Background information on this topic
Occasions for company trips
There are many reasons to go on a business trip – especially due to ever-increasing globalisation of business markets and industries. Meetings with customers or suppliers on site, meetings with colleagues at other company sites, participation in trade events, seminars for professional development, trade fairs and exhibitions to other agencies or companies are among the most common reasons for an employee to leave the office for business reasons.
Transportation on business trips
The most frequently used method of transportation for business travel is the plane, followed by the car and train. The annual consumer report of the Federal Association of the German Aviation Industry states that longer distances are preferably travelled by air: air traffic has dropped slightly compared to the previous year, but remains the clear forerunner in terms of modes of transport with 56 percent.
Flying: safely and on time
In terms of perceived security, aviation is once again clearly ahead: two out of three passengers believe that flying is the safest form of transportation. And every second passenger deemed aircraft the most reliable form of transportation. Punctuality and efficiency, which are of great importance in the context of business trips.

By lowering travel costs – but motivating employees – PartnerPlusBenefit can become an important tool for a company. Employees earn valuable BenefitPoints on business trips, which can be exchanged for attractive awards such as award flights, upgrades or reward vouchers.
