The Global Business Travel Association is planning to take a closer look at certain elements of a study it released in May partly because of concern that it gives the impression there’s no savings in managing travel.

Based on a survey of 1,788 business travelers, the Global Business Traveler study found that while U.S. business travelers spend $2,740 on average per trip and stay 3.6 nights, “those under mandated programs spend more ($3,663) but stay a fewer number of nights (3.4), compared to those in unmanaged programs ($2,457, 3.9 nights).”
