Travel offers so much more than just an escape from our everyday lives. Yes, it’s a chance to take a break, but it can also have a much deeper impact on our soul – changing our perceptions of life, awakening new emotions and shaping who we are. Here’s how Henry Miller once famously wrote: “One’s destination is never a place, but rather a new way of looking at things.” That was over 60 years ago, yet still holds true today. Travel broadens the mind, opens us up to new experiences and changes how we see the world – and, in turn, ourselves. Ultimately, it allows us to explore and evolve on a deeper level, helping to shape who we are.

Article | February 25, 2020

Travel managers have long looked for a way to improve the traveler experience. They’re providing new tools and services to the employees, hoping that this will increase compliance and reduce costs. However, these results are not often achieved, because tools are implemented without a true understanding of the traveler and their needs.

Frequent flyer: will business travel bounce back from coronavirus?

Article | February 25, 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.
