Traveller safety update from our preferred partners - hotel and car hire

CT_Hotel
When managing business travel, duty of care and your travellers’ wellbeing should always be at the forefront. None of us want to put our staff members at risk, and no business travel is worth sacrificing a traveller’s safety. It’s for this reason that many companies chose to implement company-wide travel bans in 2020, and continue to enforce them into 2021. For many companies, however, essential business travel must continue to happen.

So as countries and businesses continue to take measures to contain and control the outbreak, how can you ensure your staff's safety when they travel? At Corporate Traveller we have a series of preferred hotel and ground transport partners that we work with. At times like these when there is uncertainty in the world around travel, our preferred partners are keeping the safety of our customers at the forefront of their minds. We’ve rounded up some of the key ways our hotel and ground transport partners are working to support customers and safeguard their wellbeing.
