Preferred Corporate Suppliers Neglected by Travellers

In its latest study The U.S. Business Traveler: Debunking Common Myths About Corporate Travel, Phocuwright has uncovered shifting trends among business travellers, opting for the services of preferred corporate travel suppliers less often when booking a trip.

The survey of 2,300 American corporate travellers revealed that fewer than half of those governed by a corporate travel policy always use contracted suppliers, while only about one third claimed to adhere to the policy.

This is encouraged by the fact that only some 10 percent of managed travellers confirmed negative consequences when booking outside their corporate policy as US companies lack strict measurements when rules are violated.

Considering price and convenience first, business travellers also take advantage of confidentiality when booking with the smartphones.
