Make Your Life Easier and Use Mobile Receipt When Traveling

We all might have different means of transportation, but we all manage to get where we want to go… at least most of the time. Some people travel by boat, some by plane, and others by automobile. There are a lot of options when it comes to traveling, but when it comes to organizing all your expenses/receipts from your business trip, there is only one application that delivers outstanding results. The application that I am speaking of is called Mobile Receipt. The application is simple and easy to use, it organizes your receipts as well as develops a professional looking expense report that you can email to one or many different people. It saves you loads of time, which is always appreciated after a long exhausting trip.

According to the US Travel Association (www.ustravel.org) Gen Y makes up 12% of all U.S. leisure travelers and those traveling in this group take an average of 3.9 leisure trips per year. Gen Yers also represent 13% of all business travelers and take an average of 4.2 business trips per year. That’s doesn’t seem like that much for Gen Y – only 12%! Gen X makes up 31% of all leisure travelers.

How much does traveling account for business travel? In the US alone, it is responsible for $246 billion in spending and 2.3 million American jobs; $100 billion of this spending and 1 million American jobs are linked directly to meetings and events. Furthermore, a 10% increase in business travel spending would increase multi-factor productivity, leading to a US GDP increase between 1.5% and 2.8%.

How do we plan our trips then? The Internet, of course. Approximately 90 million American adults used the Internet to plan travel during the past year with 76% of online travelers planning leisure trips online. (Source: Travelers’ Use of the Internet, 2009)

What modes of transportation do we take? Interestingly enough, automobiles are the primary means of transportation by leisure visitors (76%). This means, a lot of the travel is domestic and closer in scope to our home (versus International or across the country).
