and see how Lightning Lite can bring added value. Alternatively, they are invited to meet and chat to the CTM team at Business Travel Show, where they are exhibiting on Stand B620. The event takes place 21- 22 February 2018, at Olympia London.
