As people return to the workplace throughout the UK, West Midlands Railway has announced the launch of a new free online service that will support and streamline companies booking train journeys.
‘Just Business’ is the new facility and is aimed at supporting business travellers using rail services for their work. The online service will make the booking process easier and enable customers to discover the cheapest fares for journeys on the UK network.
Companies using the facility will get a specific login for each employee, enabling them to search, book and buy tickets using the ‘Just Business’ online service. Businesses can also set particular rules and preferences which will dictate the kind of tickets members of staff can gain permission to book, this will also include spending limits.
If a company’s employees all use the same platform for train travel expenses, it will help managers keep control of expenditure for rail journeys. ‘Just Business; will also give practical information along with efficient reporting tools, which will also give companies the chance to monitor the sustainability of their travel.
Another benefit of ‘Just Business’ is that business travellers purchasing tickets through the platform can also avoid booking fees, which are sometimes added by train ticket comparison websites.

Tim Bullock, sales and partnerships manager at West Midlands Railway, said: “From misplaced receipts and credit cards to scouring the internet for the best deals, booking train travel in the workplace can be unnecessarily timely and costly.
“For employees, Just Business instantly shows the cheapest fares across all operators as well as featuring a handy payment system which removes the need to process expenses and spend your own money.
“For businesses, this service is free, quick and simple to set up and has a dedicated helpline for additional support. It centralises and monitors all rail travel expenditure in one place with bespoke travel preferences and policies – ultimately saving valuable time and money.”
