Travel Program Cost Savings


Our client is a resources industry organisation, with a travel spend of approximately $5 million. They were looking to reduce costs in their travel program any way they could.


Implementing a four-fold cost reduction strategy, which included:

  • Process improvements
  • Optimisation of travel spend
  • Supplier negotiations
  • Booking behaviour modification.


  • An airline deal negotiated that saved them approx. $30,000. 
  • A change to airline booking behaviour, from booking fully flexible fares to semi flexible fares types, resulting in an estimated $500,000 saving.
  • Reduced number of bookings made 0-4 days in advance of travel, and moving them to 10+ days. We estimate that this will save 15% of their travel spend over time.
  • Improved online adoption through monthly WebEx user group training, use of a champion OBT user to assist other users, and isolation of divisions/individuals consistently booking offline to address the reasoning behind this. We have seen an increased uptake to 90%.
