Barclaycard and business travel

The business travel market is facing an era of unprecedented change and growth led by changing consumer requirements and an improved economic situation, according to a new report from Barclaycard.
Over the course of 2016, business travellers will increasingly expect access to peer reviews, unfettered information and simple booking tools when organising their trips, chiefly due to experiences they’ve had when arranging their personal travel.

Meanwhile, demand for business travel is continuing to pick up worldwide as recovery from the credit crunch continues, with spending predicted to increase globally by 6.9% in 2016 according to the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA).  Coupled with the emergence of the leisure effect, corporate travel managers will need to review their programmes to cater for shifts in demand, whilst staying aligned to overall business objectives and their own corporate culture.
In a new white paper – developed in partnership with business travel experts Festive Road – Barclaycard explores the implications of this new environment for corporate travel managers and how they can best prepare for the future.  The report identifies Demand, Data and Distribution as the main challenges now facing businesses. www.barclaycard.co.uk   www.festiveroad.org
