The Hotel Network, one of Australia’s leading accommodation management companies, has expanded its distribution reach and launched a new travel booking portal designed for sole traders, entrepreneurs and small to medium sized businesses.
THN Connect features an easy to use travel management dashboard which enables users to track their travel and download reports for expense reconciliation and ATO compliance while offering access to corporate rates and benefits at thousands of properties around Australia.
“We see a big opportunity in the SME sector, the largest employer of Australian workers,” says THN Managing Director Nick Brooke.
“These businesses often aren’t large enough or have the travel volume to secure corporate rates and benefits at hotels around the country.
“THN Connect solves that pricing issue for SMEs while enabling them to track and manage their accommodation bookings.”

- Easy to join – the primary requirement is an Australian Business Number – and can be used by individual travellers or company administrators managing travel for their team.
- Offers users access to corporate rates and benefits at thousands of properties around Australia and allows users to track their travel and download reports for expense reconciliation and ATO compliance.
