Corporate Group Travel Study: 113 Travelers from 47 Different Locations

We have created a new Corporate Group Travel Study. This time, it is the biggest one we have run through our systems so far. We helped one of our clients to bring 113 travelers from 47 different origins together! Imagine how long it would have taken to do this analysis manually.

Our last Corporate Group Travel Study with 41 travelers from 31 different starting locations was actually part of our pitch at the Business Travel Show where we won the Disrupt Award 2018 for showcasing some real innovation that could have a profound effect on the business travel space, as stated by the judges.

After having analyzed around 4 million flight options, it is not necessarily surprising that it is cheaper to fly 65 people to Washington than 113 to anywhere else.

Corporate Group Travel Study Outcome: Despite having 47 people out of 113 being based in Washington, DC it is cheaper to bring all to Istanbul or Bali than bringing the rest of the group to Washington for a 7 day workshop.
