How Selective Can Help with Rising Travel Costs

We are here to support you

According to a recent survey in conjunction with GBTA, corporate travel costs are forecasted to continue rising for the rest of 2022 and throughout 2023. Key drivers for these price hike include rising fuel prices, labour shortages, and inflationary pressures as found in the survey.

Findings predict that air fares will increase by 8.5%, hotel rates by 8.2%, and car rental charges by 6.8% in 2023. This is on top of predicted major price hikes in 2022 for air fares (48.5%), hotel rates (18.5%) and car rental charges (7.3%). Hire rates had already seen a major jump in 2021 with a 5.1% increase. The cost for meeting and events is also predicted to rise with the cost-per-attendee increasing by 25% in 2022 and a further 7% in 2023. 

With these increases in mind, you may be wondering how your TMC can support you during a more expensive future in travel.
