While we have special expertise in uncovering low-cost business travel options, we also have extensive experience arranging executive-level travel. We work with airlines, hotels, car services and others to make sure that your executives travel exactly like they want to travel. In fact, we work to surpass their expectations with our exceptional attention to detail, e.g. to make sure flights are upgraded, a hotel stocks a favorite type of bottled water, or a favorite driver is assigned.
Our travel planning services offer a one-stop source for finding and booking complete travel arrangements-from air travel to hotels and ground transportation-and then deliver tickets directly to your company. Your travelers can call us or use our online travel request form (accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week). We research and make reservations on major and non-major carriers (such as Southwest Airlines, JetBlue and SunCountry, which many travel agencies refuse to book). And if a traveler wants to make online reservations, we offer an online reservation service you can use day or night that we then review for lowest fares and corporate travel policy compliance. In addition, we help you manage your travelers' frequent flier programs and assist travelers with international travel matters such as passports and visas. For executives traveling business and first-class, we also bring extensive experience in providing highly attentive travel arrangements that make sure no detail is missed. And when your travelers' travel plans change, we're available to help you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
You (and those within your company that you designate as having access) will have access to, or have regularly delivered, a variety of useful free reports to track travel expenditures. We also can customize reports to meet your company's particular needs and even help consult on the development of travel policies based on your goals and experiences, plus negotiate rates for high-volume accounts.
Here are some examples of reports that we can provide you with to keep track of your travel and travel expenses. Please click here to view a comprehensive list.
In addition to arranging individual travel for your corporate travelers, ETC offers extensive expertise in arranging group meetings and conferences for your staff or customers. Like our traditional travel services, you will find that we focus on making sure you secure the best prices while still offering attentive service to make sure the conference or meeting occurs exactly as you envisioned it.
