Four Way to Save on Business Travel

Business travel can be a costly necessity for many organizations. Tangerine Travel understands travel expenses and the essentials to make the corporate travel process positive and efficient. Below are some tips to help implement cost savings for your corporate travel program.

Work with a Travel Management Company

A Travel Management Company (TMC) will plan travel, process reservations, work with online booking tools, tabulate data, implement technology, track travelers and lend support to the businesses it works with. The buying power and established relationships between travel vendors and TMCs allows for savings to be handed down to the client. Tangerine Travel offers out-of-the-box services to ensure each client’s needs are met. Working with a TMC can offer savings, organization and peace of mind to corporations and their traveling employees.

Create a Business Travel Policy

Creating and enforcing a business travel policy will help any business streamline travel procedures. In addition to a travel policy, having a TMC to create guidelines and offer support to travelers when booking travel will help in saving your business money and booking travel with ease.

Increase Advance Booking Period

When booking corporate travel the best way to be cost effective is to book trips further out, particularly for rail and air travel. Tangerine Travel can offer companies reports that show how far in advance bookings have been made. If the data suggests the average bookings are happening 3 days before travel, companies can implement a change in their travel policy or focus on improving the time of bookings.

Use an Online Booking Tool

Tangerine Travel works hand-in-hand with Concur to offer our clients an online booking tool. Concur is an excellent way to book travel quickly while also having the support team at Tangerine Travel to aid in any questions or booking concerns that may arise. In addition to the online booking tool, Concur offers an expense program that can make recording receipts and submitting for reimbursement so simple and cost effective.
