Making Corporate Travel Arrangements

Making Corporate Travel Arrangements

May 29, 2024 | BY webadmin

Business travel can be an excellent chance to explore new countries and cultures as well as connect with a wider network, and close sales. It can be costly and difficult to manage. Companies of all sizes may be faced with the challenge of balancing cost-effectiveness, employee satisfaction and policies with compliance.

Travel arrangements are made by a variety of parties: travel management and agents and online booking systems and employees who travel for business. Each of them has a role and responsibilities in the process.

A travel manager typically manages the entire corporate travel program and relationships with travel suppliers, like airlines and hotels. They can negotiate discounted rates and contract rates that are not accessible to individual travelers. They can also make use of the global distribution system (GDS) which enables them to search for hotel and flight options for their employees. This can save time and frustration because they don’t need to contact each supplier separately.

For large events and meetings the travel team can find locations to ensure they’re appropriate for the the expected audience and the logistics of the meeting. They can also arrange for hotels, restaurants and convention centers to host the event.

Many companies have a dedicated team of software developers or technology experts who develop and maintain the company’s travel booking system and other applications that track expenses, convert currencies, or provide navigation. These can be helpful to employees who are always on the move and assist them in staying on top of their expense reporting, and keep them informed of important updates and changes in the workplace.
