What is the difference between a corporate travel agent and a leisure tourism travel agent?
Corporate travel agents have the necessary experience and know-how to assist business travellers who require expertly streamlined itineraries when they travel on behalf of their companies. Whereas leisure travel agents are normally more focused on the things to see and do in a given destination, our team works with each company and corporate traveller to ensure that their time on the road and in the air is spent as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.
Why does a business need a corporate travel policy?
Businesses require a corporate travel policy to ensure equal and fair treatment of all their business travellers, and to provide travelling employees with a clear mandate on how time and resources should be spent during a corporate journey. These policies also provide a blueprint for the recourse an employee has in the event of unexpected happenstances that may occur while they travel for work.
Why does it help to have a travel agent in post-Covid 19 pandemic travel?
Every country, state, and territory around the world has slight variances in their response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and the legal ramifications this holds for foreign nationals, including business travellers, can change from one day to the next. Corporate travel planners keep track of these shifting landscapes to ensure that travelling employees are in compliance every step of the way.
Will my corporate travel agent handle all travel insurance?
Our TravelManor experts are authorised to sell travel insurance on your behalf. Our team will however require input and signatures at certain junctures in the process.
What is bleisure travel?
The term 'bleisure' is a cross-cultivation between 'business and leisure'. It refers to a journey that has both business travel and leisure components. For instance, an employee who travels for work may choose to take leave days before or after the dates that they are due to be at a certain destination on behalf of their company, and use this time to explore a new and exciting destination.
