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.
For staff who only seldom go on business trips, it makes no sense to provide them with large sums in cash. Settling expenses with one’s personal credit card is also awkward and time-consuming. Most of the time a credit card is a necessity for hotel bookings.
AirPlus A.I.D.A. Virtual Cards are the ideal solution here: With a virtual credit card you can quickly generate a Mastercard® credit card number for each transaction and so pay for travel services worldwide. The AirPlus virtual credit card is a digital version of a Mastercard® credit card that can be used each time for previously determined travel services. Each card number is restricted to the set purpose and comes with a limit, validity period and specific currency. This is done with AirPlus A.I.D.A. Virtual Cards is safe and flexible - even for staff members without credit cards or service providers who are travelling at your expense. All expenses are accounted for centrally through an AirPlus Company Account and appear in a clearly set out, grouped invoice. In addition, the time-consuming reconciliation of expenses is made easier thanks to additional information and the clear link between payments and bookings.
With our smartphone mobile payment app, authorized staff can create virtual credit cards if required when traveling and use these to pay flexibly on location.
Mobile A.I.D.A. can thus be of particular help in an emergency situation: If cash and credit cards are stolen while traveling on business, the trip can be continued, thanks to the rapid response through the Mobile A.I.D.A. app. A virtual credit card can be generated at any time which the traveler can use to pay the bills. Mobile A.I.D.A. provides security in the case of unforeseeable expenditure. And that around the clock, almost anywhere in the world.
