How does the Business Travel Account work?


Book travel

When your employees request flights, hotels, or car rentals through your Travel Management Company (TMC), the TMC will book it using your Business Travel Account. The TMC 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, 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 days1.
