Business travelers travel for one reason: work. But all work and no play can make employees dull. It doesn’t take fancy human behavior studies to prove those who feel their professional contributions are appreciated are more productive and effective. CIRE’s corporate travel services are just the ticket to make them feel special. The best part is that there’s no extra effort or cost required on your part.Going on a venture capital-raising business trip from Buffalo, NY to Bangkok is brutal. The flight times, layovers and logistics alone are stressful enough. Now imagine taking your six-month-old baby along. Your stress level just went through the roof, didn’t it?
CIRE’s travel planners aren’t able to go along as an extra set of hands to help carry, change, feed and soothe. However, we can arrange for an airport ambassador to meet you at the gates during layovers. The ambassador could escort you both to the airline’s lounge area, where you’d rest comfortably on free passes.
An escort and free lounge passes don’t seem like a big deal, but it can make all the difference in the world to a busy traveler. What’s the additional cost to the employer? Nothing. Nada. Zilch. Zero. It’s the joy and benefit of working with a key player in the business travel game.
Small gestures have big impacts. Simply getting a wider seat with a few inches more leg-room on the plane, a nice bottle of wine waiting in the hotel room or a suite upgrade can make a business traveler’s day. These perks aren’t reserved for VIPs and executives only. They’re available to anyone if you have the connections that a major corporate travel service has.
Too many business travelers are missing out on the perks of traveling on business. Too many companies are using in-house travel planners or corporate travel services that act just like online travel booking sites. Both are basically do-it-yourself travel planning that leaves perks and upgrades on the table, little things that mean a lot to the people who impact your bottom line.
Whatever level you’re spending on business travel, there are ways to make your people feel special. With one caveat: you have to use a corporate travel planner with established connections and relationships with all the major airlines, hotels and car rental companies.
We make corporate travel fun. We use our connections to get you the perks that business travelers need to stay fresh, like airport ambassadors and lounge passes. We’re always quick with an inside tip or recommendation. We know where you’ll find a Plinko game in downtown San Francisco.
This is what CIRE can do, and does best. Our corporate travel planners think of things no one else does, the things that really matter to business travelers. Contact us today to learn more about how we can change the way you view business travel.
