Are you looking to make paying day-to-day travel expenses easier for your employees? A.I.D.A. Virtual Payment is an award-winning virtual credit card solution that is simple to use, secure and provides a more convenient method for managing business travel expenses.
A.I.D.A. Virtual Payment is designed to extend the limits of your AirPlus company account to bridge any potential acceptance gaps. As such, your employees will always be able to pay for flights, hotels, train tickets and other travel expenses without ever using their own credit cards. In turn, this reduces admin for your finance department by ensuring the reconciliation process is much more transparent.
The virtual card solution works by creating unique, single-use MasterCard numbers for one-time or a set number of purchases. You are free to set spending parameters, and the generated number becomes obsolete after a set amount of uses. For this reason, it provides the benefit of greater security and convenience than using a traditional credit card.
A.I.D.A. Virtual Payments get charged to the AirPlus Company Account. This means all transaction information is captured on one single invoice, which you can customise to include only the data you need. Consequently, providing you with the visibility to manage your travel policy more efficiently and the insight needed to discover cost-cutting opportunities.
