3 ways to help employees travel with confidence

February 04, 2022

The GBTA CWT Global Business Travel Forecast predicts rising prices across air, ground and hotels in 2022, leading many travel buyers to focus on savings. But price alone won’t always lead your program to success.

Ultimately, you’ll need to strike a balance between employee wellbeing, your company’s performance, and the environment.

While eager to hit the road again, many travelers need additional reassurance around wellbeing and safety. Here are three steps to equipping your travelers with the knowledge they need to get back to business.

Stay ahead of the curve

CWT’s Return to Travel Dashboards are designed with the travel manager in mind. They provide daily COVID-19 risk and travel restriction information from multiple sources in one location, combined with globally consolidated CWT-booked travel data.

Also, our trip approval services are simple to implement and even easier to use. They provide effortless travel management as you set the rules and we manage the bookings. Plus, employee wellbeing is supported as trips are reviewed and approved before booking. Best of all, it provides a personalized experience giving employees the confidence to return to travel.

Checklists and tools

Ensure you are providing tools that keep your traveling employees in the know about cancellations and potential dangers when traveling. The Return to Travel Checklist is designed to help travelers prepare for, and minimize, risk during their trip.

CWT Travel Essentials allows travelers and travel arrangers to find up-to-the-minute information about travel advisories, restrictions, and procedures of a destination country. It is accessible via myCWT web, app and the CWT global website.

And with just one click travelers can contact their CWT counselor anytime, anywhere.

Simplify the booking process

Travelers want a simple and individualized business travel booking experience that matches what’s on offer when they travel for leisure. myCWT is an omni-channel platform and, with the added benefit of profile integration, offers personal preferences. The platform gives travelers an effortless booking experience, providing flexibility, booking functions and information at their fingertips.

CWT continues to launch new features within myCWT to simplify travel management for you and your traveling employees.
