Why Use a Corporate Travel Agency?
Booking travel for your business can be time-consuming, and with so many fares, routes, and different carriers out there, it’s hard to know if you are getting the best deal when it comes to your employees’ travel itineraries.
Using a corporate travel agency can help you save time and money, in addition to offering you the following advantages:
Extensive Online Travel Resources
Corporate travel agencies have online systems that allow business travelers access to their complete itinerary, in addition to any extra information they may need on their destination. This information includes:
- Full itinerary details
- Flight tracking including delays
- Ability to print airline tickets
- Any airline fees that may be additional such as baggage fees or in-flight fees
- Travel warnings for your destination area
- Information on visas and identification needed to enter certain countries
- Currency conversion
- Directions to car rental, hotels, and destinations included in the travel itinerary
- Weather forecasts
- Discounts and offers
A corporate travel agent will have access to discounts when it comes to hotels, flights, and car rentals. Corporate travel agents work with a large load of clients and therefore establish relationships with certain travel brands.
Discounted prices are not the only advantage that comes from these relationships; other advantages include flight upgrades, free hotel breakfasts, room upgrades, and VIP check-in lines at rental car kiosks. These are just a few of the extra advantages you can receive when booking through a corporate travel agent!
Industry Knowledge and Access
Corporate travel agents have access to many travel resources and know how to find these resources quickly. This can give you the best information when it comes to flight paths, upgrade choices, lowest fares, and additional information that will make your employees’ business trips convenient and comfortable.
When you book directly with an airline or use an online service, it is likely you will get charged heavily for any changes you need to make. In the business world it is difficult to avoid schedule changes. When booking with a corporate travel agent, you’re more likely to be able to make travel changes without any extra charges.
When your employees are traveling, it is important that they know that they have a person they can contact with problems or emergencies arise. Having a corporate travel agent provides your employees with one main contact. They can then contact their travel agent for emergency support and know that their problem will be dealt with quickly and professionally. This can relieve stress on both the traveler and on your business.
