Evolvi Rail Systems comment on rail pricing formula changes announced in the Comprehensive Spending Review:
“The change in the rail formula will in time lead to potentially significant fare increases for business travellers, particularly for ‘walk-up’ tickets,” says Jon Reeve, Trade Relations Director at Evolvi, the online rail booking and fulfilment company specialising in business travel.
“This will likely prompt more companies to consolidate their rail bookings within a managed travel policy compliant purchasing environment – in this way they will be able to optimise available budgets through advance purchase, expense monitoring and seamless P2P processes. Organisations will certainly need to leverage the technical innovation brought to market by tools like Evolvi to assist their procurement of rail travel in order to mitigate as far as possible the future increases.”
