MHNSAVES.COM launches MHNSAVES for Business focusing on small business customers travel needs. With the convenience of easy online booking, dedicated customer support, absolute best hotel and car rental rates as compared to other travel supplier sites, and without the additional costs and fees that are associated with online travel agencies or travel management companies. In addition to these services, booking through MHNSAVES.COM will allow customers to earn not only their hotel loyalty points, but also at least 5% cash back rebates or up to 30% instant savings through MHNSAVES.COM for hotels and cash back for car rentals throughout the US.
Business Travel is a multi-billion dollar business. In 2009 North American businesses spent $48.2 Billion on domestic air travel, let alone hotels and cars. Based upon a Replicon study, typical travel spend components consists of Flights (40%), hotel stay (22%), car rentals / transport (19%), food & beverage (12%), phone (2%), parking (2%), and entertainment (2%).
In today’s economic times, businesses need to be very careful when choosing travel expenses for their employees. Hotel stays accounts for app. 22% of the total travel spend. Excluding airfares, the hotel stays accounts for app. 52%, of the typical business traveler's daily dollar, with food consuming about 30 percent. While many large companies are financially able to outsource their employee’s travel expenses, small businesses generally do not have the financial capability or resources to enjoy the same luxury. In an effort to provide superior service and benefits to all consumers, but especially to small businesses, MHNSAVES.COM provides not only the best rate for hotel rooms, but the opportunity to earn cash back rebates on top of loyalty points earned with the hotel.
When focusing on hotel stays, businesses have many options to choose from. Larger companies may be financially privileged in outsourcing their travel management operations to a travel management company such as Carlson Wagonlit Travel; many smaller businesses are not able to enjoy that same advantage. Many small businesses book through online travel agencies such as Expedia, Hotels.com, Travelocity, Orbitz and Priceline. This while convenient, relinquishes any loyalty points that may be earned from the brand, along with not being provided with the cheapest rate.
Building successful business relationships is vital to a company’s success, and in a time where technology is booming and communication can be held virtually anywhere, studies have shown that face-to-face communication is more essential and vital to success. A survey by Global Business Travel Association (GBTA), found that 78% of all business travelers believe a face-to-face meeting is more significant and directly impacts the bottom line. A study by Oxford Economics USA indicated a 40 % conversion rate with in-person meeting as opposed to only 16% without.
In a time where consumers and businesses must be even more savvy and intelligent with their spending, MHNSAVES for business is tailored to meet the demands and needs of small business travel. Find out more here
