Corporate Travel Services

Starlings provides a travel booking service to suit the modern lifestyles of business travellers today. We are a small, cost effective and flexible solution to booking travel that takes into account the busy and changing needs of the traveller. If you are a frequent flyer, snowed under with travel and work, but then on top of that, needing need to research and book your own travel for future trips, we can help you.

You won’t be treated as just another booking, you will have a tailored intelligent service that takes into account the time effectiveness of flights and transfers to meetings as well as the cost. Through effective coordination, your itinerary will minimise your travelling time, to maximise your business trip.

According to recent research (Dec 2014), the impact of business travel stress results in an average of 6.9 hours of lost time per trip.

Top stresses highlighted include,

Starlings can help to reduce your travel stresses by working closely with you to find the best flights and bookings for your needs, reducing the inconveniences that occur without the personal attention that we can provide. Whether it is a business class booking utilising frequesnt flyer points, a cheap flight to meet company policies or a last minute flight to ensure you get there. 

We can make changes and be there flexibly alongside you to get you from A to B and then onto C if need be. There will be no additional charges added onto the flight cost, just a transactional cost on each flight which can also be managed on a monthly basis so that the company can plan it into their budget.

We can make your hotel bookings for you, again dependent on whether you want the 5 star or the airport convenience. If you need a car to pick you up we can arrange that and if you are travelling with colleagues, then no problem we can organise it so that you all travel together (if you want to that is).

Services

Starlings can provide business support to your senior executives to enable them to focus on their main roles.  Starlings can help you run the time consuming administrative side of the busy executives work, organising their travel itineraries, accommodation and transfers as well as any additional meetings and functions associated with their trips worldwide. 

Providing virtual pa functions without the inflexibility and cost of employment contracts, we can provide the adaptability to your changing travel and itineraries that is required with fluid plans and unexpected changes, releasing internal time and resources.

Benefits

By outsourcing the auxiliary functions, you can enable the Executives to focus their valuable time on their role and not on organising their travel agendas which can be time consuming and frustrating. We can do all that organisation, whether it is directly with travel suppliers or utilising a centrally outsourced online travel solution.

Contact us today to find out more on 07980 803702.
