Skift Take

If vacation packages and compensation are up for negotiation, then why not travel expenses, too? With the growing importance of ancillary services when traveling, these perks logically are entering the conversation.

DID you know that one of the things that some job seekers are now negotiating is to what extent they will be exempt from strict corporate travel policies about what can and cannot be expensed on the road? I had no idea, but as soon as I heard, it made sense.

“It’s sort of funny that your travel policy would be one of the things that you might negotiate now as you’re looking for a new job — assuming you have a good track record of success, especially on the sales side,” said Suzanne Neufang, the general manager of GetThere, a corporate travel reservations and expense management company.
