If you're a travel manager for an international company, your days are probably never the same. Someday your sales manager needs to send his team from Addis Ababa to Paris by plane, for a full service meeting. The next day, the executive assistant to the vice president, wants to book a flight to another city in Europe or Asia? How to organize each of these trips? Chances are your managers will have different needs depending on the route and the expectations of their travelers. These nuances can impact the design and function of a global business travel program.
The motto "Think global, act local" takes on its full meaning in the context of managing business travel for an international company. Your employees live in places with cultural nuances and unique travel habits. Whether they are traveling to a nearby city or abroad, they want a seamless and locally relevant travel experience. A travel program that takes into account local differences and what travelers want helps make business travel a positive experience. Your business has everything to gain: the more satisfied your travelers are, the more they will respect your travel policy.
For the good of the business, it would be best to choose a flight with an airline that offers attractive prices and schedules. The more choices you have about flight schedules, the more productive traveling employees will be.
That's why your global travel program should include flexible transportation solutions. By offering your travelers good travel plans, you can optimize your travel expenses while strengthening compliance with your travel policy and guaranteeing everyone a quality travel experience.
