The AirPlus Company Account is a centrally billed account which your company can use to centrally pay for airline tickets, rail, car rental agencies, hotels and all travel agency services. Also known as a UATP card, lodge card or ghost card.
A centralised payment and billing system is the way to achieve easier administration and greater cost control. It provides hassle free payment for all your business travel needs, through a bespoke centralised system with automated reconciliation that allows you to evaluate, control and optimise your travel budget.
A company needs to be spending approximately £30,000 annually to make it worthwhile signing up to have a Company Account.
The AirPlus Company Account is primarily used when lodged with your existing travel agency, corporate travel department and online reservation system or service provider. You can then use it for paying all your businesses expenses such as flights, rail, car rental and other travel agency services including hotels.
All pre-booked business expenses such as flights, rail, car rental and other travel agency services including hotels can be invoiced via the AirPlus Company Account.
If a company has several subsidiaries, each subsidiary can either have its own AirPlus Company Account or use just one account and use descriptive billing fields such as a cost centre to allocate the spend accordingly.
