As the effort to contain COVID-19 drives countries to close their borders and airlines to ground fleets, the corporate travel management community remains on the front line of getting people home or to their place of work. As much as most consumers can only watch the situation as it changes hour by hour, travel management companies must react to those changes. Fahim Khan, product development director for TMC Reed & Mackay, says that right now while there is not much new travel being booked, there are still bookings to be managed. “There’s still quite a bit of volume for us in terms of refunds and making sure people are able to change. There’s also quite a bit of engagement from an account management point of view as we look to advise on what we’re seeing in the industry.

The very essence of travel and hospitality lies in connecting people to each other as well as to places and experiences. However, consumer behavior is constantly changing, competition continues to heat up, and the industry, though witnessing consolidation at various levels, continues to be highly fragmented.

Employees increasingly organize their own travel, empowered by corporate self-booking tools for search, booking, and payment. 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?
