What is a travel policy?
A business travel policy is a company’s manual to business travel. The document contains the rules and budgets for business travel and travel related expenses. The level of detail varies for each company and these documents generally grow with the company. Of course there are some general rules of thumb that are common for most businesses, but the parameters of most of these rules are set by the individual company. Over time these rules will be trialed, tested and improved. You are likely to find the following topics covered in a policy document:
- Booking process (timelines, software, etc)
- Budgets (what can you spend on meals, drinks and accommodation)
- Flights (ticket requirements such as budget and class and policy around missing a flight)
- Ground transportation (rules around taxi’s, public transport, car rental and parking)
- Emergency contacts
- Travel insurance policy
- Rules for traveling with a spouse
- Rules for adding leisure time to a trip
- Expense rules (what can and what cannot be claimed)
