2016 is coming to an end, but it's definitely not time to take stock just yet, as there's still some good news to come.

The evening was an opportunity for us to understand more about our customers' and partners' views on the business, our values and the Traveldoo ethos.

Is there room for innovation in VAT recovery?

In our previous newsletters, we have explored the potential for companies to recover air miles as a new source of savings. Today we will be covering more familiar territory, but an area that is still under-exploited by companies: recovering VAT on work expenses.

Hipmunk is an SAP company

Hipmunk, who were only formed in 2010, started making a name for themselves by winning at the Phocuswright travel innovation summit in 2011. It really shook the industry into realising how complacent it had become about the travel search user experience. Hipmunk decided to look at things differently and came up with a completely unique (at least at the time) user interface, based on graphical timelines, and a default sort order called “ Agony ” to manage the famously difficult problem of shopping for flights.

The Stars are Smiling

I’m working away from home for several days each week. But that’s OK, I have AirBnB and Uber on my phone and they are great at what they do. Life is just easier with them in the world. One part of their systems that really works is the way they have integrated their ratings system. They have both taken the bold decision that it’s pretty much not optional to rate your previous experience in order to get your next one.

Policy Dynamism

Companies have created, communicated and tried to enforce travel policies for a long time. Certainly a lot longer than most of the technology we use today for business travel has been around. However, even today, many of the company policies that are implemented resemble closely the types of policy ubiquitous in the past, telling travellers, in simple terms, what is “OK”.

Door-to-Snore

Traveldoo is part of the Expedia group and there are some really great discussions across and between the different product departments about “what works” and what the future of travel booking is. The topic of Door-to-Door bookings came up recently, an approach tried in different ways by Rome-to-Rio, KDS and Serko amongst others. Simple idea really, don't impose a shopping experience on people. Do all that leg work for them and just give them a book button.

Mobile T&E - The coming decade of « pretty awesome »

People seem fond of telling the story of the travel industry, especially those who have been around it a while. Unless you were spending a lot of money it must have sucked to travel on business in the 70s, pre-deregulation, with hardly any choice of what kind of experience you wanted
