Roomex makes everything really simple. It provides organisations like yours with a fast, simple, and free online business hotel booking, management and payment solution. Compared to corporate travel agents or travel management companies:
Most existing hotel booking sites are designed to cater for the leisure market and don’t provide the level of service, visibility and reporting needed by business. It can be difficult, and time consuming to find the right hotels, in the right location at the right price – so we give you access to everything in one place.
Roomex has all the advantages of working directly with hotels, but with many added advantages including much wider choice.

That’s it- Tap to pay
Roomex consolidates all your company’s hotel booking expenses in a single monthly payment. You receive a single invoice matching internal cost codes and you get a month’s free credit. This means you no longer need to waste time reconciling multiple payments with company credit cards, expenses and hotel invoices.
Most of our corporate clients choose to pay Roomex based on one consolidated monthly bill, with a single line of credit, covering all their Roomex business hotel bookings.
Once you have established a line of credit with us, any hotel room booked on the site is prepaid by Roomex, and included in your monthly invoice.
We can also accommodate other billing and payment options, such as credit card – Diners Club or Airplus, for example. Regardless of payment method, you will still have full visibility of your company’s business hotel costs, and receive a monthly, itemised account of all your bookings and expenditure.
Yes, you can. Many of our clients have negotiated preferential corporate rates with their favourite hotel chains. These rates are loaded into the Roomex system on set-up, and are available to book on the Roomex portal.
Importantly, with Roomex these clients can also take advantage of better market rates when they are available. And our reporting capability means you can quickly analyse when and where you are getting the best hotel rates, providing insight for future negotiations with hotels.
With so many hotel booking engines out there (many of which aren’t intended for businesses), finding the best rates can be confusing.
Roomex searches many sources to get you the best available rate. Our pricing includes direct from hotels, online booking engines, and many other sources such as hotel room wholesalers.
Moreover, Roomex checks what you ultimately pay against the hotel’s own rate for the night in question, to let you know exactly how much you have saved by using Roomex. Our clients typically achieve savings from 12 to 21 per cent over the long term.
Last year, our corporate clients saved between 12 and 21 per cent on their hotel bookings. We pride ourselves on sourcing the best rates at nearly 1 million hotels worldwide.
We can book your hotels based on your own negotiated rates, or search multiple sources to find even better prices for your company. Our sources include:
We price-check every single booking, comparing the rate you paid on Roomex to the hotel’s own rate. This means we measure exactly how much you save on each booking, and provide live benchmarking against your negotiated rates.
With Roomex you have full real-time visibility over spend by any criterion you care to mention: cost centre, department, project, geography, supplier, average cost per hotel night and much more.
We know that senior management needs to have full visibility and control over spend. We love data and we bring it right to the surface for you in our dashboard of easy to consume reports. All this information, including spend, savings and performance against negotiated rates, is available in live reports, which can also be broken down by hotel, division, cost centre, etc.
We have all the data, so no matter which way you would like to consume it, we can provide it.
Roomex is the simple, effective and free hotel booking platform for business. It’s essential software for any business with a travelling workforce.
Roomex allows any business access to a simple, secure platform, which opens up the hotel booking process to all employees, and delivers live reporting, significant cost savings and single billing.
With over 98% self-fulfillment, Roomex automates and simplifies the hotel booking process for your business.
Roomex helps save time for nearly everyone in your business when it comes to managing hotel bookings, including:
Roomex provides a single, customised, secure booking platform, which dramatically simplifies and speeds up the process of finding and booking the right hotels for your business. You won’t need to spend any more time negotiating different rates with different hotels; we look after all of that. Payments don’t have to be reconciled from company credit cards, expenses or hotel invoices – you only ever have one Roomex bill, already broken down by cost code!
That all adds up to a lot of time you can get back with the Roomex time saving advantage:
No. Most of our corporate clients receive one monthly bill, with a single line of credit, for all their Roomex business hotel bookings. Others prefer to pay by credit card, such as Diners Club or Airplus, at the time of booking.
This means the hotel accommodation is pre-paid, either by Roomex or by credit card. There is no need for the traveller to pay for his or her accommodation at the location. Moreover, because Roomex handles payment and invoicing, we cut out the need for employee hotel expense claims – eliminating a major administrative headache for you and your company.
