How to Save Time, Money and Effort on Business Travel with a Corporate Lodging Solution

Article | March 12, 2020

Business travel is a huge expense for many companies. Did you know that the average cost of a business trip totals $1,286?

Now, reimagined travel experiences are extending customer engagement beyond the trips themselves. And the relationships between brands and travelers are no longer grounded on simple transactions. Travel brands are going beyond simple rewards to redefine loyalty programs around customer service, customer journeys and customer trust.
