Using AmEx for Accommodation in the UK
When it comes to booking accommodation in the UK for workers and contractors in the offshore wind industry, having a reliable payment method is essential. There are many factors that can affect the booking process of your business stay, from strict budgets to last minute cancellations, which is why the finance you use must have the necessary features to accommodate your needs.
Many payment providers have created solutions that are tailored to the specific requirements of businesses, offering finance methods that are flexible and secure, with additional protection, access to cash, international support, management tools and rewards. However, despite all of the benefits, some companies find that when booking contractor digs, their preferred provider simply isn’t accepted by the chosen accommodation.
Booking Accommodation in the UK
We understand just how much time and effort it takes to source the right hotel, B&B or self-catering accommodation for your workers and contractors, particularly when working in the renewables sector. Travelling distance to and from site, WiFi availability for checking shifts and downtime, and flexibility for weather days and unexpected cancellations all need to be taken into consideration (read our guide to booking accommodation for the offshore and renewables industry). After all that searching, you don’t want to get to the payment stage of the process to find that you can’t use your designated method.
Take, for example, American Express. It’s one of the world’s most renowned corporate card providers and their payment methods can be used across the globe, but yet you may find that the cards are not always accepted by the venue itself. Luckily, this is where we come in. Rapid Accommodation is able to accept American Express, whether it is accepted by the accommodation or not. We do this so our clients can book the most suitable place to stay for their hard-working offshore engineers and contractors.
This applies to establishments anywhere in the UK, and we won’t charge any credit card fees either! It’s a key part of our accommodation service, along with having the ability to offer credit accounts to our clients, helping you to boost your cashflow.
So, if you have a place to stay in mind, simply give us a call, tell us where you’d like your workers to stay and we’ll book it for you. To find out more about our accommodation booking services for the offshore and renewables industry, get in touch.
