Business Travel Management: How do our travel & hosting deals work?
As business travel agent, we make group deals accessible for bed & breakfast and flight/train suggestions.
We then access subsidies, grants or simply award sponsorship to support the internationalization of selected enterprises; as discounts from 50% up to 75% or travel grants up to €1.200,- (only for European companies on ELAN events). Most instruments, subsidies or reimbursement mechanisms require that each company pays directly for its own travel and accommodation. You pay for a fixed fee on accommodation with your BiTour booking – although you might get a much better hotel as we look for sponsors to improve your stay and add a star to your experience. Estimate from €700,- to €1.200,- on international flights from Europe to Latin America. Although we provide international travel booking suggestions, this you should pay yourself as soon as possible. Local transport and excursions during the tech trade mission dates are included.
Book your stay between €120,- and €200,- for 4 nights on BiTour in Colombia. You should see this reflected when booking this BiTour.
