TripActions Major Product Releases - Q3

In the third quarter of 2022, TripActions launched features to help customers make the most of their in-person experiences. From transparent reporting to expedited reimbursements, TripActions has been laser-focused on making the travel and expense processes easier for both admins and travelers.

Travel Program Management

Decrease carbon emissions with traveler-focused education during the flight shopping process.

Carbon Emissions in Booking Flow

Decrease carbon emissions with traveler-focused education during the flight shopping process. Travelers will be able to see:

  • CO2 per flight surfaced

  • Emissions relative to other flight options

  • Education on carbon emissions

This data will empower travelers to make the optimal booking choice for themselves by also incorporating carbon impact in the decision process. This feature will be live for all travelers in October!

Hotel shopping experience is streamlined on the hotels details page.

New Business Value Rate

TripActions now has access to Expedia Business Rates, which are labeled in search as “Business value rate.” These discounted rates are exclusive rates with business-friendly amenity inclusions, such as Wi-Fi and breakfast with a possibility to earn loyalty points as well in some properties.

Label: Business value rate

Description: Competitive rate that prioritizes business-friendly amenities.

Group Meetings & Events

Enhanced Groups Management Capabilities

What is it?

It’s now possible to book more people with the TripActions Team Travel tool. TripActions Team Travel empowers event managers and team leaders to create and manage events in just a few clicks. The suite of features offers users a seamless self-serve experience and gives companies enhanced visibility over their group travel activity. The latest enhancements to the tool aim to give event organizers additional controls while also increasing the maximum number of participants to 50!

What's new?
  • Improved accuracy: the budget estimate tool has been rebuilt in order to provide a faster, more accurate prediction of total costs when creating an event

  • Increased capacity: event managers and team leaders can now invite up to 50 participants to events created via Team Travel

  • Additional control: organizers can now set up stricter travel windows around an event within which the attendees are allowed to book travel - making sure they always arrive on time while also traveling within a reasonable timeframe to and from the event
