American Express expands Corporate Card benefits to improve business travel experience

American Express today launches new benefits for its UK Corporate Gold and Platinum Cardmembers. Intended to help business travellers make the most of their time on the road, these benefits include unlimited access to more than a million Wi-Fi hotspots worldwide via Boingo, a global market leader in Wi-Fi, integration with the itinerary management app TripCase, as well as enhanced airport lounge access.

Cardmembers can now stay connected on the move with complimentary, unlimited access to more than a million Wi-Fi hotspots around the world, including BT Wi-Fi hotspots in the UK, with the Boingo American Express Preferred Plan. Boingo’s network offers hotspots in some of the world’s busiest airports, thousands of hotels, retail and other popular locations. Once enrolled, Cardmembers can have simultaneous Internet access on up to four devices without worrying about data caps or roaming charges.  

American Express has also collaborated with global technology company, Sabre, to integrate with itinerary management app, TripCase. The app links users’ travel reservations into one master itinerary on any iOS- or Android-powered device, or via the web. It also automatically provides travel updates such as delays, cancellations and gate changes. American Express Corporate Cardmembers can now connect their Cards with TripCase in order to receive useful reminders about trip-specific Card benefits. In addition, American Express Global Business Travel customers can benefit from travel bookings being automatically fed from American Express into their TripCase account within minutes of booking a trip online or on the phone.  

Karen Penney, Vice President and General Manager UK at American Express Global Corporate Payments Europe, said: “We recognise that business travellers are increasingly turning to mobile and digital tools to make their travel time more efficient. At the same time, companies value compliance and cost control more than ever. Our new Gold and Platinum Corporate Cardmember benefits have been developed with these factors in mind, to keep business travellers connected and comfortable at every point of their journey.”
