Specialising in arranging corporate travel, CT Business Travel is experiencing a significant uplift in reservations for domestic rail travel.
When it comes to travelling long distances within the UK many business travellers opt to fly, as in many cases there’s not a lot of difference in the cost of business flights when compared to travelling by train, or that is certainly the way it can be perceived.
However, like the general public, the business traveller is becoming savvier in knowing how to seek out the best available rail ticket deals. Often, the price of a rail ticket can be substantially cheaper if a reservation can be made a few days/weeks in advance. In addition, using the travel management services of CT Business Travel means they work hard to secure the best priced tickets available and make the whole booking process easy and stress free. With their access to superior technology compared to the general public, CT Business Travel is able to perform one simple search across all UK train operators that identifies and recommends the best operator to use on a certain route, at the time specified by the client, but most importantly at the cheapest price.
There are many benefits why travelling by train is better than flying - train stations are more widely available and more centrally located within each UK town and city, no check-in or security procedures to go through and travelling by train reduces a person’s eco footprint.
Mark Kempster, CT Business Travel’s Managing Director commented, “Interestingly the increases we’re experiencing in our rail bookings are not coming from just one source as the uplift is attributable to both existing client accounts and newly acquired clients”.
UNIGLOBE member CT Business Travel has been trading for over 21 years and is one of the largest independent business travel agents in the UK providing corporate travel services to an impressive range of national and international clients.
