As the platform continues to disrupt the business travel industry, it's ease of use and dedication to do right by the business traveler can be seen through the following new services:

  • Book on Behalf - "Book on Behalf" is a fast, easy and efficient way for executive assistants (EAs) and managers to coordinate business travel for colleagues. With this feature, EAs and managers can book flights and hotels for employees while also giving them complete visibility into the travel plans being made. In addition, EAs and managers can view all receipts, share itineraries, and make updates to the employee's schedule as needed, all of which automatically appear in the traveler's app.
