According to one U.S. travel agency, the price of rental cars, hotels and airlines has increased in the first quarter of 2016. In America, the average flight is now $8 more expensive and hotels were $3 more expensive, which of course affects business travellers all over the world.
Despite this, business travel adds billions every year to UK trade, and has been cited as a driver of economic growth, according to the Guild of Travel Management Companies (GTMC). It’s particularly important for places like Jersey which are cut off from mainland Europe.
In one study commissioned by the GTMC, a 1% increase in business travel would lead to an extra £390 million for the UK economy. That means factors like airport expansion should be considered more urgently.
