Why a travel management company is vital for savings
If your business is preparing to travel again post COVID-19, you should be thinking about how you’ll support booking consistency, spend visibility, savings, traveller safety, and compliance. Start by partnering with the right business travel management company (TMC).
At Egencia, we consolidate all your corporate travel management and travel programme needs into a single user-friendly solution, saving your business money and your travel managers and travellers’ time. From reporting on spend, risk management and duty of care to booking and managing business travel, everything you need is in one innovative corporate travel solution. Even your carefully constructed travel policy is easily woven into the solution, meaning traveller compliance is natural and easy to attain.
Download our essential checklist for business travel savings to find out if moving to managed travel — or switching up your TMC — could help you manage your spend and save on travel costs, improving your bottom line.
Switching to us from an incumbent TMC or an unmanaged programme is simple too. We can have you up and running in between one and fourteen weeks, depending on the size of your organisation, corporate travel policy and programme complexity. After a quick and efficient implementation, you can look forward to average business trip saving of 14 percent on flights*, 7 percent on hotels**, and the opportunity to create reports that will influence the way you spend and save on business travel.
“We’ve been able to create a multifaceted view into our travel spend, allowing us to identify and act on cost savings opportunities in real time. Egencia’s trip approval process took the pressure of managing policy compliance off our travel management team and put it where it should be — with the travellers and their managers.”
