Knowing ahead of time is always the best case scenario. Hope for the best, plan for the worst.

With the Locomote Corporate Travel Platform, you can configure the Travel Requirements module to known travel expenses, preparing for the costs of known travel-related items like transfer vouchers, conference passes/tickets, meals etc.

By preemptively prompting the Traveller or Travel Arranger to enter the options prior, you can ensure the smallest but sometimes the most important detail, is taken care of.

As the Company Administrator you have the ability to set and customise these workflows and specific travel requirements for every traveller as needed.
