GARETH LODGE | SECURA MONDE
“I do travel for work, and while it’s currently better than it was two years ago, it’s nowhere near the peak. The amount companies spend on travel has been reduced; it used to automatically be business class.”

SHAFIQ EBRAHIM | BUILDING ZONES
“I think business trips are staying pretty stagnant at the moment. Businesses are spending on technology that allows meetings without the need for travel – firms won’t pay for flights without a real return on the investment.”

ANTOUN MASSAAD | CEDAR ROSE
“I’m actually on a business trip at the moment. But I think companies are still very conscious about the cost of travel, and people are using things like teleconferences a lot more. There are fewer people at international conferences too.”
