A key requirement for many companies is controlling when and how a means of payment is used for travel services. In addition, as many travel services as possible are to be centrally billed: flights, hotels and rental cars for all employees, and preferably for external service providers, who are traveling on behalf of your company, too. The management and control of all expenses presents a big challenge for many companies.
What’s more, is that a large amount of cash is not a practical solution for those employees who rarely travel for business. Paying for expenses in advance with a private credit card is also inconvenient and costly. But a credit card is often indispensable – particularly in hotels.
AirPlus A.I.D.A. Virtual Payment is the ideal solution in this case: With the virtual credit card, you can quickly create MasterCard® credit card numbers for a specific purpose and use them to pay for travel services worldwide. The virtual credit card from AirPlus is a digital version of a MasterCard® credit card that is created only for the payment of one specific travel service. Each card number can be limited to the specific purpose, and also to a set amount, validity period and currency. That makes AirPlus A.I.D.A. Virtual Payment particularly secure and flexible – especially for employees who do not have corporate credit cards or for service providers who are traveling at your expense. All expenses are invoiced centrally through the AirPlus Company Account and appear on a clear collective invoice/statement. Even the time-intensive allocation of expenses is made easier, thanks to additional information and the clear link between payment and booking.
