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

Article | August 4, 2021

Business travel is a huge expense for many companies. Did you know that the average cost of a business trip totals $1,286? Lodging accounts for the majority of that figure, while meals, flights and car rentals make up the rest. But it’s not all bad news.

Sometimes a problem, or many, may arise due to various factors beyond anybody’s control, be it environmental, geopolitical, or even personal.

How Google Flights is shaking up the travel Industry

Article | August 4, 2021

The internet is littered with the bodies of companies unable to adapt when Big Tech moved to offer a service for free. Possibly the most famous example in tech history remains Microsoft’s decision in 1996 to give away its browser Internet Explorer bringing Netscape’s skyrocketing share price to an abrupt halt. The rest is history. Although Google’s recent decision to stop charging for leads to airlines and OTAs in Google Flights might look insignificant in comparison, it is sending shockwaves across the travel industry.
