Such a great idea, lots of my friends who work in big corporates go out for dinner just to use up their allowed expenses.

To add some context, my name's Charlie, and I work at Rocketrip. My colleagues and I love discovering cool products here on PH, and so I wanted to update Rocketrip's page to keep it up to date with what we've been working on. Rocketrip reduces a company's travel costs by incentivizing employees to spend less on their flights, hotels, trains, and rental cars. Here's how it works: 1. We produce custom budgets based on real-time market pricing data. 2. Business travelers book their trips, choosing how (and how much) they'd like to save. Our travelers do things like: • Fly coach instead of business class. • Find a great deal on airfare by using a budget airline, booking multiple one-leg tickets, or choosing a flight with a layover or early departure. • Take a train or bus instead of flying. • Stay in a lower star class hotel. • Book an Airbnb instead of a hotel. • Avoid hotel costs all together by crashing with a friend. 3. The employee gets to keep half of what they save to redeem for cash and gift cards. On average, our users take home over $100 per trip, and save their companies around 30% on travel expenses. We like to think of it as a win-win: half cost control, half employee perk. Thanks for checking us out! Love to know what you all think.
