Save hard dollars, soft dollars, and opportunity costs to unlock savings you didn’t know existed.
PPM America, Inc.
As much as we'd like to we can't share specifics of any airline, hotel or car rental agreements that AmTrav has -- suppliers don't like that. If you're really curious and want to save time and money with AmTrav, reach out and we'd love to talk!
That said, we assure you that AmTrav has discounted rates with several major U.S. airlines and a number of hotel brands and individual hotels. Moreover AmTrav uses our technology to source rates from different sources like online leisure websites, those hotel rates sometimes come with discounts up to 20% off published rates. We're continually looking for opportunities to save all clients money with rates that make sense for companies and their travelers.
First, client companies don't need to meet any minimum to access AmTrav airline and hotel discounts. When clients spend more, though, Amtrav Relationship Managers are experts at understanding clients' needs and helping them negotiate corporate airline, hotel and car rental agreements.
Airlines: companies can qualify for airline small business plans that earn perks (free premium seats, waived fees, etc.) with as little as $5,000 spend per year. Airlines will negotiate discounts and perks (like giving your executives premium status) with clients who agree to pre-pay airfare starting around $50,000 per year. Larger discounts without pre-funding start around $200,000 to $300,000 in spend on an airline annually.
Hotels: individual properties usually ask for an annual 50 room night commitment to negotiate percentage discounts or flat rates, with additional savings beyond 100 nights. Large hotel brands require a million dollars in spend per year for brand-wide discounts, though some smaller brands and chains within brands require less.
Car rentals: companies will give small discounts (like 3%) without any minimum spend, discounts start increasing after about $5,000 spend.
Note! Coming through and (hopefully) out of the COVID pandemic in 2021, airlines, hotels and car rental companies have relaxed spend and room night requirements.

Bookers are free to shop around their favorite sites, however we believe this isn't a great use of time. AmTrav has guarantees from the biggest airlines that we're getting their lowest fares, we have discounted fares from certain airlines and discounted rates from certain hotels, we have special technology to pull in additional airline and hotel rates, and we have client company's negotiated rates. Rates booked off AmTrav don't have travel policy or unused tickets applied, don't include AmTrav service and their spend and tracking data don't flow into AmTrav systems for administrators. So between the low likelihood of finding lower rates and the inefficiencies of booking away from AmTrav we believe that AmTrav saves you money, time and stress on travel so you have more time and focus on your job.
Sure, here's a running list. Save money with:

Great question, and to be perfectly honest with you we're still working on reporting that both clients and AmTrav experts believe in. We don't like to throw around half-baked, inflated numbers, so we'll share a number when we have one we can stand behind.
