So what is the definition of business travel agent?
Business travel agents (also known as corporate travel agents or travel management companies) help organisations manage their business travel. Most business travel agents will provide a self booking tool, which allows bookers and travellers to book trips themselves, along with a more traditional service where people can book by phone or email.
Additional services are also provided by a travel management company to help organisations control their business travel spend such as data analytics, consultancy, security & risk management and account management.
