Corporate Travel Safety And Well-Being 101 – Egencia Nederland

Government travel alerts and advisories are necessary due to political unrest, disease outbreaks, quarantine measures and other issues specific to a particular area.

Make sure that you’re aware of every government alert and advisory. It’s important to be proactive and stay informed throughout the cycle of what is happening.

Government-issued travel alerts generally involve short-term immediate risks, like an expected worker’s strike, or can be abrupt but have longer-term impacts, like natural disasters. Travel advisories are frequently issued, whether it’s a short-term impact or an extended risk involved in travelling to an area, like ongoing political unrest. We’ve pulled together information on four ways you can use travel advisory data to help your travellers.

For emerging situations, Egencia proactively posts daily alerts for travel managers on the Egencia home page and in Travel News. This allows travel managers to update their travel policy in near real time to keep travellers informed of any changes. Egencia also pushes detailed alerts to travellers on the Egencia mobile app within an hour of when an event has happened or is expected to occur.

For ongoing risk, travel managers have the ability to flag certain regions or destinations as out of policy, which we’ll talk more about below.

Then there are novel situations like the COVID-19 pandemic, where the risk is complex and highly fluid. Egencia® Travel Advisor gives travellers, arrangers and travel managers on-demand access to up-to-date information on regulations and requirements for travel based on origin, destination and country issue of passport, so travellers can make informed decisions in the moment.
