Demanding Roles

The sharing economy is raising expectations – for the business traveler and corporate travel programs
The on-demand economy is no longer limited to the consumer space. The simple but innovative concept behind peer-to-peer access has turned into a game-changing trend that is providing business travelers choice and control.

The needs of the industry have drastically changed, and employees want their companies to evolve with them as they more closely align the way they travel for work with the way they travel for leisure. Where there once was the simple business trip model (book airfare or rental car and hotel, car service to airport, etc.), corporate travel programs are now facing much more diverse demands from their traveling teams. This means new players in the on-demand economy have opportunities to strengthen existing travel options and introduce new ones.

More and more the notion of a business travel experience that is differentiated from a leisure travel experience is disappearing, according to Daniel Finkel, strategy and business development director at Egencia, the business travel arm of OTA Expedia.
