GBTA Government Relations: The Voice of the Business Travel Industry
About GBTA Government Relations
GBTA advocates across the globe for policies that better the business travel industry. Promoting passenger facilitation, a healthy infrastructure and a tax and fee system that benefits rather than burdens the traveler are key items for travel buyers and the travelers they manage.
Developing and advocating for a changing industry is at the forefront of GBTA’s actions. Items such as the Rules of the Road and passage of infrastructure and passenger facilitation are the reason why GBTA is the voice of the global business travel industry.
GBTA members are an active and crucial part of advocating for the business travel industry. Being a part of this movement through the GBTA Advocacy Action Center allows you to have an active voice on U.S. legislation. From here you will be able to communicate with your elected officials on issues and topics that matter to you.
Government Relations Challenge
GBTA members’ advocacy efforts are key to success in advancing a pro-business travel legislative agenda. The Government Relations Challenge is designed to raise the profile and maximize the grassroots profile of the membership.
Rules of the Road
We mobilized our members to create a declaration of travel reform to guide the industry, business leaders and policy makers in creating a travel ecosystem that fosters growth, jobs, safety and efficiency around the globe. The Rules of the Road consists of eight guiding principles including safety and security, taxes, competition, fee clarity, communication, innovation, traveler experience and quality and connectivity. Together these principles will help to make the global travel systems safer, more secure, more reliable and a better place to conduct and facilitate business.

Both the novice and experienced participant will find this guide to be a valuable resource to support all of their advocacy activities.
