So what’s the best corporate travel solution for you? The advent of the Internet has undoubtedly made international travel much more accessible. These days we’re all travel agents when it comes to booking our own personal holidays. Most of us are comfortable negotiating airline comparison sites to find the cheapest flights, or booking an Airbnb apartment in a place we have never visited. Sometimes though it can feel that the huge amount of choice which the internet brings into our homes is overwhelming. How will we know that we got the best possible fare? Will we find out that the brand new hotel offering bargain rates is actually still a building site?
For leisure travel the planning may all be part of the fun, but for corporate travel the stakes are much higher. At the same time, the boundaries between corporate and leisure travel have become blurred. Low-cost airlines such as Easyjet have now become the first choice of many business travellers and some are also preferring to book apartments for their business trips rather than more traditional business hotels. It almost certainly is not a good idea to leave all of these choices to your employees, nor for them to be spending company time booking their own business travel arrangements, but what are the alternatives? How can you work out what’s the best corporate travel solution for you?
The first step is to put in place a corporate travel policy. In order to do this you will need to answer some simple questions:
- How many of your employees are likely to be taking business trips?
- Where will their international corporate travel take them?
- How often will they take business trips abroad?
- What is your budget for business travel?
Taking some time to consider these questions, will undoubtedly save your business time and money later on. Careful planning is by far the best way to make sure that your business is not overwhelmed by the amount of choice and that you find the best solution to save time and money on your international corporate travel.
