Business travel trends 2018: A bright start for Clarity

Clarity, Business Travel Trends 2018 - Clarity Travel Management

Happy New Year! We hope everyone is feeling rested after the Christmas break. Here at Clarity, we are back, feeling bright and positive about what’s ahead in 2018. The start of a new year in many cultures represents a new beginning, so we thought we’d take a quick look at what lies ahead for the business travel community:


Planes, Trains and Marginal gains


Early last month we launched our research report in conjunction with Business Travel IQ where we explore the impact marginal gains can have on your bottom line. Now that the investigations have been carried out and the results are in, we’re looking forward to sharing our findings and helping clients turn those marginal gains into high impact savings.

Watch out for the Clarity product suite


With a number of award winning products and systems already available to our clients, we look to the future and how we can improve the client experience. New tracking tools, improvements to our MI and online booking enhancements are just a few developments we have planned for 2018.


Speaking of award winning…


The Business Travel Awards are happening this month and Clarity have been shortlisted in four categories, more than any other travel management company. Aside from award ceremonies, we have a number of exciting events to look forward to; the Business Travel Show at Olympia London, where we will be showcasing our biggest and brightest stand to date and work is already underway in preparation for our 10th annual Client Conference.

Revolutionising data


With the help of our newly appointed Head of Management Information, we have big BIG plans for data. 2018 will see us looking past the hype of MI and really mining into the insights of traveller behaviour and how we can use the information to generate savings.


Security is key


GDPR, cybersecurity, duty of care… all remain hot topics as we head into the new year. Political upheavals, natural disasters, and cyber-attacks are all real risks organisations have to consider and it’s our duty as business travel agents to ensure that the safety and security of our clients is paramount in all aspects of our business.

And yes, Brexit is still on the agenda…


Regardless of where your business travel takes you, Brexit is bound to be a key talking point for months, even years to come. We’ll be keeping a close eye on developments and sharing our industry insights with you along the way.


We’re getting social


It’s hard to avoid social media these days. The term ‘Bleisure’ is fast becoming a topic of interest, with more and more people using their business travel experiences to share photos and updates across their own personal channels, inspiring friends and family.
