Travel is personal and it's something that people should, with the right technology, be able to book and manage themselves.

Set rules and approval workflow to control spend

Visibility and control are two of the key problems with business travel. Once it's booked it's often too late to change, and one things for certain... business trips change. HelloworldBusiness.travel makes it easy to control who can do what with some very simple rules. After all, no one likes bad surprises - particularly expensive ones.

  • Limit what type of hotels people can book
  • Set a maximum spend threshold on hotels
  • Turn on 'Instant Purchase' rates to access Fly, Drive & Stay rates
  • Use an approval workflow to stop nasty surprises happening

Pay for travel centrally or individually. It's up to you.

The vast majority of travel is purchased using a credit card, and HelloworldBusiness.travel makes it really easy by securely storing your credit cards online and allowing people to use them - without them having the physical card. Ease and control of payment is one of the key ways that HelloworldBusiness.travel helps to streamline the travel management process.

  • Upload up to four cards centrally and specify how they are used (for Air, Hotel, Cars etc)
  • Allow users to store their own cards, or their own company cards against their specific profiles
  • Or, store no cards at all and simply key the card details in at the online checkout
  • Support for all major cards, including UATP
  • Full PCI compliance for secure card storage and peace of mind
