US companies are still investing in business travel – and they’re paying more for it, according to the Q2 Replicon Productivity Index. That data, based on US Bureau of Transportation statistics and information from nearly 10,000 Replicon, shows businesses are spending about $440 per flight, nearly 25 percent more than average domestic airfare of $357. Airfare makes up for nearly half (40 percent) of a company’s overall travel costs.

The Replicon Productivity Index found companies are already spending an average of $323 on hotel fees, accounting for nearly a quarter of their overall travel expenses. Taxi and transportation makes up another 20 percent of travel costs – an expense that will likely increase as gas prices continue to fluctuate.
