5 Travel Myths Busted
We know that the travel experience has changed. Things aren’t completely back to normal, but it’s miles better than where we were months ago. It's great to welcome back 68% of our customers as of May 2021 who are now back and flying for business. We've seen an increase in corporate travel across consulting, medical, construction and mining industries.
There’s a lot of myths out there though that simply aren’t true. Did you know that travel is permitted now? And that you won’t lose your money if a flight is cancelled? That’s why we’ve compiled the attached blog 5 Travel Myths Busted. Take a look – it’ll only take a couple of minutes.
1. Travel is not permitted
Not only is domestic travel within Australia permitted in all states, but overseas travel is also permitted to certain countries with relevant exemptions. Access Corporate Traveller’s Travel News Hub for all the information you need to get back in the sky.
2. No one else is travelling, so we won’t either
It's great to welcome back 68% of our customers as of May 2021 who are now back and flying for business. We've seen an increase in corporate travel across consulting, medical, construction and mining industries. Is it time you reconsidered your travel plans?
3. If I book flights now, I will lose the money if the flights get cancelled
In 2020, Corporate Traveller secured $25 Million in credit for our customers through cancelled flights. A cancelled flight will not result in the loss of that ticket, but in a credit for your next trip. Partnering with Corporate Traveller ensures that no credit is left behind. Credits can be easily accessed in our online booking tool or through your next booking with a dedicated Travel Manager!
4. If I travel interstate and the borders close, I will get stuck
In every instance of the borders closing throughout the past year, our dedicated Travel Managers have successfully booked and returned Corporate Traveller clients to their point of origin. At the height of the pandemic in March 2020, our Travel Managers assisted over 4000 clients from 1415 companies with international and domestic flights.
5. Travel isn’t that important for our business right now
If travelling to visit clients has been an important function of your business in the past, then it will be even more this year! A study from Oxford Economics found that $12.50 of additional revenue is generated for every $1 spent on business travel. The question is, can your business afford not to get back on the road?
