CASE 14 BUSINESSTRAVEL TOOLKIT In 2012, the University of Oxford produced a   practical guide  that gives advice to staff planning a business trip to help them choose the most appropriate travel mode, while also promoting alternative non-travel arrangements for staff wanting to save time and money.

The guide acknowledges that, for many, travel is an invaluable and enjoyable experience. Video conferencing would never, and should not, completely replace air travel. Faceto-face interaction is important from time to time in any ongoing project. For this reason, the guide recommends that   it is important to begin by targeting frequent flyers as the best avenue to reduce air travel  . The travel toolkit also promotes trains whenever possible . There is often a misconception that flying saves time, but once getting to and from the airport, check-in queues, security checks, etc., are taken into consideration, the time difference can be minimal. www.admin.ox.ac.uk/media/global/wwwadminoxacuk/localsites/ estatesdirectorate/documents/travel/business_travel_toolkit_FINAL. pdf
