Concur Trip Approval

Travel and entertainment spend is the second largest controllable cost for most companies—so a healthy bottom line depends on business traveler compliance with company policy.

Make compliance simple

A fully customizable solution, Concur Trip Approval simplifies compliance by automatically routing out-of-policy records for approval before the trip is ticketed.


If business travelers don’t know your company’s travel rules and book out of policy, managers need to request new itineraries, or worse, the trip goes as planned and the company must absorb the cost.


After your agent queues the PNR to the distribution system, Concur Trip Approval processes the record and routes it for manager approval if any out-of-policy booking is identified.


As a seamless part of their workflow, your agents enable clients to say goodbye to out-of-policy booking, overspending on airfare and hotels, and business travel to high-risk destinations.
