Roaming Travel Alerts from Travelocity Business Keep Corporate Travelers Informed on the Road

SOUTHLAKE, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Travelocity Business(R) today unveiled a unique package of alert services for business travelers, ensuring road warriors are informed about required international travel documents, unexpected flight alterations and on-the-ground events at destinations. Travelocity Business, a full-service corporate travel management company, offers multi-national companies a compelling combination of best-in-class automation with a complete array of traditional travel management services.

The Roaming Travel Alerts serve a larger purpose of reducing the annoying “surprise” elements that often play a role in business trips, particularly journeys to international destinations. Corporations working with Travelocity Business today benefit from the agency’s ongoing focus on improving the business travel experience; these convenient alerts represent the next step in easing the hassle factors associated with business travel.

The alert package includes:

International Document Alert – The International Document Alert lets travelers know what documents they’ll need for an upcoming international trip. Users can instantly access their company’s preferred visa and passport provider, based on that specific trip and their country of residence and citizenship. Single sign-on functionality guides travelers and travel arrangers to the exact page they need with a single click, and the same information is also available to Travelocity Business agents for when a reservation is booked offline.

Flight Alert – Addressing an age-old challenge for travelers, the Flight Alert helps passengers when their flight plans go awry via delay or cancellation. Travelocity Business thoroughly reviews the traveler’s itinerary to establish a best alternative, makes the reservations and informs the traveler via email and/or their smart phone. The Flight Alert takes the traveler out of the mad scramble to beat long lines, and eliminates the need to wait on hold while calling airline reservation offices.

Travel Alert – With smaller companies increasingly joining established brands in sending travelers to all corners of the globe in the quest for new revenue, the Travel Alert provides a complementary element to any company’s risk management program. From scheduled elections to random political demonstrations, on-the-ground events can quickly impact travel plans. Whenever a situation arises that affects a company’s travelers, the Travel Alert delivers timely information about the issue to the traveler, and provides contact information so they can respond accordingly.

“Companies want their employees focused on business on the road, not their itineraries,” said DeAnne Dale, vice president of sales and account management for Travelocity Business. “These relevant and timely messages are not only convenient for travelers on the road, but helpful as they prepare for a trip. With 87 percent of our trips booked online, the Roaming Travel Alerts are a great enhancement for travelers who increasingly remain accessible via their mobile devices wherever they go.”
