The Benefits of Travel Rewards Programs for Locum Tenens Physicians

As a locum tenens physician, you can enjoy traveling the country while you do what you do best: practice medicine. And while you’re working hard to help patients, Interim Physicians makes sure your travel rewards programs are working hard for you.

One of the perks of working with Interim Physicians is that the rewards points you earn for your air and lodging bookings while on assignment with us are yours to keep. Even though we handle all your travel plans to get you to and from your assignments, you get to keep the points.

Most doctors are pleasantly surprised when I tell them they get to keep all of their rewards points for their travel bookings, said Cathleen Cohen, a member of Interim Physicians’ travel team.

Simply provide your travel rewards account information to Interim Physicians’ dedicated travel team, and sit back while we handle all the details. Our seasoned travel team is the best in the business with a combined 45 years of experience.  Unlike other staffing companies, we don’t outsource our travel or charge any fees to issue travel. Our in-house travel staff uses an Airlines Reporting Corporation (ARC)-certified program for booking travel and all costs of using this program are paid for by Interim Physicians, not our physicians or facilities.

If you’re not already a member of a travel rewards program, signing up is easy. Below are links for the most popular airlines and hotels Interim Physicians’ travel team books for our locum tenens physicians:
