Wyndham Hotels & Resorts has expanded Wyndham Direct, a booking, billing and business solution, to help drive corporate business to its hotels.

This service, earlier unique to its La Quinta by Wyndham brand, has now become available immediately at Super 8 by Wyndham and Days Inn by Wyndham hotels in the US.

The hotel firm plans to expand this solution across its portfolio of brands later this year.

Wyndham Direct is intended to boost corporate bookings to hotels and ease travel management for companies and their travelers.

Furthermore, Wyndham Direct, by using integrated virtual credit card technology from Corporate Spending Innovations (CSI), offers easier booking, faster billing and smarter business, thereby supporting its hotels.

With the expansion across the Wyndham’s three largest brands, the programme now provides clients access to almost 3,900 hotels.

Wyndham senior vice president for global sales Carol Lynch said: “Wyndham is leaving no stone unturned when it comes to helping our hotels drive more direct bookings, save time and get paid faster.

“Wyndham Direct is a comprehensive solution for our hotels that not only eases the strain on hotel teams, but also makes the client’s experience easier and helps translate into revenues for our franchisees.”

CSI senior vice president for travel payment solutions Juliann Pless said: “CSI is excited to partner with Wyndham Hotels & Resorts to help power the Wyndham Direct Program and we look forward to providing an innovative, streamlined solution for Wyndham clients.”

Wyndham Hotels & Resorts is a leading hotel franchising company, with more than 9,000 hotels in around  90 countries.

It operates a portfolio of 20 hotel brands, including Super 8, Days Inn, Ramada, Microtel, and La Quinta. It also provides hotel management services.

The firm’s Wyndham Rewards loyalty programme enables 84 million enrolled members to redeem points at thousands of hotels, vacation club resorts and vacation rentals across the world.
