Online Corporate Travel Services Grow in Importance.

29th Oct 2001

Increased cuts in travel agency commissions are leading to higher agency fees to corporations for business travel bookings.

Scott Gutz, CEO of e-Travel says that for those corporations with managed travel programs, there is increased value in driving usage of online managed booking tools.

These services provide:

* Lower-cost procurement and fulfillment services for corporations.

* Lower distribution costs for travel suppliers. For example, ticket distribution costs are the fourth largest expense for airlines.
Solutions provided by an online service such as e-Travel reduce these costs by 50% percent or more.

* Reduced administrative burden on travelers who can book online 24x7 with much less hassle than booking over the phone.

As a result, corporate travel agencies can focus their time on enhanced professional services as more bookings move online, thereby reducing time and cost strains on agency staff.
