Managing your business travel costs efficiently
Travel In many companies, travel is the second biggest area of spend after payroll, which is why few can afford to leave travel costs un-managed.
Over half of the £30billion+ spent by British companies on business travel this year will be managed through travel management companies, or TMCs. So what’s a Travel Management Company?
We help smaller companies to save money and time, by giving them the means to book business travel through a single point rather than losing productivity whilst individual employees waste time making their own arrangements.
For larger organisations, we help to shape business travel policies that maximise compliance and leverage maximum savings.
Regardless of the company’s size, location, spend or travel needs we leverage the buying power of all Chambers clients to secure the lowest possible hotel rates, air and rail fares.
Mobile travel apps and social networking are changing the way in which travel is booked and consumed.
And by establishing trip approval and business travel cost control protocols within travel policies we work with our clients to change buying behaviour, eliminate un-necessary travel and streamline expense processes.
We also provide the technology that captures every booking and enables travellers' whereabouts to be tracked whilst away on business — especially important when disaster strikes and you need to meet your Duty of Care obligations.
Mobile travel apps and social networking are changing the way in which travel is booked and consumed. We were amongst the first TMCs to incorporate these innovations into our travel management toolkit.
Changing the way business travel is managed
Apart from our technology, what really sets Chambers aside from other TMCs is the way we deliver our service and the way we manage every client relationship.
