Corporate Travel FAQ
A: Absolutely. For businesses without travel policies in place, we are available to walk you through the process of creating one. For companies with pre-existing travel policies in place, we can help revise your guidelines to reflect initiatives such as reducing travel spending, applying reimbursement plans, and ensuring employee safety.
A: The Concur Travel & Expense application is the primary booking tool our dedicated account managers will setup employers with. Once your company profile is created, your travel policy can automatically be enforced. Concur also provides realtime expense reporting, and allows employees to file for reimbursements instantaneously. One of our other partners is Magnatech; a software company with a plethora of wonderful applications for employee monitoring during times of travel.
A: The first way we help businesses save significant amounts on corporate travel is by identifying the spending habits of your employees such as which airlines, hotels, and transportation methods they prefer. After that, we will then contact our long list of partners to see if we can negotiate contracted rates to accommodate the spending habits of your company, while remaining within budget and the travel policy you’ve set. This automated process allows for expenses to be reduced without requiring employees to remember to fit within your travel policy each purchase.
A: Corporate events absolutely fall within our capabilities. Strategic meeting management, finding ideal meeting spaces, and planning out group events are what we can bring to the table for your company. As with any of our other services, mitigating travel risk is a crucial element to this service as well.
General Travel FAQ
A: Yes. What you need depends on where you go. If you’re boarding a plane and you’re over the age of 18, you will need a photo ID, such as your driver’s license on your passport. For travel that occurs outside of the United States, you will need a passport. Check both your license and your passport before you begin to book your trip. Make sure that both documents are still current.
If you need to apply for a passport or renew your current passport, leave yourself plenty of time. New passports can take up to two months to arrive unless you opt for an expedited approach.
A: Pack as you normally would, but bear in mind the rules of the airline you choose. Pack your carry-on carefully. Remember to follow the 3-1-1 rule for liquids. Check to see about any regulations on checked baggage as well, to avoid being charged more for extra or heavy luggage.
A: Yes, we will issue your tickets at the point of purchase. Bringing your tickets and boarding passes to the airport is your responsibility.
