Canadian business travellers reveal their predictions as the roads and skies open up.
Nearly all Canadian business travellers (95%) expect norms and practices to change and evolve. While 33% expect enforced quarantine upon arrival and 24% plan to avoid airports in major cities, 66% do not expect to routinely limit attendance to events and conferences.
More than 2 in 5 say health and safety is their top priority while travelling for business—more than three times as many who prioritize business needs. Additionally, the trip itself is likely to be anxiety-inducing, from arriving at the airport to the flight, to staying at a hotel.
And Canadian business travellers want tech that can keep up. Their wish list of mobile app features when travel resumes includes mobile check-in (52%), followed by traveller safety information (38%) the ability to book air travel (38%), and the ability to view and manage their trip itinerary (36%).
