How to use Bolt as a business travel app

January 18, 2023


The Bolt app gives you a safe, sustainable, and reliable way to travel in 500+ cities across 45 countries. But if you’re only using Bolt for leisure, you’re not getting the most out of the service — it’s also a powerful business travel app

By setting up a Work Profile — a free feature in the Bolt app — you get all the convenience of Bolt with the addition of pre-filled ride receipts which means no lost receipts, no paperwork, and no more time spent filling out expense reports.

Benefits of using Bolt as a business travel app

Travelling with a Work Profile is the easiest way to travel for work and claim back your expenses.

Every time you travel using your Work Profile, a digital receipt, pre-filled with your company’s details, will go straight to an email of your choice. And by adding a company card, you can charge all work rides to your employer without needing to make an expense claim. 

There’s also no need to download a separate app for managing your travel expenses as you can connect your Work Profile with several leading expense providers:

  • SAP® Concur®;
  • Expensify;
  • Rydoo;
  • Zoho Expense.

And many more are to be added soon.

Once connected, your ride receipts will go straight to the provider, which makes handling expenses much smoother. 

“Signing up for a Work Profile turns Bolt into your very own business travel app. It’s as easy as clicking a button, and we take care of all your payment needs. It doesn’t matter if you’re using a company card or claiming the fare back from your employer — we make it simple for you.”

Neil Cranswick, Work Profile Product Manager, Bolt Business

Creating a Work Profile is as simple as opening up your Bolt app and tapping Expense your rides from the menu on the left-hand side. Then follow the onscreen instructions and add a work payment method, if needed. 

It’s then just a case of switching to your Work Profile before you travel for work.
