The business travel experts

Retail sector travel management.

Our retail sector travel management has changed the game when it comes to business travel, and this has led us to create some great partnerships in the retail sector. Working with these clients has given us great insight into the challenges of the import/export market, the complexities brought by Brexit and the problems created by that little global pandemic that have crept up on us as well.

We have bags of experience!

Whilst some travel can be planned in advance – fashion shows, regular visits to suppliers and manufacturers, training, roadshows and new launches – other travel can be extremely last-minute.

We’re on hand and have bags full of experience, no matter what event you need help booking travel for, our retail sector travel management service will have the solution you require.

SUCCESS STORIES

Matalan

Implementing a One-Stop Shop TMC

Matalan have always had their own internal travel team, but the lack of an effective TMC led to a lack of consistency on what was booked, and where it was booked, while there were also invoicing discrepancies and concern over the lack of a duty of care, so how did we help?…

Our success is customer satisfaction: 

• We provided a fully transparent, one stop shop for all their travel needs, and the results were outstanding.
• Over a 3 month period, Matalan saved over £19,000 on flights
• Our rail program and saving initiatives secured a £10,500 saving in the first 12 months
• We saved a further £5,000 over a 6 month period on hotel spend

“We provided a fully transparent, one-stop shop for all their travel needs, and the results were outstanding.”

SUCCESS STORIES

John Lewis

Increasing online adoption and improving cost savings

John Lewis is a leading retailer in the UK with 48 John Lewis shops, which includes 34 department stores, and a growing online business.

We provided them with face-to-face classroom-style training at their key locations and webinar training for partners who were unable to attend on-site. We believe that this was instrumental to their online adoption success, along with the great functionality of Go2Book.

Our success is customer satisfaction: 

• 85% online adoption within the first week
• 82% up on realised savings delivered as at the end of Q3
• 24% saved through online bookings
• 75,000 bookings we made in a single year

Arcadia

Travel fair

Clarity worked in partnership with Arcadia to design, launch and manage the first ever Arcadia Travel Fair. The event included an exhibition with 17 Preferred Suppliers in attendance, together with a series of seminars and master classes held throughout the day.

The results: 

• Over 500 Arcadia staff attended.
• Full seminar programme throughout the day, with online masterclasses and traveller booking briefings.
• Each supplier had its own tabletop stand and promoted its own products directly to travellers and bookers in attendance.
• The event was a success for both bookers and suppliers. Our feedback survey found that all who attended would be happy to attend in subsequent years.

“We have had fantastic feedback and over 500 staff attended
the fair. It has been described as the best event we have put
on!”
