For any business looking to expand its international audience, or to maintain its existing global client list, expenses incurred in international business dealings can be fairly substantial.
International business can equate to an extensive amount of travelling, whether by plane, train or auto-mobile. With the added scrutiny felt largely by high ranking officials within the public sector when it comes to expenses, now is perhaps a timely opportunity to reduce such costs.
Corporate travel agents who specialise in business travel needs may be an ideal option. These companies are able to provide discounted fares to their business customers, as well as offering advice and suggestions with regards to meetings and conference venues, thus saving you and your business time and money.
For many, the prospect of flying across the globe to build and develop client relationships is not a feasible financial or logistical option. In such cases, making contact via telephone is a cheaper alternative, however, it can still demand a hefty chunk of the company funds. In order to bring down your international phone bill it is advisable to shop around for a good deal on cheap international calls.
There are many services on offer for business customers, with prices starting from as little as 1p per minute for calls to various countries. In most cases, you are able to retain your existing number and provider. By simply calling the access numbers (numbers individual to each country and provided by the service provider), you can activate the discounted call rates.
