Travel is complex. But where there is complexity, there is great hidden value.
Business travelers get access to more of this hidden value than leisure travelers. They spend more money and travel more often, which is fuel for opportunity. Airline and hotel loyalty programs are designed specifically for these frequent travelers.
With so many opportunities to save and travel better, you would expect to see many corporate travel managers delivering exceptional value. But you don’t.
No other corporate travel manager guarantees savings over retail.
They also do not help with credit card rewards, loyalty benefits, airline miles, hotel points, visa requirements, localized emergency support or airport lounge access.
The industry is in this state because corporate travel managers rely on hidden commissions and cannot afford to help in situations that do not pay commissions.
For example, if Kayak has the best price for an itinerary, but Kayak will not pay commissions, a travel manager will not offer the Kayak price. Instead, they will provide a higher price from a source that will pay commissions.
The same applies to expertise. Even if customers can benefit from credit card rewards, loyalty programs, and elite status, a travel manager will not build expertise in these areas because they do not pay commissions. It is an unfortunate situation.
At Flightfox, we are solving this by being transparent with fees. We focus purely on becoming genuine experts in travel and maximizing the value we deliver to you.
