3 Steps to Improving Your Business Travel Program

Is your Travel Program caught in the past? Is it time to assess and improve your travel program? Strengthening corporate management control over business travel expenses is more important than ever.

There are 3 simple steps that you can take to improve your travel program. These steps could reduce travel spend by up to 20%; cut expense reporting time by up to 50%; and enable travellers to lower overall travel costs.

  1. Benchmark
    Set spending caps & guidelines. You will lower your cost per trip immediately by revising your travel policy to reflect spending caps. Each frequent destination should have a "trip model"- the airfare, hotel and/or car rental price and vendor that must be booked every time. With increased volume to specific vendors and cities, lower rates and better service can be negotiated.

     
  2. Policy Simplification & Procurement
    Travel needs to have a budget and a plan. It's an investment in your business. The UNIGLOBE service choice provides both self-service (Concur) and experienced agent service. There are no excuses for booking outside of your travel program. Travelers "must book" (not "should book") according to company policy to support company rates, duty of care, and your managed travel program.

     
  3. Process Automation
    It's important that data and travel costs are visible. An auto copy of each travel invoice increases control and keeps travelers in check. Our reporting system can auto deliver data reports to measure spend and provide raw data feeds for expense reconciliation. Streamlined back office procedures improve efficiency and cost control, and support your travel program.
