While many corporations have ways to control their travel costs – including online booking tools, an implemented travel policy, working with a travel management company, etc. – there are still those seasoned travelers who venture out into the realm of travel sites to book their business travel. Who can blame them if they are finding lower airfares than they receive booking through their company’s travel guidelines? The key word in this scenario is ‘if’ and that is why I believe conducting an internet comparison is a good thing. By comparing your booked itineraries with various travel websites that you select, this study can either put any rumors to rest regarding finding lower fares on the internet and let you feel confident in your current travel environment, or it can assist you in re-evaluating your corporate travel program and investigating if any changes need to be made.
In addition, we can work with different travel websites around the globe…you could even select different websites for comparison purposes for each country that you would like an internet study conducted for. The possibilities are endless and the results could enable you to focus on other aspects of your corporate travel program that need reviewing. Please feel free to contact me for additional information regarding our internet comparisons – your travel program can only be as good as the people you have working for you and the technology you have implemented!
