Whether abroad or here in the UK, when you or your employees travel for business, it’s important to be aware of any potential risks. You should know how to avoid these risks, as well as how to deal with them appropriately, should they occur.

How Amadeus and PayPal are collaborating to support airlines

Article | May 18, 2021

We know from Amadeus’ recent Travel Payments Guide study that increasingly travelers are moving to new, contactless, payment methods.

There’s the do-it-yourself (DIY) approach, beloved by individual travelers and small groups for its budget-friendliness and accommodation of various preferences. There’s also corporate travel management, used by business travelers and companies with no time or patience to plan for frequent work trips. Unlike personal travel, business travel has several limitations: which airlines and hotels a company can book with, where and how bookings can be made, and what expenses are considered valid for reimbursement.
