Saving Small Businesses Money on Travel

Wanderlust Marriage isn’t all about romantic and leisure travel. While we work with clients to customize fantastic vacations at great rates, we’re also experts at saving small businesses money on travel. We’re frequent business travelers ourselves, and we’ve been to many of the most popular business destinations in the world. This combined with a deep understanding of travel hacks saves our customers hundreds, and sometimes even thousands on trips to conferences and out of town business meetings.

Planning business trips can be a headache. Employees are already flooded with work and now their boss wants them to fly to San Fransisco for two days, where they’ll have zero time to enjoy the city before flying home. Typically, they’re expected to book the trip, while also staying within an allotted budget. In some cases, these are people who don’t travel very often and don’t know how to find the best deals. And with frequent business travelers, there can be a dark side to the glamour. 

We know people who have booked hotels they’ve regretted on business trips because they felt pressure from their company or university to save money. But it doesn’t have to be that way, because price is not always an indicator of quality! And if one or two websites doesn’t have a good deal, another one will. Like anything, familiarity and knowledge of the travel industry is key.

Saving small businesses money on travel doesn’t have to mean bunking staff in the same room or putting people up in a dilapidated motel. We recently heard about a senior account manager having to bunk with a junior member of the sales team and unsurprisingly, they were openly complaining. At Wanderlust Marriage we believe in getting great rooms and great flights at excellent prices. This means employees are comfortable, ready to work and don’t complain about their company at out of town work functions. We’ve booked business trips for clients all over the world- from Washington, D.C. to Vienna, Singapore, Beijing, London, New York and beyond. And we’d love your business too.

 

Saving Small Businesses Money on Travel

We charge a nominal and simple flat fee of $30 per flight and hotel booking. By not taking a percentage commission, our incentive is to find you the best rates so you utilize our services again. It’s popular to see travel sites use slogans like “no booking fees,” but they are taking a percentage of the booking, otherwise they wouldn’t be in business. If you only use one, two or even three websites to book your travels, you’re not usually getting the best deal. We frequently save clients hundreds, and even thousands on international bookings by scouring the web and not playing favorites with booking sites. So consider utilizing the services of travel experts who have twice attended the New York Times Travel Show with press passes and World Travel Market in London.

No matter your travel needs, we can save you money. Contact Alex Kallimanis at alex@wanderlustmarriage.com or call me at +1-857-919-9327 to discuss your trip.
