Meet Sam :]
Hi, I'm Sam, your pocket travel assistant.

Question 1

There’s another business trip coming up. Your response….

Not London again!
I’m going to miss my cat
Yay! A few days out of the office
Fab! Another destination to tick off the list
I’ll grab my ‘go bag’

Question 2

Do you pack…

As little as possible. You’ll get your suit and clothes laundered on company expenses
Rooibos Tea, Biltong, favourite pillow
Party outfits and spare bags for shopping
Selfie stick, other gadgets
Carry-on luggage only. You want to get off and go

Question 3

Your flight out of Joburg is delayed. Do you…

Ring the office. They can’t do anything about it, but you need to vent your frustration on someone
Facetime your gran
Head to the bar
Use it as an opportunity for some retail therapy
Just relax, these things happen

Question 4

How do you feel about your company’s travel policy?

More red tape!
It keeps me within the rules, so I know where I am
What is a travel policy?
It’s part of travelling on business
Necessary, although I know how to bend the rules a little

Question 5

On the flight do you…

Glare at all your fellow passengers and wonder how they got into business class
Stare forlornly at the plane tracker, getting sadder the further it moves from South Africa
Sip champagne
Read up on the destination
Have a nap, watch a movie, and do a little work preparation

Question 6

How soon do you file your expenses?

My assistant does them
As soon as I get back to the office
Still on my to-do list
After I’ve shown everyone all my photos and souvenirs from the trip
I keep a track as I go along

The weary business traveller
The novelty of corporate travel wore off a long time ago and now everything is a hassle. But it beats staying in the office with colleagues. You hanker for the good old days, when travelling on business was much more glamorous. Now they let anyone in business class!

The reluctant business traveller
You enjoy your trips to a certain extent, but you get anxious and worried. Time drags when you're away. You miss your family and friends - and yearn for your own bed.

The novice business traveller
You live life to the fullest and want to maximise every moment in another destination. But be careful, as you’re in danger of getting a reputation for not taking it seriously enough and not following company policy.

The Passionate business traveller
You really appreciate the fact you're able to travel. Given half a chance, you'll tag on a few days holiday at the end. You don't mind what hotel you stay in - it's all part of the fun. Generally, your travel manager likes dealing with you, although your frequent requests to change your return flight can be a bit annoying!

How can Sam help you?

The more you use your personal assistant Sam, the more the app will be tuned in to your preferences. For instance, Sam will know that you enjoy luxury and exclusive experiences and will recommend upmarket venues, spa treatments or restaurants. This will give you the opportunity to shine and wow your colleagues and clients with your in-depth knowledge about your destination.

Sam can help steady your nerves by giving you all the information you need to make your trip a success. The night before your flight to Paris, Sam sends the weather forecast for the destination, so you know what to pack. On the day of your travel, a few hours before the flight, Sam asks if you need transport to the airport. As soon as you land in Paris, Sam automatically says: “If you have baggage to collect, it will be on carousel number 3”.

The more you interact with Sam, the more the app learns, adapts and improves its recommendations. For instance, Sam will know that you love sushi and fusion food. When you arrive at your destination, Sam will send a message enquiring if you want to make a reservation at the hippest sushi restaurant in town. Better still: Sam is aware of your travel policy and won’t make recommendations that will tempt you to ignore the company policy.

Wherever you are travelling, Sam will provide you with a useful city guide with information on tourist attractions and hints on typical prices at your location, tipping customs and etiquette. And if you want to change that return flight one more time, Sam will give you all the options you need in an instant.

You know the ins and outs of business travel and already have a good understanding of how you can make your trip as seamless as possible. Sam can help you be even more efficient.

Sam knows your home and work locations. It will calculate the estimated time to the airport, and cost of travel options. If you decide a taxi is the best option, Sam connects you with a company that serves the area – one already approved by your company.
