Business Travelers Expect a Squeeze on Expenses

OH, this is shaping up as a jolly time for business travelers. Not only will they be under pressure to generate more business on each trip, their travel arrangements may be more spartan.
At least that is the expectation of Susan K. Gurley, the executive director of the Association of Corporate Travel Executives, and other travel industry experts as well. Employers, said Ms. Gurley, “are going to basically say, ‘You should be lucky to have a job, and if it means staying in a less expensive hotel or doubling up or taking a more uncomfortable flight, so be it.’ ”
