How we can help your travel programme
Expert Travel Consultants
Having travel experts on hand, who understand the typical travel requirements of financial services companies means you’ll get accurate and timely support, saving you time and money. Even better, having a dedicated Consultant will be an extension to your business - like a designated travel PA. In knowing how your company works and your key travel routes, they’ll be able to anticipate exactly what you need and deliver on the expectations of different groups of travellers - some individuals may require a higher level of support and consultation, whilst others know exactly what they want. Alongside reservations, they’ll provide advice and insight into entry requirements, coordinate changes and support you with your online self-booking tool.
Proactive programme management
To get the best value from your travel programme, we’ll team you up with one of our Account Managers who is experienced working with clients in the financial services sector. They’ll offer insight into your travel programme trends and introduce ways of making your travel processes as streamlined and cost-effective as possible, without sacrificing service.
To control your travel spend and maximise savings, we’ll work out the perfect balance of reducing spend while not affecting the traveller experience. With our global reach and longstanding supplier relationships, you’ll get the best quotes across flights, hotels and ground transportation with our exclusive negotiated fares. On top of our these, our preferred partners also offer our clients special perks to give your traveller’s the best possible experience - these perks vary from free lounge passes, flight and room upgrades and early check-in.
The best approach to travel management is led by accurate data. We’ll give you a detailed picture of your travel programme by capturing all the data you need, beyond just travel spend, and use it to provide you with valuable pre-trip and post-trip insight and analysis. In understanding your travel data, we’ll be able to identify unnecessary spend, negotiate better deals exclusively for your company and save you time managing your programme.
Duty of care
24/7 global support
Having 24/7 support gives travellers and travel managers peace of mind. If there’s a last-minute change or something affecting a business trip, your travellers will always know they can turn to us for support, regardless of where they are in the world or the time of day
Our crisis management team continuously monitor global alerts - from strikes to volcanic eruptions. They work with our suppliers and people on the ground to get a detailed picture of the situation. Together, they determine an action plan, so our Consultants know the best way to effectively assist affected travellers. Regardless of where your travellers are, or the time of day, we’ll be there to check they are ok, minimise distress and quickly get them to safety.
A key element of duty of care is keeping travellers informed before and during their trip. Real-time email travel alerts and mobile app notifications will let you and your travellers know if there are disruptions to their journey or anything that could put their safety at risk. Also, with access to our traveller tracking and risk maps, should you want to get in touch with your travellers, you’ll be able to check up on where they are, or where they’re next planning to be.
To make sure you have a robust duty of care programme, your Account Manager will work with you to regularly review your travel policy and booking procedures, checking they reflect any changes in your requirements and industry best practices.
Our finance clients are constantly innovating to make things faster, more efficient and less expensive - and so are we! Right through from the initial booking to post-trip reporting, we make sure everyone has everything they need at their fingertips, whether on their laptop or mobile.
Our traveller centric mobile app Sam :] engages with travellers from door to door, helping them to prepare for their journey and keeping them updated throughout their journey. Sam :] reduces stress by ensuring travellers know exactly where they need to be, so they get there safely.
