There’s no doubt about it: global business travel presents some unique challenges for expense reporting. In one trip, a road warrior can visit a few different countries—each with their own currency.

It pays to keep your team happy, minimizing the stress that comes with each economy class long-haul flight, delay or last minute move.
Every business traveler—and travel manager, for that matter—has their least favorite expense reporting category. For many, it’s mileage. They dread the manual distance tracking and mileage calculations.
