Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) February 25, 2014
While business travel spending was on the decline in the year 2013, PromoCodesForYou is preparing for a rebound in 2014. “We’ve already seen a significant increase in the number of people using our travel coupons and deals as compared to last year,” explains Joe Graceffa, Co-Founder of PromoCodesForYou. The Global Business Travel Association echoes that sentiment. According to USA Today, “Spending by U.S. businesses is expected to increase by 7.2% next year, to $288.8 billion, with the number of trips taken inching up by 1.6% to 459.2 million.” A key contributor to this increase will be the 12.4% rise in international travel, accounting for $36.6 billion of spending. In addition to the growth in international travel, another major factor in this rebound will be an increased amount of spending on group trips – expected to increase by 7.2% to $124.1 billion.
When it comes to booking your business travel, two main things are important: cost and convenience. With the anticipation of a rise in spending on travel in 2014, PromoCodesForYou is offering tips for savings.
Utilize Rewards Programs
If you are a frequent customer of a company that offers a rewards program, we recommend signing up. While your loyalty is certainly a benefit to these companies, the advantages to the customer are often much greater. Companies like Hertz offer a rewards program that allows customers to save money on each car rental, and even build points toward a free rental in the future. Hotels.com, a site that boasts access to over 240,000 hotels worldwide, offers one free night to customers who have purchased ten (part of their Welcome Rewards Program). Utilizing programs and incentives such as these will dramatically increase savings for your business, and can even benefit future personal travel.
Look for Perks
Often, hotels will offer incentives such as free Wi-Fi, free parking, shuttle service to and from the airport, or a complimentary breakfast, included in your rate for the room. This will save your company money, and will conveniently take care of some of your essential needs in the process. Once you’ve narrowed down your hotel options, check to see how their incentives match up. Travel sites like CheapOStay.com and Hotels.com list these details for each hotel, putting the information right at your fingertips, and making your final decision a bit easier.
Using sites like CheapOAir.com and CheapOStay.com provide the ability to explore a variety of vendors without spending too much time sifting through multiple websites. CheapOAir.com offers a “lowest price guarantee,” with over 450 airlines to choose from, while CheapOStay.com provides a considerable assortment of hotels, with select 4 star hotels under $99. While saving money where possible is certainly in the best interest of your company, the convenience and efficiency of these sites will also help to protect your valued time.
