Centralised reconciliation for your business travel costs

travel policy compliance.

Save Time

Streamline the reconciliation process so companies reduce the amount of time spent on
administrative tasks and manual processes.

How does American Express® Business Travel Account work?

Book Travel

When your employees request flights, hotels, or ground transportation through your Travel Booking Provider, the bookings will be made using your Business Travel Account. The Travel Booking Provider sends electronic information to American Express, who passes it along to you in a daily report of all booked travel expenses.

Receive Statement

Receive statements daily, weekly, bi-weekly or monthly via BTAConnect. You’ll see all your business travel expenses in one simple PDF or Excel document that's easy to filter and sort, so you can gain accuracy in reporting and discover opportunities to save.

Reconcile Account

Send a single monthly payment to American Express, which can reduce admin time spent reconciling individual payments and processing reimbursements, whilst expanding your cash flow up to 55 days.

Earn Rewards

On Business, a complimentary loyalty programme brought to you by British Airways, is designed to give your company travel services and flexibility when you need it the most. Your company will enjoy an accelerated earn rate of 2 On Business Points for every eligible £1 spent with British Airways.
