The "Expo-effect" is already present in business travel by air for Milan, where business transfers by this means of transport have grown from 30.7% of the first semester of 2013 to 32.5% during the first semester 2014. This fact emerges from the latest revelation of the Business Travel Survey by Uvet American Express,a company of the Uvet Groups that is specialised in business travel. 

At the same time Milan is confirmed as first Italian destination for high speed train travel, with 30.4% of trips more compared to the 26.5% of Rome. Good news, therefore, since the research shows that after three years of "absolute calm" business transfers in Europe, especially towards German, English and Spanish destinations, have growns by 10% compared to 2013.

"This upswing of business trips in Europe" says Luca Patanè, President of Uvet Group "is accompanied by a reduction of 3% of the average cost of an airplane ticket, from 387 Euros of the first semester of 2013 to 377 Euros on the 30th June of this year. And with respect to the first semester of 2012 the airplane ticket has on average decreased even more: almost by 5%." "The information", adds Pantanè, "emphasises for our Country an increase in the short term use of trains, hotels and car rental services. Thanks to travel management companies that support Italian companies in the management of their trips there has been in these years a constant decrease of the costs sustained for business travel. On average a transfer cost 100 Euros in 2006, now it costs 65 Euros. The compression of average costs in business travel creates an efficiency in the system and allows companies to spend less for business trips with concrete benefits on budget expenditure for trips and particularly missions abroad."

Lastly, a fact referred to business transfers towards intercontinental destinations. According to the results by Uvey American Express, these are on the increase: +3% at 30th June of last year and +11% compared to the first semester 2012.
