Corporate travel managers should be encouraged to reach out during the RFP (request for proposal) process and ask for dual rates and other flexibility in pricing, says Quest’s general manager sales Anthea Dimitrakopoulos.
Speaking at Flight Centre’s digital Illuminate event late last week, Dimitrakopoulos says corporates are understandably unable to guarantee room nights like they traditionally could in the past.
Flight Centre managing director Graham ‘Skroo’ Turner admits he may be a ‘bit optimistic’ but predicted yesterday that New Zealand would open its borders to certain places before Christmas.
Speaking during Flight Centre Corporate’s Illuminate virtual event yesterday, Turner noted that Covid was in the community on this side of the Tasman.
‘So there is no reason they can’t open up to fully vaccinated people. Vaccination is the key, perhaps with 72 hour testing as well.’
