Corporate Traveler Launches the SME Travel Toolkit
Must-read series providing expert guidance, tools and tips for business travel in the pandemic era
1 February, 2022 - Small and mid-sized enterprises (SMEs) are playing a central role in fuelling post-pandemic recovery and spearheading the return of the business traveler. Corporate Traveler is already seeing a positive trajectory for 2022 with a bookings uplift of more than 10 per cent over the last quarter, boosted by travel restrictions beginning to ease internationally. This indicates a strong desire for in-person meetings and gatherings for successful business development, customer retention and networking.
To support this vital segment, Corporate Traveler has unveiled the ultimate SME Travel Toolkit to give start-up and mid-market business owners a helping hand as they adapt to the new normal and begin travelling again.
As the dominant player in the SME travel space which counts more than 1,500 team members serving over 16,000 customers globally, Corporate Traveler has tapped three decades of industry expertise to compile this easy-to-digest complimentary resource.
Available to read and download via the Corporate Traveler website, the 10-part monthly series tackles the most pressing concerns for SME’s. The SME Travel Toolkit will also set out to address the myths of managed travel programs by taking readers through the benefits of enlisting a business travel pro that you can trust and rely upon.
Chris Lynes, President of Corporate Traveler for the Americas notes that many are faced with a new set of challenges, especially when trying to navigate international travel in the pandemic-era.
“Traveling today is a far different experience than before the global pandemic. This is particularly true for SME’s who were previously looking after their own travel needs. With destination rules and restrictions in a constant state of flux, many companies are struggling to stay on top of the latest developments around the world.”
“It’s clear that the desire for in-person meetings has increased as restrictions begin easing worldwide, but so has the complexity involved with traveling. Corporate Traveler’s new SME Travel Toolkit, is specifically designed to share our deep industry knowledge to help start-up to mid-market business owners decide how to plan and travel easily and safely.”
With the first chapter launching 1 February, readers can expect to benefit from a variety of educational assets to help improve and inform their business travel choices. From providing guidance on how to craft the perfect policy to securing the best rates, controlling, and tracking spending to keeping your people safe, Corporate Traveler promises to discuss the issues that are troubling SMEs while offering practical advice.
In keeping with the company’s customer centric approach, the SME Travel Toolkit will also share details of real-life client issues resolved with Corporate Traveler’s help and support. Useful checklists and other downloadable tools will be offered too.
While it is envisaged this content will mostly appeal to growing businesses that typically organize their own travel, it may also benefit companies looking for advice as they reconsider their own programs in the year ahead.
