TravelPerk Product & Market Update - December 2021

16 Dec 2021 · 3
The last few weeks have seen a lot of change for travel as countries react to Omicron. With that in mind, our product marketing team has put together some tips below to make sure you're up to speed on the latest regulations changes and how to change or cancel a trip.
Last month we also released a bunch of improvements, including more visibility on our carbon offsetting projects & security practices, and a shiny new expenses integration.

Dealing with the latest regulations changes

Travel restrictions changes - 16th December

With the emergence of the new Omicron variant of COVID-19, many countries are changing their travel requirements. Find out how some of our customers' most visited countries are reacting.

Make any of your trips refundable

Flexibility is no longer an option, it's a necessity. By choosing FlexiPerk, you can make any trip refundable: you pay a small fee and can then cancel with a click up to 2h before your trip, and get 80% of the money back.
If you're on our Premium and Pro plans, you can add FlexiPerk to specific trips, for a small fee. For extra peace of mind, consider taking our FlexiPerk company option and put every company trip on a flexible plan.

Need to cancel a trip? Here's how

We've made improvements to the trip cancellation process to make it smoother and faster for you. No matter whether your trip is refundable or not, you can now cancel it in just a few clicks from the Help page, or the Trips page in your account.
