The act of business travel is both rewarding and risky. The rewards for companies range from tangible financial rewards to increased market share or enhanced international business relations. Individuals benefit by added employment responsibility and first hand experience with diverse business cultures. The NBTA estimates that for every $1 expended for business development travel it generates approximately $15 of revenue for the company. However, business travel is not without risk. While many travellers and companies focus exclusively on high profile threats such as terrorism and kidnapping the larger majority of business travellers are exposed to threats on a regular basis the create delay, disruption, illness, decreased productivity and life safety concerns.
