WICHITA, Kan.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–CLC Lodging, a FLEETCOR company, announced that the company is broadening its services beyond travel management to offer the CLC Trip Card, a new virtual credit card option that allows CLC members to pay for their meals, fuel and other travel and business-related expenses while on the road.
“In a time where workforce travel may feel more challenging than ever, we are thrilled to expand our travel expense control offerings with the CLC Trip Card,” said Ron Rogers, group president of FLEETCOR’s Lodging Division. “Our customers have asked for a simpler way to manage their employees’ per diem expense. This virtual, contactless payment solution allows businesses to minimize reimbursement time and costs, while providing employees with access to funds when they need them on the road.”
How the CLC Trip Card works:
1. Issue virtual cards on the CLC website: Employers can issue individual or multiple virtual CLC Trip Cards for crews at once and activate the cards for specific days or link to existing reservation dates. Employers set the spending limits and assign project codes for expense tracking.
2. Start spending instantly: Travelers immediately receive a notification to access their virtual, contactless CLC Trip Card from any device with the option to add the card to their Mobile Wallet. Employees no longer need to worry about using their personal card for business and travel related expenses.
3. Track expenses and savings: Recapture any unused per diem, control where employees spend their funds, and seamlessly track expenses with assigned project codes.
“Over the past year, we’ve seen companies increasingly prioritize digital, contactless payment solutions as a way to promote hygiene and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Ron Shultz, executive vice president, New Payment Flows, North America at Mastercard. “Our partnership with CLC Lodging and Comdata will bring this solution to countless more employees. Additionally, virtual cards help businesses streamline their expense processes, and provide employees a fast, simple, and secure payment method.”
