Do you question if your business would benefit from the services of a professional travel management company? Here are 7 reasons to bring a Corporate Traveller business travel on board.

1. Dedicated personal service

At Corporate Traveller we believe in a far more personal approach to business travel. This means you can focus on your core business and forget the hassles of business travel planning.

There are no call centres and no one-size-fits-all approach.

Dedicated personal service means your business will be appointed its own travel manager who will make it a priority to understand your business and travel patterns to deliver the most efficient and cost effective options every time.

Corporate Traveller has a unique incentive model wherein each travel manager runs their own business with total ownership and accountability. This leads to more motivated people, eager to ensure that you, the client, are completely satisfied.

2. Proven cost savings

Any professional travel management company should be able to demonstrate a cost savings on your current travel spend. Not by reducing your actual travel but by finding more cost effective ways to do it. At Corporate Traveller we deliver an average savings of between 5% and 25% on our customers’ annual business travel.

Corporate Traveller is backed by the global negotiating strength of the Flight Centre Travel Group. This means that no matter the size of your business, you will have access to globally competitive travel rates sourced from various platforms.

We take product knowledge seriously – it’s why we stand out from the crowd. Your Corporate Traveller expert has a minimum of 5 years travel experience and we invest substantially in the ongoing development of our people. This means that they are always armed with the tools to deliver bottom line savings to your business.

3. Free after-hours assistance

With a mobile workforce, it is vital that your travelling employees have access to an experienced travel manager should an emergency arise. For this reason you are given a permanent after-hours number which is at your disposal for any dilemmas, predicaments or changes to existing travel plans.

This is not a call centre, it is part of our business. Each team has its own after-hours number which means that you will be connected with someone who is in touch with your needs and can provide immediate assistance in the event of an emergency.

And best of all this service is available to you at no additional cost.

4. Flexible payment options

At Corporate Traveller we understand that travel related costs represent a significant area of expense. As a member of a larger group Corporate Traveller is able to offer our clients access to flexible payment options including interest free credit accounts, lodge cards and bill-back facilities. This ensures that you can get the most value out of your business travel without it being a financial drain.

In addition to this, your expert will work together with you to find a billing process that fits best with your business. Invoices can be sent to your travel booker at point of sale or periodically with statement reports delivered on a recurring schedule.

5. Free on demand reporting

With comprehensive management reporting you can take better control of your overall travel performance, gain clearer insight into your travel patterns and identify savings opportunities.

Corporate Traveller’s user-friendly online reporting tool places key indicators, travel spend reports and invoice copies right at your fingertips. This means that you will always be armed with the travel data you need to enhance performance and make the most of our travel budget.

Our experts will assist you with the system setup and training and provide insights into how to analyse your travel spend reports.

6. No contracts & a competitive fee structure

We believe our clients should have a choice. By providing exceptional customer service and great value for money we build strong relationships and maintain a 97% customer retention rate. This is why you’ll never be asked to sign a fixed term contract with Corporate Traveller – unless you would like one.

Walk away at any time if you are unsatisfied.

Living up to our commitment to deliver great value, we are proud to say that our fee structure is one of the most competitive in the market. You’ll also benefit from a number of complimentary services including SMS notification of your itineraries and vouchers plus free tracking of any unused airline tickets.
