The Yokoy impact

Frequently asked questions

 
A lodge card is a business card specifically designed for business travel. It can be used for paying for plane and train tickets, as well as for accommodation. The card is lodged with a travel management provider, so all pre-trip expenses are charged to one card number. This helps simplify administration and streamline travel expense payments.

Regular business cards can be used for all types of business expenses, including pre-trip and on-trip expenses. However, a lodge card is intended for pre-trip expenses only, and is typically handled by the finance team, travel manager, HR manager, or office manager, depending on the company size. A lodge card cannot be used for other purposes, as it is generally added directly to a travel management platform, and doesn’t allow other types of payments or other vendor categories.

This publication does not represent an offer. The Yokoy Smart Lodge Card is subject to the terms&conditions of the parties involved in the issuance of the card and is only available in certain jurisdictions, including in the United Kingdom and certain countries of the European Union.
