Business travel is an ever-adapting industry, shaped by the current financial economy and growth of corporations across the world. Last year we published the top business travel trends for 2018, focusing on the role of travel management companies, flexibility and combining business with pleasure. This year we look at some of the top trends and how they might affect your business travel:
Time & Cost Efficiency
Businesses are looking to cut costs and reduce unnecessary wastage, meaning that travel needs to be as efficient and cost-effective as possible. Transport that takes employees from A-to-B as smoothly and economically as possible is favoured. Private transport can save on many costs and can often be cheaper than public transport.
Fuelled by advancements in smart technology, employees now except everything to be readily available. Information should be easily accessed and transport should be prompt, ensuring that business travellers don’t waste any time waiting around. Private transport is an efficient alternative to public transport, and removes the wasted time from connections and waiting for scheduled departures.
As security gets tighter employees can expect to be subject to stricter checks. Particularly in airports, this can mean that business travellers need to arrive at their departure point in advance – and reliability, as missed connections can be costly to businesses. A private chauffeur guarantees a reliable form of transport that won’t let you down. The efficient travel time also means that the impact of having to arrive early at the airport will be reduced.
The sharing economy continues to grow, as platforms like Airbnb and Booking.com boom. Increasingly this accommodation is used by business travellers and hosts are adapting their properties accordingly – installing improved WiFi and putting together guest experiences that cater for short term residents on business trips. This type of accommodation requires business travellers to arrange their own transport. With dedicated chauffeur services you transport routes are arranged hassle-free and you can relax in the knowledge that your drive will pick you up and drop you off at your accommodation’s doorstep.
