Research Snapshot: COVID-19 – Travel policy post-pandemic

Flexibility and simplicity are important for traveling employees when it comes to the future of travel policy.

We asked business travelers what travel policy options they consider important to travel post-pandemic.

Here’s what they said:

Two-thirds think business travel needs to be discretionary: employees should have freedom to decide whether to travel or not.

Simple approval process and prioritizing direct or non-stop flights made it to the top-three of the preferred travel policy options: more than a half of respondents consider these important. 4 in 10 propose mandatory vaccination for business travelers.

Frequent travelers who hit the road at least once a month would like to have extras when flying, such as preferred seating or lounge access: 51% of frequent travelers say this is important, in comparison to 38% of those who travel less often.
