Concur adds to open booking option

Concur has added a number of new hotel and car rental participants to its Open Booking option. Specializing in integrated travel and expense management services, Concur has added Avis Car Rental, Best Western International, Choice Hotels International, Inc., Hertz, InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), La Quinta Inns & Suites, Marriott International and Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc to its Open Booking option, which allows business travellers to book hotels and rental cars outside Concur Travel while capturing and providing all travel transaction data to Concur Travel & Expense for a complete itinerary. Through Concur’s T&E Cloud, hotels and car companies participating in Concur Open Booking will be able to link a traveller’s Concur Travel profile with the respective loyalty accounts, enabling the supplier to automatically confirm and grant access to a corporate discount — even when the booking occurs on the hotel or car rental web site. With two-way itinerary exchange between the supplier and Concur’s travel and expense management service, the traveller can complete itineraries with bookings directly on the supplier’s web site and trigger the automatic return of those completed reservations and available e-receipts to Concur to provide complete visibility, facilitate expense reporting, enhance travel manager duty of care and support policy compliance.
