Using our travel knowledge and expertise to ensure your travel programme delivers against objectives.
Total programme analysis
Providing expert advice on your travel management strategy utilising our knowledge and understanding of the specific challenges of the charity, academic and not-for-profit sectors and by conducting a thorough analysis of your bookers’ behaviour. We can then help you implement changes to ensure programme optimisation.
Negotiating air and hotel programmes and optimising loyalty schemes
Analysing your buying behaviour, we will use this insight to make recommendations on the consolidation of suppliers and negotiate rates. Details of your average fares and discounts by carrier, top market pairs, and which carriers are being used for specific routes will be provided and we can develop a standard RFP and provide regular reports. We can also ensure your frequent flyer programme is being maximised at every opportunity and, working with our airline partners, we will investigate Status Match options.
Helping your organisation achieve buy-in from stakeholders by demonstrating the benefits and advantages of embracing any changes to travel policy and processes. Clear, compelling and meaningful messages will be communicated and ongoing support and feedback is essential to achieving long-term compliance and satisfaction. We can also provide onsite support on a more permanent basis to enable successful change management and travel policy implementation, supporting your existing structure and resources
Travel payment and expense management programmes
We will undertake a complete audit of your current finance and expense management procedures to identify leakage and establish which payment and expense programmes and policies would best suit the requirements of your business.
By gaining a more thorough understanding of the different aspects of business travel, you are in a much better position to make a more realistic assessment of tender responses and offers from TMCs. Our experienced consultants will share this knowledge and help you understand the industry terms and demystify the travel jargon that can often be found in proposals.
There is nothing more important than the safety and wellbeing of your staff. We can help you build risk management in to your travel policy so that it becomes an integral part of your programme enabling you to establish and assess the risk, make informed decisions based on the latest intelligence and manage the situation should the worst happen.
Carbon footprint and green travel
Analysing all aspects of eco travel, from carbon footprint statistics and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reporting to carbon offsetting and ground vs air savings. If this information isn’t readily available, we can advise on systems that will provide data on the emissions associated with all your air and overland travel. We will help you understand how carbon emissions data can be displayed to enable arrangers to choose lower carbon options.
