Booking tickets during COVID-19 is puzzling
It is good news that, since the outbreak of COVID-19, more and more airlines and international trains are expanding their routes. But in practice it is often puzzling these days, because booking business travel has not always become easier. This has to do with all the changing travel advice, the travel restrictions per country and also the limited number of seats available.
Now that travelling will be different with COVID-19, you may have made various preparations to restart business travel. You can check this on the basis of our white paper, in which we give you various tips. Think about reassessing your travel policy and your Duty of Care, when someone may or may not travel because of health risks and what protective equipment you can make available for employees who are going on the road again.
Because business travel has been rather quiet, there may be a real need for a visit abroad. You are invited for a congress, there is an important meeting that is only possible face to face or your technical employees are needed on the foreign project. As you are used to, contact VCK Travel for the request to this destination and we will take over from you.
After a long period of almost no planes in the air, we see that much more is being flown now. More and more airlines are calling at Schiphol again and more often. What is often not known is that these routes can also be cargo flights. So it looks like there is plenty of travel again, but the planes are not always available for passengers. Fortunately, the supply changes weekly and of course we always have up-to-date information at our disposal.
Not only the limited number of available aircraft or train seats makes booking a ticket a puzzle. Also because there are restrictions everywhere, land borders may or may not be open to foreign guests and travel advice still changes daily. It is possible that your journey to the destination you are always going to will now look completely different. With extra transfers and that you will have to deal with local corona measures. These are real puzzles of which the pieces do not fit together at once. But fortunately you can leave that to our Travel Consultants and you don’t have to figure it out yourself.
