CIBT, the global leader for travel visas, immigration services, and legal document solutions, has partnered with business travel technology company Tripkicks. The result places vital travel visa information at the beginning of the booking journey where it belongs. An add-on to business travel programs, Tripkicks influences behavior and empowers travelers with the knowledge they need for a successful trip: knowledge that now includes CIBT visa intelligence.
The integration alerts travelers to visa requirements from CIBT before they book. Now travelers know their travel document requirements in advance of booking so they plan correctly. Customers of the CIBT and Tripkicks partnership automatically link business travelers to a dedicated CIBT portal for in-depth visa and travel information. This functionality is now available within Tripkicks for companies using SAP Concur for their online booking tool.
Eric Scheinerman, CIBT CEO, said, “Business travel compliance has never been more complex. Visa requirements have shifted upstream in the travel booking process and are now at the forefront when considering business travel. We are thrilled to partner with Tripkicks enabling companies to maintain travel management compliance and enhance the employee travel experience.”
Jeff Berk, Tripkicks CEO, said, “As organizations increase international travel, it is important to empower travelers with all the necessary information. We’re excited to partner with CIBT to connect their expertise to business travelers during the booking process so that travelers know exactly what to expect.”
