900 Companies Seek DialAFlight's Help to Cut Travel Costs

Dépèche transmise le 24 février 2010 par PRNewswire

LONDON, February 24, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Award winning travel company DialAFlight announced today that almost 900 companies have requested their help in slashing corporate travel costs.

DialAFlight, which is one of the two largest UK flight retailers, has huge buying power with airlines and hotel groups and claims that in most cases it can help a company make considerable savings to its travel spending.

It was the only travel firm to be listed in this year's Sunday Times top 250 survey of the most successful independent UK companies. It is the sixth year running that the GBP300 million turnover company has been listed.

A company spokesman said: 'We have noticed a huge surge in companies looking hard at their costs since the beginning of the current downturn. Some had actually been buying their travel quite well but others have managed to save themselves thousands of pounds simply by changing the way they buy.

The company uses a different business model to the traditional business travel agency which normally offers a month's credit or payment by the 15th of the month.

'If you're wanting to arrange, say, flights to Orlando ( ), then travel is paid for as it is booked - often with a company credit card or Amex card or the company is set up with a monthly account with a third party fulfilment company. This means you can get your cheap flights to Orlando, as well as booking your hotel and car at the same time.'

'The biggest hurdle is persuading the companies to move away from their traditional credit system,' said the spokesman. 'But usually when they understand how much they can save then they bite the bullet and after that they never go back.'

'A company which came to us recently was spending about a million pounds a year but was reluctant to give up their current way of working until we explained to them that they could save themselves between GBP40,000 and GBP70,000 annually. The most they could have expected to earn on their credit arrangements was under GBP4000'.