In recent years we have seen significant disruption in the business travel sector. Travel management companies used to be charge high fees for questionable service, but now there are many more options.
Roomex focuses on making it easier, more efficient, and cost effective for businesses of any size to manage their own hotel booking.
With Roomex, you and your company benefit from greater access to the world’s hotels, a streamlined booking process, clarity on every aspect of your hotel booking process, and a positive impact on the business, both financially and culturally.
Roomex offers business users so much more than hotel booking sites aimed at the leisure traveler.
Firstly, our clients have access to many more hotel rooms, set aside for the business traveler, that are not available on other sites.
In addition, there are all the other advantages of having your single, secure Roomex portal for all your hotel booking, management and payment. With Roomex you get:
In case of emergency, Roomex provides a special report that enables authorised personnel to quickly find out where staff members are staying around the world. Who's in Paris, London, New York, or Cape Town?
Once a staff member books into a hotel on your Roomex portal, the system records where they are staying and how to contact them. Staff hotel locations can be instantly displayed on the Duty of Care interactive map, so you can pinpoint anyone, at any location in the world, in seconds.
We know that Senior Management need to have full visibility and control over spend. We love data and we bring it right to the surface for you, in easy to consume dashboard reports.
All information, including spend, savings and performance against negotiated rates, is stored under our live reports which can also be broken down by hotel, division, cost centre, etc. We have all the data, so no matter which way you would like to consume it, we provide it. Again, your Account Manager will liaise with you to ensure you have the data you need, and how you need it.
Finding and booking the right hotel will be straightforward for anyone familiar with leisure hotel booking platforms.
You can search by typing a location, or hotel name, into the search box, and selecting check-in and check-out dates. Roomex is integrated with Google Maps, which enables very granular location-based searching. You are able to search by city or town but also by street name, landmark, train station or even postcode.
Results can be filtered by star ratings, distance, price, and by meal type such as bed and breakfast, or even rates that include dinner. To speed up the process, you can also find your most used hotels and locations in the “Recently Booked Hotels” section.
Once you have found the right hotel at the right price, select the room type option and rate for the stay, enter the guest details and financial reporting codes if applicable, tick the appropriate payment option, and select Make Booking.
The booking is complete, and the details stored in your Roomex portal under My Account/Bookings. New bookings are also added to your easily accessible Recently Booked list.
If the hotel’s terms and conditions allow for cancellation or amendment, there are two simple ways to change or cancel your booking with Roomex.
Remember to always check cancellation terms before you book, and before you cancel or amend a booking.
You can usually book up to eight rooms in most hotels directly through the Roomex platform. If your group booking is for more than eight people, please contact our priority support team who will be happy to help organise your booking.
Yes, Roomex enables authorised personnel to book hotels for any member of your company workforce, contactors, suppliers, or customers as appropriate. Just remember to include the traveller’s email address when filling in their booking details, to ensure Roomex sends them a confirmation email.
You can contact our Support Team via email or phone. Support is available from Monday – Friday from 8:30 am GMT – 6 pm GMT

Roomex provides a wide selection of standard reports in its reporting dashboard for system administrators. These include commonly used reports such as the hotel report, user report and passenger report. Other frequently used reports include the charge code and cost centre reports, as well as spend, savings and analysis of performance against negotiated rates.
Because your Roomex instance has all the booking, usage and cost data about your workforce hotel stays, we can create bespoke reports to analyse performance against specific organisation goals, cost centres, divisions, customers or projects.
As you build up your company bookings, the reports function will really come into its own, adding value in terms of validating savings, and providing analysis to help you to gain control over all your workforce hotel bookings.
Administrators can access the Reports dashboard in their Roomex portal by clicking on My Account in the top right corner of any screen, and selecting Reports from the drop down menu.
All employers must do whatever is reasonably practicable to protect the health, safety, and welfare of their employees. For employers with a mobile workforce achieving this has additional challenges, not least of which is knowing where your employees are located on any given day.
Through our easy to use Duty of Care interactive map, you can pinpoint all travelling staff, at any location in the world in seconds.
