Accommodation: 5 tips for your next business trip

The reopening of borders and the advancement of vaccination around the world have allowed more corporate travelers to resume their international travel routines.

We have the largest corporate travel services marketplace in India and, therefore, for your accommodation reservation to be made intelligently, you will also be able to compare rates for the same hotel room, across different channels, portals, and players.

The advantages of national reservations come from international travel, allowing your employees to have more practicality in their requests and your company to maintain broad visibility for even more efficient travel management.

To help you on your next corporate trip, check out our tips for traveling well and with peace of mind!

Advance purchase
Unlike buying airline tickets, hotel room rates are less sensitive to advance notice. However, the rule also applies to those who want to stay for work: the sooner you make your reservation, the greater the chances of getting the availability of rooms and lower rates.

Avoid periods of high occupancy
Be careful not to book hotels in cities that are hosting cultural or sporting events. During this period, the trend is for hotels to raise their daily rates to accommodate guests arriving at the venue to participate in these meetings.

Check if your rate allows change or cancellation
Some hotels work with promotional rates that are, in most cases, more
restrictive than generic rates.

This means that if you make a request to book a hotel at a promotional rate, it is unlikely that you will be able to change the date of travel or cancel it, without the hotel charging a fine from the company.

The fine, as in the logic of buying airline tickets, is usually a portion or,
in most cases, the full rate of the daily rate already booked.

Check the category and type of bed booked
Hotels often offer apartments with different bed configurations. Pay attention to the common nomenclature of booking channels and hotels, in Brazil and worldwide.

Twin bed : apartment with single beds
Double bed : apartment with double bed
When making a reservation, you will also need to select the available apartment category. For categories with more structure, comfort or service benefits (welcome kits, priority check-in, etc.), expect a higher rate than standard/standard rooms.

Courtesy and treats:
Some hotels offer complimentary coffee or mineral water for each guest. If this happens, these items are usually available on the main bench in your apartment, or on the bedside tables next to your bed. If in doubt whether the item is free or not, check with reception.

Minibar items are rarely offered free of charge. Also, due to their convenience,
most of them have an average cost well above market prices.
