AirPlus International Releases Survey Results on Travel Alternatives

ALEXANDRIA, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AirPlus International, a global provider of corporate travel payment solutions, releases the June edition of The Wire…from AirPlus on the topic of Travel Alternatives. The report found that teleconferencing and web-conferencing are increasingly being used as alternatives at 81% and 71% respectively. While over half did agree that virtual meetings are as effective as meeting in person, it is interesting that 25% believed that it is rarely or almost never as effective. The top two weighted reasons cited for turning to travel alternatives included increased travel costs and decreased budgets. For more complete details, including a free PDF of the results, please visit our online community.
