  • Business travelers are saving by booking in advance, report says
    Business travelers are shying away from last-minute booking and saving more by booking flights in advance, Travel Leaders Corporate says. "We've been able to demonstrate to our clients that they can save significantly on travel expenses by booking their airfare in advance. In fact, since 2010, we have seen a 10% increase in travelers booking 14 or more days prior to their trip. During the same time period, the number of transactions where clients booked less than six days in advance went down 8%," said Travel Leaders President David Holyoke.
