Travel Vitals, the new offering from American Express Global Business Travel

TD Editor

American Express Global Business Travel (GBT) has launched Travel Vitals, a travel briefing platform that gives travel managers a single source for all the information they need before, during and after a business trip. Data is aggregated from hundreds of sources, allowing users to search travel guidelines by destination, airline, airport, hotel chain, train operator and ground transportation provider.

The know-before-you-go tool shows travel restrictions for specific locations, while also identifying Covid-19 infection rate spikes and hot spots. The journey assistant is free and available to all travel managers, travel management companies and travellers.

For GBT clients and travellers, Travel Vitals powers itinerary-specific information in digital channels, including the Amex GBT mobile app, chat and online booking tools. Travel counsellors answering calls and messages around the world have full access and are contributing in real time to the refinement of local information.

Mark McSpadden, GBT vice president of product strategy and experience, said: “Trip information is going to be central to building trust and confidence. We have to quickly aggregate relevant data in a world in which guidance changes daily. It’s dynamic, and we’re updating it daily.”

For travel managers, the new offering is integrated into the trip audit process and can trigger alerts when journeys are booked to high-risk destinations.
