Travel management for finance companies Power your business with a high-performance travel program

Building connections through travel is the key to cultivating new business in a competitive industry like finance.
We’re here to get you started.

Get a step-by-step system for well-managed travel

With cost-saving tools for managers and reliable support for your travelers, your teams will be better equipped to use travel as an investment in business growth. And since cleaner travel is the key to sustain that growth, you’ll have key insights on carbon emissions to help you make greener choices. Here’s an overview of what it’s like to have business travel managed through us.



The trip connects seamlessly for travelers

You scheduled several meetings in Phoenix next month. Now you need to book the trip.

Check Travel Vitals® for updated destination information. Log on to your online booking and expense tool to book the most carbon-efficient trip with discounts on a flight, hotel, and car. A pre-trip estimate helps you stay on-budget and a pre-trip approval system creates a simple workflow to make sure bookings are in policy. After your booking, rate-search technology shops for lower rates on your flight and hotel and finds a similar, cheaper room, saving you $80 on a 2-night stay.1

Day of departure, you arrive at airport early, have a seat and get organized.

Open your Amex GBT Mobile app to see the latest updates to your itinerary and check in to your flight. An expandable map provides a close up view of your hotel’s surrounding location and the app’s know-before-you-go card briefs you on health and safety information at each of your destinations.

Your message system alerts you that your flight cancelled and makes rebooking a cinch.

See three alternative flight options in a text message. Tap one option and get connected to a travel counselor who books the flight. Then send the link with your new flight details to your family and colleagues.

1 Savings is for example purposes only. Actual savings may be higher or lower depending on availability. Like-for-like matching is configured based on similar room type, bed type, breakfast, cancellation policy, concierge, and accessibility.

Your company has sustainability targets. Can you meet them?

Learn how to source and plan for sustainable meetings. Identify greener transport options, report on emissions, and invest in a cleaner future through sustainable aviation fuel.
