One of the best ways to feel on top of the world is to head above some of the world’s greatest monuments, cities and natural wonders and get a look of them from above. A bird’s eye view if you will, will give you the type of view only a select few people will ever get to see. It will offer a totally different perspective than what anyone would normally think of and make them appreciate these things even more. Think of the wonders of the world and what they look like from the ground. Well that’s just one view of them and one way of seeing them, and most people don’t even think of taking a look from above.

Article | May 26, 2021

Controlling how employees spend company money on travel has been one of the biggest historic challenges for finance teams. Most company spend is governed by purchase orders, with payments made in relation to specific invoices from the company’s own bank. The data is available transparent and can be analyzed to spot any inconsistencies. But controlling travel spend, which is most company’s largest discretionary spend area, is much harder.

This can help with visibility, particularly if the corporate uses lodge or virtual cards to pay. However, pre-trip spend like air and hotel bookings only represent 50-60% of the money spent on travel. What about the rest?

The past year has been one of the most challenging for the travel industry. We saw the end of the expansion of the sector replaced by uncertainty, but it has reinforced our mission to bring the industry together to respond to travelers’ needs.

Frequent flyer: will business travel bounce back from coronavirus?

Article | March 9, 2020

With trade shows cancelled and companies limiting or even banning travel, Mark Manduca, aviation analyst at Citi, recently raised the question: “Will corporate travel ever truly recover again?” When the coronavirus crisis is over, will companies that have managed just fine with video conferencing decide to carry on, given how much cheaper it is? We have heard similar questions before. I wrote an article in the early 1990s, after the first Gulf war and the economic downturn, quoting experts who said company bosses had noticed a fall in costs from the resulting decline in travel and decided to make it permanent. Similar things were said after 9/11. Every economic slowdown produces the same statements.
