Have attitudes towards business travel changed?

By now you will have realised that the way in which we travel has changed. But with travel managers now being given the green light to relaunch their travel programmes, many are wondering if their colleague’s attitudes towards travel have changed as well? We’ve compiled the key statistical findings from some of our well-known partners, to help answer this question. The results are encouraging. We hope they’ll put your mind at ease and help you realise that staff still see travelling as a major part of their role moving forward. These statistics show that now, more than ever, you need a travel management company with an innovative cross-platform booking tool like YourTrip to keep your staff happy while booking their next business trip.
