Travel policy from the company’s point of view and is from the travelers’ point of view are disconnected. YYZ Corporate decided to wade through the details of that multivalued question and give the results to our readers.
The Global Business Travel Association has undertaken a study concerning the hotel service provided to the corporate clients. The results showed that business travelers have to obey the company’s travel policy, which has a great influence on a traveler’s decision making. Sometimes a determination is made regardless of the key traveler’s factors such as convenience, cost, flexibility, and loyalty programs.
Does that mean that employers and employees are not always at the same side of that question? According to a new research, which holds about 500 corporate travelers from North America and Europe, the opinions on the question of corporate travel planning are not always the same.
"About 500 corporate travelers from North America and Europe have a different opinion of corporate travel planning"
Interesting results show the surveys, which result half of travel pros admitting to hold meetings with employees before the trip comparing with about 20 percent of travelers agreed. Almost all the travelers confirm that they book trips and flights via booking channels, and only about 60% employers agreed to this statement. The situation with the transport remains the same: about 80 % of employers agreed that the travelers used approved transport, compared with just 57% of travelers said that was the case.
The survey also showed that 12% of the travelers said their employer did not allow ride sharing options. But the another number was shown in 2015, when survey estimated 24 percent of travel managers confirmed their company did not allow ride sharing.
Also it’s important to mention 17 percent of business travelers which estimated to have additional information on themes of insurance or assistance services before making a trip to a high-risk areas. The report notes that more travel managers may be communicating that information, but their efforts are useless if travelers don’t hear, understand, or remember.
