post-covid-travel

Whether you traveled for business weekly or several times a year before the arrival of COVID-19, we assume you are ready to return to travel by now. The entire hospitality industry has missed you. From restaurants to hotels, car services to airlines, we all miss our corporate travelers.

There have been massive adjustments by all of us who provide service for corporate travelers. VIP Connection is proud of our efforts to provide a safe, clean ride.  Using electrostatic sprayers to clean our vehicles, installing partitions between the passenger and chauffeur cabin, disinfecting all passenger touchpoints after each trip are just some of the extra precautions we are taking at this time for our passenger’s and driver’s safety.  A comprehensive list of actions we have taken can be found here: https://vipgts.com/covid19/

With the vaccine being rolled out, now is the time to look ahead to ensure you are ready for a post-COVID return to travel. Now is the time for travel managers to review policies, and technologies during the time of immense change.

With weekly and even daily changes in travel restrictions, suggested quarantines, supplier policies, and emerging solutions announced at every turn, it is important to refresh your policies and even create strategies to stay safe while traveling.

VIP Connection has implemented the best practices for delivering safety and efficiency for our corporate travelers in an ever-evolving travel landscape. From our end, we are ready!

From your end, a travel readiness checklist should be created to ensure your safety. Understand what hotels, airlines and car services are doing to protect you. While there are new challenges that corporate travelers face, there is also is a very bright future ahead.
