For many companies, corporate travel arrangements are made either by someone’s personal assistant, a dedicated travel manager or even by appointing someone in the office to search online for the best deal.
Managing corporate travel is no small task, because travel is often one of a business’s largest expense, and it’s fraught with paper trails, records, and fluctuating travel options and prices. That’s why companies of all shapes and sizes are utilizing corporate travel services to handle the ins and outs of business travel arrangements.
Here are three key reasons why more companies are turning to corporate travel services:
Corporate Travel Agencies Get You the Best Deal for Your Business
Corporate travel agencies have extensive knowledge of the travel industry. This means they know how to get you the best available prices for your business needs. Corporate travel agencies know how seasonal fluctuations affect ticket pricing, the different route options to get you to your destination, and where to look for the best discounts.
Corporate travel agents are uniquely positioned to use their industry partnerships to secure corporate discounts, attractive rates, and feature benefits, such as complimentary upgrades.
Negotiated Corporate Rates for Business Travel
When traveling for business, it’s important to keep budgets as low as possible. Corporate travel agents are experienced at working closing with airlines to negotiate the best possible agreements. They have access to data analytics to help identify the best discounts, and can customized travel plans to your company’s unique travel profile. Their buying power saves your company time and money, allowing you to conserve budget dollars and focus on your business.
Technology Saves Business Travelers Time and Money
