100,000$ in Travel Savings Was Missed!


100,000$ in Travel Savings Was Missed!

One of Moonline TMC’s corporate clients had a chance of saving 100,000$ on their 2015 travel budget but they missed it!


According to a study by Carlson Wagonlit Travel, if corporations make bookings 14 days or more before the departure date of the flight, on average, 200$ can be saved per ticket.


We have made an extensive research on one of our corporate clients which had 500,000$ in travel spend with Moonline TMC that summed up to a total of 691 tickets and some very interesting results have been achieved:

  • 72.5% of all bookings were made in the 14 day window (less than 14 days from departure date)
  • 27.5% of all bookings were made more than 14 days from departure date


After analyzing the data we found out that if those bookings were made outside the 14 day window 100,000$ could have been saved which is 20% of the overall travel spend!


In the Iraqi market, corporations are very focused on receiving the highest discounts and don’t care much about other ways of saving travel spend which are much more effective than discounts.


On average a corporate client can receive between 5-15$ discount per ticket, while by working with experts you can save much more by taking different approaches to saving money for the corporations and this is where Moonline TMC excels. Combining these different approaches Moonline TMC helps their corporate clients save money and reduce travel spend.
