You can do this directly through your SWABIZ account - no need to even pick up the phone!
Utilizing the SWABIZ Traveler Accounts will auto-populate all of your traveler's information, such as their name, date of birth, RR number, pre-check KTN, etc., all to save you time!
With the SWABIZ Ghost Card feature, your travelers can charge their reservations to your company's credit card without ever revealing your credit card's account or billing information. This saves you and your travelers' time and money on reimbursement and administrative costs!
The SWABIZ free-form Internal Reference Number field allows you to assign a word, number, or alpha-numeric value to each reservation (i.e. Marketing, Sales, Tech, e023500, etc.) This makes it easy to identify, prioritize, and/or lump each group, team or department together when running your travel report.
A SWABIZ account can have as many limited and/or full-access Company Travel Managers as needed. Plus, full-access CTMs can add other CTMs to the account as well.
Your SWABIZ account will remain active for six months after your last reservation transaction (i.e. initial booking, itinerary change, cancellation, etc.) If your account deactivates due to a lack of activity, you can call the SWABIZ Help Desk (1-888-479-2249) to request that it be reactivated. *Note that after an account is reactivated, it will only remain active for one month unless there is a reservation transaction.
