Topic:  How Much Does It Cost You To Pay For Business Travel?

How you pay for something can cost you - BIG TIME.  How can you evaluate which decision to make that is beneficial for your organization?  The size of your rebate might also hide costs that you were unaware of.  Simply choosing a payment solution based on the largest rebate might end up costing you more than another option.  That's why we want to further understand the various charges associated with various payment solutions such as:  direct bill, corporate card, cash advance, central bill account, etc. 

Some payment solutions require more back-office work and processes while others make back-office work less necessary.  

AirPlus International and GBTA have conducted research on payment solutions available and some of the aspects of payment you should assess before selecting a payment solution for your business travel program.
