Overhauling travel & expense policies: New corporate priorities and traveler expectations


Predicted price increases, new traveler expectations and a growing focus on sustainability are requiring organizations to rethink how they manage business travel, communicate policies and control costs. Companies and employees are bringing a new understanding of the value of face-to-face meetings and business travel to this unchartered environment.

How are company leaders balancing the need to control costs against traveler demands for flexibility? How are they balancing calls for productivity against the return on investment of face-to-face interactions?

Mastercard worked with the BTN Group to survey two cohorts: travel decision-makers at large companies, and business travelers who take six or more business trips a year.

In this white paper, we discuss: 

  • What is new in T&E policies
  • The drive for compliance and cost savings
  • The importance of sustainability and “duty of care”
  • What business traveler want in T&E policies
  • Key booking policies for air and ground transportation, food and lodging, and payments and expense management
