The first step in creating efficiency on your travel is to work with the one travel manager; from here your business can look at options to simplify and streamline your processes with online and offline solutions. The less time your employees spend on organizing travel the more time they’ll have to focus on your core business.
Dedicated, personal and flexible service: A dedicated travel manager will also work to a pre-determined service level agreement, which includes agreed-upon standards for services, priorities and responsibilities. In addition find out what your travel provider’s operating hours are and if they offer extended work hours for easy access to your own travel team. And finally, look for a travel manager that offers no fixed contracts to ensure your business is free to leave if you’re not happy with the quality of service.
Value add services: Does your travel manager have the global buying power and negotiating strength to provide you with special deals on a regular basis? Are you getting true value for money for your spend on travel? If you’re partnered with the right travel manager, you should have access to a world of special travel deals, discounts and offers across leisure and corporate travel.
