Ian Strafford-Taylor, CEO at FairFX, said: “Employee expenses can be a costly business for any size company, but for small and medium sized businesses in particular, it can be an even more hard-hitting impact on your bottom line.

“It’s scary to see just how easily expenses can pile up depending on which destination you’re in, and how wildly they vary from place to place. While you might not have much choice over the destinations where you do business, it’s worth considering your departure airport if you want more control over what’s being spent.

“Paying to access an executive lounge so employees can access a calmer working environment before their flight could be a good investment if it means they can squeeze in some extra work, but some of the premium no-hassle airport parking prices might make travellers think twice about the need for priority or premium services.”
