Overall Satisfaction with TravelPerk

I work for an international company with multiple global offices, yearly retreats, etc. We use TravelPerk for all travel (flight and hotel) bookings across all departments. This allows employees to browse options, book their trips within a set budget, and then pay using the company card -- no need to expense and get reimbursed.
  • Very clean, attractive interface. TravelPerk is easy to use and looks great.
  • Good customer support. When I've had trouble with bookings, TravelPerk support responds quickly and addresses the issue.
  • You can easily add personal travel information (e.g., frequent flyer numbers) that are automatically applied to your flights, no need to add it manually with each booking.
  • You can't filter search results to only show flights within your set budget, which is incredibly frustrating. Yes you can organize by price, but I prefer to organize by flight time and always have to click past pages and pages of out-of-budget flights.
  • The TravelPerk search results do not make it clear what type of economy seat you're booking. I accidentally booked a flight where I could not bring a free carry-on bag, and this was not clear to me when I selected the flight in TravelPerk.
  • I can't do things like pre-select my seat myself. I don't like that I need to contact TravelPerk and have them make the arrangements for me.
  • Saves the HR and events team time: employees can book their travel by themselves
  • Saves the finance team time: employees book travel using the corporate card, so they don't need to be reimbursed
  • Efficient documentation: it's very easy to see and manage employees' trip info and receipts in one place, which helps with accounting
TravelPerk works fine for what it is: allowing employees to book travel within budget without using their own credit cards. It would probably work very well for smaller to mid-sized companies, but may not be the best solution for very large companies that must organize extensive travel. For occasional and straightforward trips that are unlikely to change, it provides a relatively painless experience.
