Elements of a Strong Corporate Travel Program

In order to make the most of your corporate travel budget, it is critical to plan for leveraging your program for all it is worth. Telling travelers to select the lowest logical airfare is just not enough. Here are the elements that should be considered when planning or evaluating your travel program.

1. Travel policy

A well written and disseminated travel policy is the foundation of any good travel program, and I am consistently amazed that so many corporations have such an outdated and poorly conceived travel policy, if they have one at all. It is not difficult to find a well written policy. One can be found online quite easily. All that remains is that it is edited to reflect corporate culture, and disseminated within the company so that everyone understands and agrees to follow it. For this reason, it is a good idea to have everyone sign a copy of the travel policy to ensure that it is read, understood and owned by all company staff. I suggest that everyone in the company signs a copy of the travel policy, whether they travel or not. They may change positions in the company later and be required to travel.

Base Tendriling Travel Expenses

As business travel expenses nose upward, companies are realizing that better cost-management techniques can make a difference

US. corporate travel expenses rocketed to more than $143 billion in 1994, according to American Express’ most recent survey on business travel management. Private-sector employers spend an estimated $2,484 per employee on travel and entertainment, a 17 percent increase over the past four years.

Corporate T&E costs, now the third-largest controllable expense behind sales and data-processing costs, are under new scrutiny. Corporations are realizing that even a savings of 1 percent or 2 percent can translate into millions of dollars added to their bottom line.

Savings of that order are sure to get management’s attention, which is a requirement for this type of project. Involvement begins with understanding and evaluating the components of T&E management in order to control and monitor it more effectively.

Hands-on management includes assigning responsibility for travel management, implementing a quality-measurement system for travel services used, and writing and distributing a formal travel policy. Only 64 percent of U.S. corporations have travel policies.

Even with senior management’s support, the road to savings is rocky-only one in three companies has successfully instituted an internal program that will help cut travel

What Travel Agents Need to Know About Corporate Travel Today

This is rightly named as the age of traveler-centricity and with the evolution of the new era of personalized travel; it is leading to research and development of a host of new so-called intelligent services. The command-and-control perspectives of traveling have changed a lot from the past and the focus has shifted more on the traveler and the productivity of each trip. It has become essential to maintain that the travelers have the greatest return on investment on each trip. New generations of young employees and managers, who have been growing up and dwelling in a digital age, are moving up the ranks as travelers. It has become essential to recognize the need for greater flexibility acknowledging that the employees who travel on corporate trips also consider a percentage of their trip to be a leisure outlet. With increasing globalization and rise in companies sending their staff overseas to network and connect with their offshore prospects/customers/suppliers, corporate travel is a highly profitable tourism segment. Before we talk about how tourism companies can better cater to business travelers, let us first look at why they prefer to use specialized corporate agencies over traditional agents

If you have a pre-existing condition and you want to travel it can sometimes be problematic in getting travel insurance. Insurers do not like to take calculated risks so they need to know if there is a likelihood that your condition could result in you needing medical assistance whilst you are abroad. hello,want to ask kc plan ko pumunta ng germany andun kz ung tita ko she wants to invite me.sakali po bang nsa ibang bnsa din ako pd ako mag apply n ng visa puntang germany khit na sa ibang bnsa ako?or need to go ack pinas pra dun mag apply?thnx po help nmn..no idea kz.

The 2012 winner, Seattle’s Beechers Handmade Cheese Company beat out 1710 other entrees with its Flagsheep: a mixed cow and sheep milk cheddar from herds of Willapa Hills near Centralia Washington. Unfortunately, only 23 wheels were made, and the demand is far greater than the supply. If you are in Seattle, you may still be lucky enough to score some at Beecher’s Pike Street Market store, but the rest of us are likely out of luck.

Travels With Tavel

If you have a pre-existing condition and you want to travel it can sometimes be problematic in getting travel insurance. Insurers do not like to take calculated risks so they need to know if there is a likelihood that your condition could result in you needing medical assistance whilst you are abroad. When we are on vacation or if we have to travel on business, there are so many things that we want to do. However, remember that pregnant women tend to tire easily. The different time zone and eating meals that one may not be accustomed to may add to your fatigue. So use your common sense and slow down when needed.

All I can say to all our kababayan is to play safe. If your are a job seeker, please go to POEA for full guidance and for the right job for you and to avoid unnecessary problem. But if you are really going abroad as a visitor, ask the respective consular office for proper guidance and please go ahead if you have sufficient fund. God bless us.Tavel

If one plan everything all in advance, the travel experience will be less stressful to the pregnant women. These include … Read more

Considering Travel Insurance To USA?

If you’re a Filipino and a holder of Philippine passport who likes traveling and exploring the beauty of the world, but hates the visa requirement to some countries, frown no more for you can still go to wonderful places without hassle-visa-appointments. As I meet more and more people in this new identity as a DPT student, I find myself still wanting to tell them about a whole different life I had before all this. Most of the people who I meet now don’t know much about the girl who spent a month volunteering in Costa Rica, a month traveling alone around Mexico, and months fighting a parasite in Ecuador (among other exotic and dangerous adventures, although Juan the Amoeba certainly left his mark). Most don’t know what led to this person, to this blog, and what led to giving all of that up. (And who’s to say anyone cares?!) That said, the time has come to put TwT aside for a little bit. I’m still Travels with Tavel. I always will be! But I’ve decided to keep more of the journey to myself, now.

Hopefully I was able to make it interesting and beautiful, There are a lot more places … Read more

If you have a pre-existing condition and you want to travel it can sometimes be problematic in getting travel insurance. Insurers do not like to take calculated risks so they need to know if there is a likelihood that your condition could result in you needing medical assistance whilst you are abroad. When I started TwT, I had no idea that I’d get a dream job to move to Ecuador and work as a travel writer, which would turn into an awakening of some sorts when I realized it wasn’t what I wanted anymore. I had no idea that I would eventually change careers completely and work my butt off to become a Doctor of Physical Therapy. But through it all, I kept writing. Even if it was just for me.

A family member picked us up from the Jacksonville train station and brought us home to St. Augustine. Give yourself extra time to get to train or bus station, airport or even when travelling by car. This will at least overcome any stressful situation if caught in the traffic jam.

Geneva The Pride Of Switzerland

Wondering what to expect on your first train trip? We did too! My daughter and I recently traveled by Amtrak Train. We weren’t sure what to expect or exactly how things would go so we kept a record of all that happened so we could share it here with you. We learned many things and hope this article will help other first time train travelers with their first train trip. Getting to halfway has been a long process. A LONG, challenging process in so many more ways than I ever could have imagined. (Did I mention it has felt long?) Somehow, it’s also been a whirlwind. Every time a semester ends, people ask me if I’m done yet. They say, Did you just graduate?” or This is your last year, right?” Ah, how I wish I could say yes. But the answer has been a steady and repetitive No…” followed by a semi-desperate but optimistic …not yet!” I’m so used to not being done (yet) that actually arriving at halfway feels like a major accomplishment. Halfway means the amount of time left can’t be more than the amount of time I’ve already put in (yay math!).
