Some companies still handle their travel arrangements without the aid of a corporate travel agency. Partnering with a business travel agency like American Express Global Business Travel for corporate travel management can provide many benefits for planning business travel.

Discover five benefits of having a corporate travel agent.

  • Leave it to the corporate travel experts: First, using a business travel agency saves your company time. Switching to more efficient online booking tools, the booking processes make sure that your employees can book both efficiently and according to your policy, which takes quite a bit of stress out of the travel planning process. Furthermore, the more time a corporate travel agency spends handling your business travels, doing what we do best, the more time there is for your employees to do what they do best and get the most out of their business travel experience.
  • Really get the best fares: You may think that you’re getting the best pricing through the use of a personal agent or one of the many online travel agencies. However, switching to using corporate travel services with American Express Global Business Travel means that you can utilize a large network to find even more savings.
    Having cost-effective corporate travel solutions in place for your corporate travel managers is essential to the company’s bottom line and usually, to your internal travel policy compliance guidelines.
  • Get around-the-clock support: With a solid corporate travel management program, your employees will be in good hands with experienced global travel advisors at their service. Corporate travel managers protect your most important investments, your travelers, with 24/7 support from a network of global travel management representatives standing by in 140 countries. These representatives can do everything from give advice on the local entertainment options to provide aid in cases of travel interruption or emergency, so that your company can uphold its duty of care.
  • Learn from your travels: You can’t run your business travel efficiently if you can’t learn from your corporate travel program. Partnering with a business travel agency like American Express Global Business Travel gives you the improved business travel analytics and reporting tools you need at your disposal to continuously improve the way your travelers move around the world. Get actionable insights to further improve your corporate travel program performance, your bottom line, and track your environmental impact with the tools we provide.

Summary:

There are many benefits to working with a professional corporate travel service including getting affordable online booking deals, receiving expert advice from a specialized travel counselor to enhance your employee’s trip experience, staying compliant, and gaining deeper insights into your overall corporate travel program through analytics and reporting.
