Concur TripLink is the first solution of its kind to extend the benefits of a managed travel program to bookings that happen directly with suppliers. This allows businesses to:
- Maximize the use of negotiated corporate discounts
- Gain visibility into spend, no matter where it is booked
- Have a consolidated view of all travel program data
- Ensure end user compliance with company travel policy
- Fulfill duty of care requirements
- Drive greater traveler productivity and satisfaction with TripIt Pro for all travelers
"Travel managers are caught in the proverbial middle seat when it comes to visibility into bookings," said Tim MacDonald, executive vice president of Travel for Concur. "On one hand they are working to increase savings for the company and keep track of employees' location to ensure their safety, while on the other hand, business travelers sometimes need to book outside the program. Concur TripLink solves that specific problem by connecting every part of the travel ecosystem so managers can have more control and visiblity while giving travelers more choices."
Global Concur TripLink partners include AccorHotels, Airbnb, Air Canada, American Airlines, Avis, Booking.com, Captain Train, Enterprise Rent-a-Car, Etihad Airways, Hertz, HRS, HotelTonight, InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), Lufthansa, Marriott International, National Car Rental, Omni Hotels, Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Sixt Rent a Car, United Airlines and WallyPark.
