Inntel – cutting your travel and hotel costs

The Travel Plan Club asks “Is your company still using travel warrants? Do your staff just turn up at the station and get a roll-up price ticket on the company plastic?”

Andrew Budd says of his own experience when booking train trips for hiking in Scotland “You could be paying well over the odds for your journey, with some standard journey tickets up to five times the discount price”.

“Do your employees sometimes stay in hotels? Again, there are some excellent deals out there – are you taking advantage of the best prices, or are the hotels taking advantage of the busy-ness of your business?”

“And how much of your staff time is being taken up searching on the internet for best deals for travel and accommodation, and dealing with travel related paperwork?”

We are all asking questions like these at our businesses, as we seek to make cost savings. Essex County Council had staff in various departments carrying out these tasks, and took a look around at alternative ways of purchasing travel tickets and booking hotels. They chose local company INNTEL who are based near Kelvedon.

Inntel’s Marion Carter and Simon New came to the recent Travel Plan Club Event, and set out what they can offer. Follow the link above to their website, and give if you would like to know more give Marion a call on 07711 939026 or email her at  marion.carter@inntel.co.uk.
