Managing travel expenditure is a tough task for fast-growing technology companies. Who knows what the right travel policy for hotels in London or Edinburgh is? And what if the price you choose leads to employees sleeping in dangerous parts of big cities?

To avoid the headache entirely and save money fast, growing companies are implementing comprehensive Travel Programs, which are collections of Corporate Negotiated Rates (CNRs) designed to save money on all aspects of travel.

Set Up a Travel Program

Travel Programs consist of specially negotiated rates agreed upon between travel suppliers, such as hotels, airlines, and car rental companies, and corporate clients. These rates are often much, much lower than publicly available prices and cater to the specific needs of business travelers.

Fast-growing tech companies often have employees traveling frequently for meetings, conferences, and other business-related events. Without comprehensive Travel Programs in place, organizations may find themselves booking at standard or only lightly discounted rates, leading to overspending on travel. By leveraging Travel Programs, travel costs can be reduced by up to 30%, freeing up valuable resources for other business priorities.
