Jenny’s best advice for corporate travellers?
Make the most of your frequent flyer program by choosing a credit card that earns you points and link accounts to earn points on your supermarket spend, petrol and online purchases. Then redeem them for flights and upgrades.
Can you share an insight into corporate travel?
While over 65 per cent of all bookings are made online, don’t underestimate the value of having an expert behind the scenes. They can quickly book you on a new flight after a cancellation for example, while other travellers queue for assistance.
How many countries have you travelled to?
I’ve been to 27 countries and I’m hoping my next trip will be a European skiing holiday.
