Preparation is key – a pre-trip checklist ensures even the most seasoned traveller has everything they need.
Have an authorised booker in place who can override limits on corporate cards, or give the green light to alternative payment methods if needed.
Provide important information and contact details on a physical wallet card as well as in digital format – it never hurts to have back-up.
Keep an eye on the social channels of the Foreign & Commonwealth Office and reputable media outlets to stay abreast of developments – multiple sources of information can provide a clearer picture.
Work with a local contact on the ground – CWT has seven 24 Hour Service Centres in the EMEA region providing support to travellers and travel managers, as well as a further three offering extended hours.
