Occasions for company trips
There are many reasons to go on a business trip – especially due to ever-increasing globalisation. Meetings with customers or suppliers on site, meetings with colleagues at other company sites, participation in trade events, seminars for professional development, trade fairs, exhibitions or temporary secondments 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 on company trips 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 clearly at the forefront 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 aircraft are 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.
Book business trips efficiently
Seven out of ten companies use a specialist business travel agency for booking train tickets or business flights. By bundling the bookings and rewriting their comprehensive understanding of price structures, these agents can help reduce travel costs and use the travel budget as efficiently as possible. Moreover, travel agents offer the option of managing corporate bonus programmes such as PartnerPlusBenefit for the participating companies, which further optimises the travel costs.
Get more out 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.
Just one business trip can bring worthwhile returns. For example, a round trip from Lisbon to Shanghai via Frankfurt for two persons in Lufthansa Business Class can earn a company 13,400 BenefitPoints. For these points, the company could receive the following awards:
- 4 flights from Lisbon to Frankfurt in Economy Class (one way)
- A return upgrade to Business Class on flights from Frankfurt to Dubai
In addition to earning BenefitPoints for the company, Miles & More members personally earn miles on every business flight.
