From inception, XL Sandown Travel Corporate Services has followed a vision of creating unique programs for our travellers and the companies they represent. We understand how the complexities of travel are affected by company cultures. As the needs of our clients and their employees have evolved, we have customised our programs to provide a new direction for our corporate partners.
What distinguishes our Corporate Services from others is the fact that every program we design incorporates Solutions, Services and Savings. We tailor our programs to fulfil your specific requirements.
Just as we have helped thousands of companies throughout the years, our Corporate Services will help you build a travel program that continually evolves and optimises efficiency.
Sandown Travel is committed to the principles and implementation of Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment. In terms of the codes of good practice, Sandown Travel has a Level 1 rating.
Whether it’s Travel Policy Compliance, Carbon Reporting or Cost Management; we can offer a host of standard reports or we can tailor-make your reporting to give you complete access to all your travel spend. Ensuring you can proactively manage both the expenses and social responsibilities within your organisation.
If you have employees who travel, it’s your obligation to know where they are and how you can communicate with them should a trip disruption occur. We provide you with the tools to fully manage a traveller support system, loaded with powerful travel risk management and communication platforms. Including Travel Alerts, business travellers need to be armed with useful and relevant REAL TIME data when trip disruptions occur.
On-the-go travellers don’t have time to mess around with clunky laptops and slow work computers. With mobile access to all your travel details and expenses, you can easily check your itinerary, capture and upload transactions and receipts, add car mileage, check the weather and more. Enjoy easy access to up-to-date information delivered right to your smartphone – creating a better travel experience
We offer a number of online booking tools, selected on what solution is best for your organisation and configured to your organisation’s needs – from a single instant-booking tool, right through to a more complex system that incorporates your own travel policy and electronic approval mechanism. Whatever your requirements, we are confident we have the right online solution to suit your needs.
