Organizations looking to create a corporate travel policy from scratch or to augment or audit an existing policy can now visit http://www.ovationtravel.com/sample_travel_policy to access an automated online tool which generates customized, editable sample travel policy documents at the click of a button.
Ovation Corporate Travel, the 5th largest travel management agency in the U.S. by volume, according to Business Travel News, developed the custom travel policy generator to serve as a complimentary travel resource for any organization looking to develop a custom travel policy. Ovation’s proprietary tool generates individualized, editable documents in Microsoft Word format. Each sample travel policy’s custom content is based upon a user’s responses to an online questionnaire.
Using the tool, thousands of document variations can be generated, based upon the user’s preferences for their organization. Each customized document includes the following basic travel policy categories:
− Statement of Purpose
− Booking Guidelines/Procedures
− Air & Rail Travel Policies
− Lodging/Accommodations Policies
− Rental Car Policies
− Meal Reimbursement Policies
“Whether you’re a startup looking to formalize an appropriate travel policy for your growing business or an existing organization whose travel policy might date back a decade or so, this tool is going to be useful for you,” noted Executive Vice President, Michael Steiner. “We’ve covered the brass tacks of a corporate travel policy with this generator. These are the must-have categories every policy should include, and based upon a user’s answers to the questionnaire, there are thousands of variations in the document you’re going to get in return. It’s incredibly customized and at the same time, it’s really just a starting point for a complete travel and entertainment policy.”
Ovation services over 700 clients, including over 225 financial services firm clients and over 200 law firms through its law firm-focused subsidiary, Lawyers Travel.
