Amex GBT Expands Ground Transportation Options with GroundSpan

American Express Global Business Travel (Amex GBT) has expanded its booking options with ground transportation provider, GroundSpan. The new offering is now available in Egencia, providing travelers more choice and flexibility when scheduling ground travel.

Egencia’s customers will have access to GroundSpan’s global ground transportation supplier network, which includes multiple vehicle types such as chauffeured sedans, SUVs and multi-passenger vans. Customers with existing negotiated rates with their suppliers will also be available. In cities across North America, customers will have the ability to book chauffeured transportation and have access to new booking features, regardless of their company size or transaction volume. Smaller companies, which often don’t have their own preferred ground transportation relationships or negotiated rates, can benefit from these expanded booking options.

Egencia has also revamped its ground transportation booking and travel management offering for customers in the U.S. and Canada. The enhanced user experience enables travelers or arrangers to book ground transportation in three steps—search, select and book. New features include pre-populated business reporting data fields and custom frequently used pick-up and drop-off locations to improve the time to book. Flight details are also automatically passed on to the vehicle supplier for active flight monitoring for delays or schedule changes that may impact travelers’ journeys.

The Egencia Analytics Studio enables travel managers to quickly view trends in overall ground transportation spend. They can access the full data set to have a deeper analysis with 50 different data points including active bookings, number of cancelations, distance traveled, location, booking per supplier, and total cost.

Ovation Travel Group, Amex GBT’s high-touch service, is already using GroundSpan for its ground travel bookings. Neo, Amex GBT’s online integrated travel and expense solution, is also expected to expand its ground transportation options with GroundSpan later this year.
