4 Huge Reasons Using a Business Travel Agent is Better Than Booking Online

If you are still relying solely on online booking companies for your travel planning, you have no idea what you’re missing.  Here just a few huge reasons to use a business travel agent in 2018:

#1 Save Time and Money

Professional agents have access to insider discounts and promotions through their suppliers you won’t find online.  They can save you on average 22.95 hours of researching* the best deal and planning out complicated itineraries.  Business travel agents also know when you actually are getting the best deal because they know the market, and best of all, they never charge hidden fees!

#2 Benefit from Expertise

With a Travel Management Company, you get peace of mind knowing that your agents can manage complicated routes and itineraries for corporate travel with ease and efficiency.  They also have increased flexibility with cancellation rules, and the inside industry connections to get you the most value for your budget.

#3 Priority and Personalisation

Booking online means a one size fits all approach to travel, and you as the customer are left in a lurch when it comes to your personal needs and wants. Using a travel management company means you will be able to craft an itinerary that suits you and your group.  This can be anything from finding you the best tacos, to hotels that cater to your allergies, to planning a trip to race supercars around the world.

#4 24/7 Support

Online suppliers will ding you big bucks for last minute bookings, changes, and cancellations.  If you book with an agency, however, you can reach your dedicated travel agent any time without waiting hours for the next available agent only to be juggled between endless people in the chain of command on the other end.  Business travel agents are dedicated to supporting you through your entire journey.

If you feel a business travel agency might benefit your company or perhaps you would like to change your current travel provider, please do get in touch with one of the team on 0203 805 4599 for a no obligation chat. Alternatively, you can email your travel needs to hello@yourcorporate.co.uk.

What Our Clients Say

Saving our customers time and money

Creative Resins has been at the forefront of decorative glass technology for over 30 years. When Louise contacted us to help with a trip to Oman, we discovered that the company had been using an airline’s website to book direct, paying in excess of £5,000 per trip in Business Class. Using our negotiated fares on this one flight YourTravel saved over £1000 per trip. Upon further investigation and a year’s great relationship, we delved into the companies travel policies and booking habits. We found that travel was often booked at the last minute and there was no one in authority to keep a watchful eye over what was being booked and where. We then worked with Louise to create passenger profiles for all of Creative Resins travellers including details such as preferred seat numbers, meals and airlines – we also set in place cabin restrictions (who can and can’t travel in an upgraded travel class). We then looked at the company’s calendar for the coming year, estimating when and where they would need to book travel and agreed that Your Travel would be proactive in trying to get confirmed travel dates from 4 weeks prior to the trip dates. This created a stress-free booking system that took budget and organisational pressure from the senior management, knowing they would always be working with a cost-effective travel budget. This lead to a reduced travel spend of just over 16% without cost-cutting and maintaining a high level of service.

‘’Working with Your Travel Corporate has been an enlightening experience, we were wasting money on travel and working with John and the team was very easy indeed. Everything is taken care of on every trip and we get a level of service that just can’t be achieved by the bigger travel agents, being treated as a valued client and not just another customer is fantastic!’’ Louise Bollom, Director
