5 Awesome Ways Travelling for Business Improves Your Life

The world is your oyster when you travel for business.  

When you are offered the chance to jet set and represent your company abroad, instead of thinking about it as an inconvenient hassle that rips you out of your day-to-day, imagine the unlimited possibilities for growth in your professional and personal life.

Here are five awesome ways business travel will improve your life:

Spark Innovation

Heading to new places, meeting new people, and testing your own limits will help you become the best version of yourself. It’ll give you a fresh perspective that sparks new ways of thinking back home.

This is known as the ‘Expert Generalist’ effect of gathering bits of new knowledge from a wide range of places, cultures, and experiences that will give you an edge in business and across all aspects of your life.

Build a Global Network

Building new relationships in different cities and countries has zero downside.  You never know how a new contact could be useful to you in the future (and vice versa), and if you ever come back for leisure, you’ll have a friend to show you all the best places to see, eat, drink, and do that you missed the first time around.

Explore New Places

It’s not always going to be exotic, but business travel allows you to discover places you might never have chosen to visit before.  Even if you have little downtime to explore the destination, you’ll be exposed to new customs, cultures, and ways of life that will open your mind expand your worldview.

Every Day is Exciting

Even creatures of habit can appreciate breaking out of a routine (or a rut) and embracing the new challenges and opportunities that travel brings.  You become stronger, more adaptable, and more flexible in your mindset when each day is fresh and different on the road.  It keeps you sharper and more aware of who you are and how you react to new situations, too.

Perks Galore

The best part about travelling for business is that everything (you need) is FREE and you can sign up for travel rewards and perks programs to get even more stuff for free.  Take full advantage of every free hotel stay, free meal, and free lobby fruit infused water you get along the way to make those perks count.

What Our Clients Say

Saving our customers time and money

Working within the entertainment sector to provide the ultimate in flexibility and service as well a proactive approach towards account management. In 2016 a trans-Atlantic artist management firm approached Your Travel Corporate to construct a travel plan for its UK and USA offices with an annual spend of £750,000.

Prior to working with Your Travel Corporate, the firm had contracted the services of another national travel agent. During the 12 months spent working with this agency, there were significant challenges in service delivery which led to multiple issues, lack of proactive account management and limited delivery of policy compliance.

After a problematic year, the firm took the decision to move away from their substandard agent and seek to engage a new agent – they chose Your Travel Corporate for several reasons;

–       The ability to work with a dedicated account manager and director, ensuring a positive relationship and understand of needs was built from the outset.

–       Our ability to understand and implement client objectives pro-actively.

–       Our personal and bespoke approach to client service.

 Results;

With our unique understanding of travel management and the importance of getting it right first time, we could map out a plan to move the firms travel management to Your Travel Corporate, with adequate and well thought out milestones, ensuring that our account management team worked effectively with the firms PA, EA and account team enabling the delivery of a full operational service within 3 months. A third quarter report shows a 19% saving on travel spend and we’re pleased to say that we’ve had extremely positive feedback from our client!
