?Traditionally, most Australian businesses have a corporate travel policy that allows some flexibility and is enforced at the will of each staff member. However, as the economic downturn continues, BCD Travel is receiving an increasing number of requests from its business travel clients to introduce new, non-negotiable restrictions on their individual booking profiles on the BCD Travel booking system. BCD Travel's booking system allows each business travel client to have their own booking profile containing their preferred suppliers, negotiated rates and other preferences, such as when first class flights are allowed. Corporate travel clients are able to apply as many restrictions as they like to their profile to ensure their staff comply with their company's internal business travel policy. Full reporting is available through the BCD Travel booking system, and these reports can show managers which staff members are booking corporate travel outside policy and what it is costing them. This enables companies to further customise their profile on BCD Travel's booking system so that unsuitable options, such as first class travel for short trips, are not made available to staff on the system. The most common restrictions being implemented by BCD Travel include disallowing first class bookings and limiting the nightly rate allowable on accommodation.
