Booking Travel for
Who’s best placed to book business travel?
If there’s one thing small business owners need to avoid, it’s wasting time and money. The smaller the enterprise, the more precious these two commodities are. Booking and organising travel itineraries swallows time like a black hole swallows… well, time, so it’s very important to find ways to make this process as efficient as possible.
So, how should small businesses book travel?
One way (*self-plug alert*) is to make use of one of FCBT’s numerous Business Travel Experts, who specialise in getting small businesses the best bang for their buck. And as far as time goes, all it takes is a quick phone call or email from you to put it all in motion.
Alternatively, you can make use of our HelloFCBT platform, and book your flights and everything else yourself. Bookings only take 2 minutes, and you can expect a whole host of other great features. This include: personal profiles, where preferences can be saved (you’ll never sit in the dreaded middle seat again!); travel alerts; an area to upload your Travel Policy; and flexible payment options, among many, many other things.
And how should small businesses manage travel once it’s booked?
This is where our bespoke business travel app - Sam :] - steps in. Downloadable for free on Android and iOS-powered devices, Sam is the ultimate digital travel companion, consolidating all your itinerary and various on-the-go needs into one, easy-to-use interface.
You can use Sam for things like booking car rental and taxis (including Uber and Lyft), making reservations at hotels and finding local restaurant recommendations, receiving real-time travel alerts, and even reading unique city guides, which are sent to you a week before your trip.
