What if we told you that there’s a one-stop solution that can help you take care of all your business travel, including expense reporting and setting travel policies for your team, and, at the same time, is easy AND affordable to use? Welcome to Bolt Business.

Let’s be fair, work-related travel goes a little bit like this: getting from A to B is a cool walk in the park, but all of the expense reporting makes either you or, if you’re lucky enough, your accountant’s head explode. So we thought, why not simplify the process and allow businesses of all sizes manage and pay for corporate trips via an easy-to-use portal?

Introducing Bolt Business

Bolt Business is a hub-like Bolt platform, allowing you to manage everything related to your company’s business travel. Allow your team to book rides on account, and keep track of the routes and expenses of your company’s business travel, all in one place. It doesn’t matter if you’re a solo player or have a team of 1000+ amazing people, all of the information you need is stored in an easy-to-use web-based platform enabling simple, fast, hassle-free travel and reporting.

With Bolt business, you can spend up to 30% less on business commutes compared to regular taxi rides. And, as a cherry on top, you’re the one who gets to decide how you and/or your team travel. A fancy Mercedes for a stylish business meeting, or a standard Toyota for a quick ride to the office — they’re all lined up and ready to go!

Here’s how it works:

All of your employees can connect their Bolt app accounts to your business account (alongside their own personal account). When they need to take a business ride, they simply switch their payment method to the business account and go.

You can connect your company credit card to the account so, instead of everyone paying as individuals and bringing their business-related cab receipts to you one-by-one later on, your Bolt Business account handles the payments and invoices automatically — allowing your team members (and you) to focus on more important things.
