Visa, Orbitz for Business partner to launch business travel and expense solution

The partnership will offer corporate clients a travel and expense solution that makes booking, reconciliation and reporting more efficient.

Dubbed Visa Travel Manager, the solution will provide mid-market companies control of, and visibility into, employee travel spending.

The solution will be available to Visa issuers and their clients from October 2015.

The business travel and expense solution integrates an Orbitz-powered booking and payment portal on the front end with Visa IntelliLink reporting and expense management on the back end.

The integration will provide companies a greater ability to capture total travel spend and have increased visibility across their organization, promote compliance, and provide data intelligence to drive cost savings, the companies said in their press release.

The platform will allow employees to manage and submit their expense report as well as receive access all supplier-published rates as well as discounted Orbitz for Business rates. Employees can book for their travel using Visa’s Orbitz for Business portal and pay with their Visa business travel card.

Visa vice president of global commercial solutions David Henstock said: “With Visa Travel Manager, we’re bringing together two recognized brands to offer a great customer experience, making business travel easier than ever for mid-market companies.”
