Navan Rewards: 3 ways to earn, 1 travel platform - Final

Navan, the pioneer in incentivizing employee travel behavior, is once again redefining the rewards game. Starting today, travelers can earn Navan Rewards not only for business but also for personal travel, unlocking a new era of unparalleled perks.

Navan travelers can now stack rewards earned for business hotels, personal hotels, and their favorite third-party loyalty programs — all in one platform.

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, work-life balance continues to be top of mind, travel demand is booming, and companies are looking for ways to recruit and retain employees. A recent Navan + Skift survey found that 81% of business travelers want their companies to give them a financial kickback if they save the company money — a policy only 67% of companies have in place. 

Meanwhile, blended or bleisure travel bookings have accelerated, with a 76% year-over-year jump in leisure travel extensions made via Navan. According to the Skift + Navan survey, 68% of business travelers plan to add personal days to a business trip, and 58% of managers actively encourage them to do just that.

All of these factors have paved the way for leisure travel incentives to emerge as the ultimate employee incentive, and companies that use Navan can leverage the platform as a work perk.

As before, Navan fully funds 100% of rewards. There’s no cost to our customers.
