Lola Travel Company
We are currently in the process of planning our company wide retreat in which we need at least 69 people to book their flights. While with that many people traveling at once, I do suspect I'll get some questions and have to assist some folks however by using Lola.com, the time I would have spent prior will be cut drastically. And I'll be able to see who is taking what flight and obtain departure and arrival information without much interruption to anyone's day. Prior to Lola.com this task would have been something truly daunting, but not this time!

I was assigned to fly from Amsterdam to Silicon Valley as a young professional to present our idea to a huge international corporation. A budget for two nights' lodging and flights as specified in the invitation. I was 24, and this was my first trip to the West Coast, so I knew I wanted to stay longer than two days. I began looking for cheap hotels in order to fit five nights into the budget. I booked something cheap and was looking forward to my trip despite knowing nothing about San Francisco and having done no homework. I grabbed an Uber from the airport when I arrived. When I told the driver where I wanted to go: Tenderloin, he gave me an odd look. This makes Rockettrip less appropriate.

Cons
Lola Travel Company
  • Room for existing features to grow and expand, especially on the administrative side
  • Visually-speaking, the overall layout and color scheme used within the site, specifically when it comes to placement and contrast of key text info, has led to some confusion at times
  • Need for more support of existing travel rewards accounts

  • Receipts can be auto-uploaded. Sounds great on paper, but sometimes it can misread the numbers, and then you have to manually enter the data anyway. So that can definitely be improved with time.
  • Points that you earn can go to waste if you don’t earn enough of them in a certain amount of time.
  • If there's a change in travel plans, it can lead to a lot of hurdles.

This is just my guess as I'm not involved in the decision aside from providing feedback on using Lola. I think, from what I've heard, that everyone likes Lola and we'll renew the usage. I say this because we're an all-remote company and this greatly solves the logistics of booking flights for everyone.

Lola is simple and straight to the point in regards to usability. I didn't have to figure things out and felt that the interface was intuitive. I loved it.

Lola's customer support is fantastic. They have frequently contacted us when there are travel alerts, or anticipated flight cancellations to re-book us before it was too late. They are always helpful and pleasant and we have never had any issues.

Alternatives Considered
Lola Travel Company
Lola.com is much easier to use in terms of UX. Very little Admin and/or user training is needed to get up and running with Lola.com -- which increases our ability to quickly scale the solution. However, I would say that Concur is able to do more inside the travel arena with the addition of expense tracking.

Works Recipe scanning is simple. It allows you to easily track and manage your expenses. Automatic debit collection. Tax calculation and information are simple. Support for mobile applications. Expensify is a highly automated expense calculator that detects and computes all expenses stored in the system. There is no need to add a single transaction. It also allows you to edit data if you discover an incorrect transaction. Overall it was a great experience with Expensify but create glitches.
