  • Priority Pass reveals changing demand amongst the UK’s most frequent business travellers
    is being freed up in the business travel market in 2015 with a third 33 of European business travel buyers admitting to having more money to spend The research by Priority Pass backs up these figures showing that the UK s frequent flyers will take an average of 5 8 business trips and 3 5 leisure flights this year This increase in budget however hasn t necessarily been reflected in upgrades to class of travel or accommodation among business travellers Collinson Group s research found that three quarters of frequent business travellers fly Economy and 73 choose not to stay in 4 or 5 star hotels but look to enhance their trips with other benefits Airport lounge access is considered essential or nice to have for 69 of UK frequent business travellers meanwhile nearly half 46 see concierge services as essential or nice to have Just under half 48 of UK frequent business travellers would also consider upgrading their seat on a flight using travel miles or points or by paying extra Frequent business travellers are also more engaged than leisure travellers in seeking experience led holidays For example 66 look to experience different cultures over half choose holidays where they can be pampered and 41 actively seek locations which are off the beaten track The research highlights a number of opportunities for business travel providers and for internal corporate travel teams Frequent business travellers are much more loyal to their preferred airline 61 than general travellers 39 but show less loyalty to hotel groups suggesting that hoteliers who can offer enhancements such as access to arts and cultural events to fine dining and wines or spas can attract and retain these valuable customers Hotels could also offer more family oriented benefits which bridge business and leisure travel such as organised excursions Companies offering these benefits to frequent travellers can motivate hard working employees who are often away from their families and reduce the stress of business travel with relatively cost effective but valued rewards Frequent business travellers are active users of technology This group use many more smartphone apps than leisure travellers Fifty five percent use music apps compared with just 38 of general travellers and 68 use shopping apps compared with only 49 of leisure travellers Finding new ways to add value and share information with business travellers via smartphones is also an area where hotels and airlines can increase loyalty Errol McGlothan General Manager Priority Pass commented Business travellers have revealed a strong desire for experiences to enhance their travel experience such as access to airport lounges concierge services and upgrades They are also keen to extend the benefits from their business trips to improve the experience of travel with their families for example using points to ensure they can book plane seats together for their families when on holiday McGlothan continued Business travel is a powerful moment of truth for many brands from financial services to telecoms providers and indeed travel providers We re seeing more
