The rollout of Covid-19 vaccines around the world is a great step towards reducing travel risk. Business travel is sure to surge as travel restrictions ease up and companies brace themselves to reap new opportunities.
But there are other also other travel risks to consider even beyond the pandemic – to name a few others, political instability, crime rates and climate changes.
What does restarting travel mean for your business? As your company regains business momentum, it is beneficial to reduce costs and risks. Here’s how travel management can help.
In this article, we'll take a look at:
It is smart practice to establish ‘worst case scenario’ health and safety protocols. For example, have a procedure in place to repatriate your business travellers at any time, any place, especially in this uncertain time.
Collaborating with Riskline, a travel risk intelligence platform, TruTrip provides up-to-date travel location data and travel alerts that will help every business traveller to create an acute sense of awareness of risk, as well as a two-way communication for both travellers and the management.
These real-time alerts are incorporated into TruTrip’s single view Traveller Dashboard that allows you to track your business travellers in real-time. The Traveller Dashboard allows you to easily view booking details made by your business travellers from flight to car reservation details.
Our 24/7 customer service team ensures open communication channels with your team and are ready to help in any time of need.
When preparing for a business trip, getting the right travel documents in order and keeping abreast of the latest travel restrictions can be difficult. The last thing you’ll want when jet-setting is realising you missed an entry requirement, or be caught off-guard with a change in travel restrictions. Preparation is the key to success, and with TruTrip gets you ready for your upcoming trip in more ways than one.
Created in 2020 during the pandemic, Covid Entry Check is a free tool that lets any traveller get the latest travel restrictions and information with a single click. Travellers are also able to easily search for testing facilities in their area and buy health and safety kits.
Here is how it works within the TruTrip booking platform:
The Fit to Fly feature built into TruTrip enables travellers to automatically check their travel requirements when selecting their flight.
A tight but flexible travel policy is known to deliver up to 30% in savings when done right. TruTrip’s policy builder offers agile rules setting, smart budget planning and transparent controls that will help you find travel solutions that fit your company and team.
This can be handy in instances where the business traveller chooses to extend or upgrade their flight or accommodation for leisure or comfort purposes. TruTrip provides travellers with the flexibility to top up and pay the difference in fare on their own if the budget is exceeded.
Changes in schedule and travel restrictions can disrupt business travel plans. For travellers, this can be a hindrance to planning ahead of time. But it doesn’t have to be. Partnering with FWD Insurance, TruFlex protects up to 80% of your travel costs and allows you to cancel for any reason up to 24 hours before your trip.
There are a few flexible travel options you can opt for, but TruFlex stands out by offering up to 50% in savings and instant cash refunds. With cash, you get true flexibility to re-book your flight and accommodation any time and with any provider.
