Serko and Acendas Travel ink reseller agreement for travel booking and expense solution Zeno

Serko Limited, a leader in online travel booking and expense management for business, announced the signing of Acendas Travel as a Zeno reseller partner for North America. The agreement brings Zeno’s user-friendly, consumer grade travel booking and expense platform to Acendas customers and continues to expand Serko’s presence in North America.“Zeno is a ground-breaking product that finally gives all parties what they need, whether that’s ease of use for the traveler, control and visibility for the travel manager or rich merchandising for the supplier,” said Acendas SVP, Corporate Travel Joe Curtis. “Particularly with the Zeno expense offering, we foresee this agreement as a way for us to better compete – both in customer retention and acquisition – in competitive bid situations. To top it all off, working with the Serko team has been an incredibly positive experience.”In addition to the positive user experience offered by Zeno, Acendas customers who choose to use the booking and expense tool will have access to the Zeno marketplace under the agreement, which allows travel program managers the ability to customize the preferred vendors in each travel category, making life on the road easier for travelers and maximizing corporate negotiated rate value.“Acendas is definitely an agency that is challenging the status quo,” said Serko SVP of North America Tony D’Astolfo. “When we began initial discussions with their team, we knew Zeno would be a good fit. We developed Zeno to give the market a much-needed alternative and better way of doing things, but to take full advantage of our platform you must be willing to embrace change. The team at Acendas has willingly done so. We look forward to supporting them in achieving the lofty goals they have set for their company going forward.”The reseller agreement is part of Serko’s TMC Community Program, which provides unique benefits to agencies that sign partnership agreements for Zeno, Serko’s next-generation travel booking and expense management tool, in 2020. The Community Program is designed to provide TMCs a competitive advantage through accelerated onboarding, deferred implementation fees and zero minimums until 2021, as well as significant referral commissions for Zeno Expense.

77% of UK residents said they’re willing to consider the environment in their future holiday plans

Nearly half (49%) of UK residents said that the impact of COVID-19 has raised awareness about the impact holidays and travel have on the environment, recent research by iCarhireinsurance.com has revealed.  With dolphins returning to waterways of Venice and cities seeing pollution-free skies, 77% of Brits look to consider the environment in their future holiday plans.The survey questioned 2,000 UK residents on their holiday habits and opinions about conscientious travel. It revealed that COVID and the impact of nationwide lockdowns has had a big influence on people’s attitudes towards the environment, and the effect the tourism industry has on it.  When questioned what has inspired them to consider the environment more when travelling for a holiday, the most common responses were COVID-related. 18% said they plan to be more eco-friendly after seeing wildlife recover in popular tourist destinations during lockdown, and 15% say the reduction in travel pollution during COVID has inspired them to be more environmentally friendly. A further 14% said that COVID has made them more appreciative of the environment.  Other influences, such as influential figures (9%), the media (8%), charities (7%), environmental protests (7%), social media (4%) and politicians (2%), were much less common. This new outlook brought about by COVID has led to many people in the UK saying they will be more eco-friendly when travelling in the future. One-quarter (25%) said they’re willing to holiday domestically, and a further 25% say they’ll even go on holiday less to reduce their environmental impact. A full breakdown is included below: (% who said they would be willing to do the following to lessen the environmental impact of their holiday) Be mindful of their energy use – 26% Holiday domestically – 25% Holiday less frequently – 25% Travel by public transport – 21% Use alternative transport to flying – 21% Not travel to destinations as far – 20% Pack lighter to reduce fuel usage – 19% Book eco-friendly accommodation – 17% Based on the responses, the UK as a collective would be willing to pay £3.36 billion to offset the carbon emissions of their holidays.While raising awareness of environmental issues is a positive to be taken from the pandemic, it’s also brought a number of challenges with it. 36% said COVID has made being environmentally friendly less of a priority to them and 15% said limited destinations have made it more difficult to be environmentally conscious when booking a holiday. With travel restrictions in place since March, 17% said their need for a holiday is simply more important to them than being environmentally friendly.  Ben Lynam, Head of Communications at theTravelFoundation commented on the research: “We are seeing a significant shift towards environmental consciousness as the pandemic accelerates a trend that was already gathering pace. Concern about the future, a slowing of pace and the need to find less crowded places have translated into demand for outdoor experiences and trips that have low impact, or ideally a positive impact on the environment. Smart businesses and destinations that intentionally respond to this shift will recover quicker and stronger.”
