In the last month, we've launched a number of updates for both businesses and TravelPerk partners, including cheaper card payments for US customers, new expenses app integrations, our GreenPerk API, and improvements to our sandbox for developers. And anyone traveling to the UK will have less paperwork to complete, as UK travel rules ended last Friday.
Updates for businesses
All UK travel rules to ended last Friday
On Friday 18th March, the UK changed its entry requirements. Now passengers who are not fully vaccinated will no longer have to take a Covid test before traveling to the UK. The passenger locator form will no longer be necessary either. Anyone traveling overseas from the UK will still need to be aware of the rules for the countries they visit.
No matter whether you are in the UK or elsewhere, you can use our new online travel requirements tool to find out the regulations for your trip.
See corporate and exclusive rates in flight searches
We've improved the visibility of exclusive and corporate rates when travelers search for flights, to help you make the most of these special discounts.
What to consider when selecting flexible travel options
Flexibility is no longer an option - it’s a necessity. Beyond traditional flexible fares - which normally have a price over 40% higher than standard ones - airlines, hotels, and other providers have started to offer some level of flexibility across different fare types. How do they compare, and how do they differ from solutions like FlexiPerk? Here are the main differences to consider:
Cheaper card payments for US customers
As part of a series of upcoming improvements to our payment services, we've moved all our US customers to our new local card payments provider. This means they will now benefit from cheaper card payments through TravelPerk.
Improved credit notes
We've improved the information on our credit notes to make them easier for you to manage. Now you'll see information about the trip purpose, trip labels, trip dates, cost center, and traveler.
Ramp..up automated travel expenses - with Ramp & TravelPerk
The receipt-matching integration between TravelPerk and Ramp automates your expenses process, freeing you up from time-consuming receipt collection and expense matching across platforms.
By integrating Ramp & TravelPerk you can:
- Automatically forward all your travel expenses to Ramp. These include any fees (like Premium fees), so you won't see any differences between your card transactions and the information in Ramp.
- Easily associate other out-of-pocket expenses using Ramp.
- Get full visibility of your over travel expenses (even before receiving a consolidated invoice).
