At Red Arrow we understand what is important when it comes to Business Travel, because we travel for business ourselves. Business travel should be safe, comfortable, efficient and of course, affordable. Traveling for business on Red Arrow is one of the best ways to reduce spending and stay productive. Here are 5 ways Red Arrow can help your business save money:
1. It's less expensive than flying
As we're sure you’re well aware, flying can be expensive. With a costly ticket price, additional fees, parking and/or a taxi, all of this adds up. And if you have to make a last minute trip, flying can cost even more. Red Arrow offers affordable pricing that stays consistent year-round while offering a safe, productive, comfortable and efficient travel experience.
Another cost not often considered with flying is your's or your employee's valuable time. Spending time parking, check-in, security and boarding, hours can be lost before you even depart. At Red Arrow, we have a very simple check-in process that requires travelers to arrive only 15 minutes prior to departure.
2. Don't pay employees to drive
Having employees drive can become quite costly when you calculate the loss of productivity, salaries being paid while driving and adding up mileage expenses - not to mention the safety concerns on the highway. Red Arrow has professionally trained drivers, holds Safety as one of it's Core Values and is commited to getting your employees Safely Home!
Additionally, driving a vehicle does not allow employees to work while they travel an many potentially productive hours can be lost on the road. With complimentary WiFi, power outlets at every seat, and reclining leather seats onboard every bus, employees will be completely productive while travelling.
3. Let a Red Arrow Coach be your office-on-the-go!
One of the greatest features of every Red Arrow luxury coach is the single row privacy seating. This allows for professionals to get a solid amount of work done while they travel. Some travelers use this time to prepare presentations, answer emails, organize notes, or almost anything you could get done in the office. With laptop plugins, 30% more legroom, and fold down table, you or your employees will feel right at home while working from the road.
Of course the luxury features don’t stop there. Our coaches feature reclining leather seats, a complimentary galley with snacks and drinks, armrests, footrests, overhead compartments, satellite radio, and even onboard movies for the worker that needs a break.
4. Pre-pay for your trip and save
