Imagine wasting 400 hours of your life? In 400 hours a person can walk from Paris to Minsk or from Copenhagen to Naples. As it turns out it also takes about 400 hours for travel buyers to secure discounted rates during the Request For Proposal (RFP) season, that time of year when corporate travel buyers think about their hotel rate programme for the next 12 months.

Everyone likes a deal. No matter what you’re buying – or how much money you have – a deal’s a deal. The sweetest deal of all is one where you don’t even have to lift a finger. No haggling. No comparison shopping. No need to set up a vigil as you religiously check whether prices have come down enough for you to make that purchase—before it sells out.

Going through airport security can be unnerving, especially if the line is huge and you're running late. We've all been there, but be careful how you handle stress during the security process. Losing your temper can have serious consequences.

The percentage of business travelers who book hotels within their corporate travel programs has hovered around 50% - 60% for years. Travel managers told GBTA one reason is that their travelers want to stay at a different type of property than what’s available in their program. Another big reason?

A couple of weeks ago, a colleague played us a video of Japanese organizing guru Marie Kondo working her magic.
