The Offshore Optimizer
With Travel & Expense being one of the biggest strains on an organization’s budget, now more than ever is the time to review your travel costs.
It is important to partner with a travel company that has energy fare contracts with major carriers around the world. This allows for substantial savings, in some cases over 40%. Energy Fares are valid for travelers going to a vessel, offshore rig, land rig, wind farm, and much more. Additionally, anyone traveling in connection with work on a vessel, rig, or energy related site would also qualify for Energy Fares. If you are not taking advantage of these substantial discounts, you could be missing out on huge savings.
It's no secret that the world of energy related travel is a 24/7/365 business. Having the flexibility to change and/or cancel without penalties is another important perk of Energy Fares.
We also know that in many cases, energy related travelers may need to carry tools or extra baggage when traveling. For that reason, most Energy Fare contracts allow for additional baggage at no extra cost.
One of the most important things to a traveler is the accrual of frequent flyer miles and status earnings. Of course, airlines realize this, and that is why the accrual of frequent flyer miles is allowed even when traveling on an Energy Fare ticket. Let’s not forget advanced seat assignments. No one wants to travel in a middle seat. With Energy Fare bookings, advance seats assignments are allowed.
Energy Fares provide substantial savings, offer the flexibility to change or cancel without penalties, additional baggage at no additional cost, travelers accrue frequent flyer miles and can confirm advanced seat assignments. If your company is not taking advantage of contracted Energy Fares, you are missing out on the possibility of saving thousands of dollars.
