Below, I've compiled them all onto one graph to create the last predictor you need to understand for the next few weeks.

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

Article | April 16, 2020

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. For every dollar spent on business travel, companies see a $2.90 increase in profit and a $9.50 increase in revenue. So, business travel is at least well worth the investment. Nevertheless, wouldn’t it be great if you could make that same amount of profit and revenue with a smaller business travel spend? That idea isn’t as crazy as you might think. Many companies rely on an unmanaged business travel system. They waste time, effort and money by manually organizing their work trips. By choosing a corporate lodging solution for all of your hotel bookings, you automate a lot of the process, achieving cheaper and more efficient business travel as a result.

How blockchain is reinventing travel loyalty programs for both brands and consumers

Article | April 16, 2020

But - considering total global spend on loyalty programs is estimated to be $323 billion in 2019 – a more critical statistic is: on average people are active in less than half (6.7) of the programs they belong too. More often than not, loyalty programs do not drive loyal behavior. The travel sector has some of the lowest satisfaction rates, according to Bond’s survey of 55,000 consumers in more than 20 markets around the world. Only 37% of hotel loyalty members and 38% of car rental members say they are satisfied with their programs; airlines, meanwhile, fare slightly better at 42%.
