As your corporate travel agent, my job is to keep your expenses under control while providing the best service. As a Protravel International travel agent, I can provide the reporting that CFOs need so that they can see the savings I provide and track the company’s budget versus actual spending.
Many of my corporate clients have written travel policies that require me to find the most economical and comfortable routes for their clients. Through the Protravel systems and my knowledge, I can shop for the best prices and routings efficiently. Plus, what might take an hour for you to research on Expedia might take me five or ten minutes.
Protravel has negotiated fares, and often I can upgrade you from full-fare coach to business class with no additional charge. Plus, our close relationship with most airlines means that we often can waive cancelation fees if your plans change.
Another way I often find savings is by selecting the right airlines and routings. Especially on international trips, prices can vary greatly. At the same time, recognizing that most business travelers will need to step off the plane and into a meeting, I am mindful of comfort in terms of seating and food, staying on top of changes in quality or frequency of delays.
I am also experienced in pulling together complicated itineraries, knowing when to fly, take a train or fly, and finding the most efficient routings. And when I don’t know the answer, I can turn to Protravel’s internal network to find someone who does.
Protravel also makes it easy for me to track my travelers. If you are delayed and miss a connection, you will not need to wait in line at the airport only to find that you cannot get on the next flight. Often I will have you rebooked before you are even off the plane.
When it comes to hotels, I look for properties in the area you need to be at the cost and comfort level you desire. I’ll also be sure that your frequent flyer numbers and hotel loyalty points are entered and will look to arrange value-added amenities and when available, free room upgrades, to enhance your stay.
Once you’ve traveled with me, I will know automatically make sure that your hotel has the workout equipment you want and that even your quirkiest requests are met.
