Our modern look and nimble product updates make us seem like a startup. We're not.
We have been helping business travel booking for over 30 years.
In 1989, co-founders Jeff and Craig met as dorm-mates at the University of Michigan. What started mostly as an attempt to get a free spring break trip became their lifelong passion.

Connecting people to collaborate is what we’re about. We work hard to deliver the best experience to each traveler, teammate, travel manager, and partner, greasing wheels to give people more power to grow further.
We go for great, embracing diversity and out of the box thinking. We don't allow constraints to limit, but fearlessly reinvent new ways to unlock value. We reward ideas from everyone.
Tell It Like It Is. Hear It How It Is. Really. Give honest feedback, recognize that sometimes that might be tough to say and hear. But if we are true, we build trust with customers, partners and each other.
Lines between work and personal are blurring and each inspires the other. We keep the mood light, positive, and creative for customers and ourselves. We keep things real, human and fun.
