Ramp Launches Integrated Travel Booking Product Designed to Help Companies Spend Less

June 6, 2024

Ramp Travel combines Ramp’s policy controls, expense automations, and spend analytics with Priceline’s global inventory and exceptional deals – saving businesses time and money from booking to book-close


  • Leading finance operations platform Ramp introduces new way to book business travel using AI, automation, and integration with Priceline.
  • Travel & entertainment (T&E) spend accounts for 20% of annual purchases made on Ramp, and is poised to grow as demand returns to pre-pandemic levels. 
  • Represents Ramp’s second major category expansion this year, following Procurement for managing software vendors. 
  • Follows Ramp’s $150 million raise in April as company accelerates platform expansion and place in the AI economy. 

Ramp, the finance operations platform designed to save businesses time and money, today announced the launch of Ramp Travel – a solution designed to make booking travel and automating expenses easy, low cost, and intuitive. The news marks Ramp’s entrance into the business travel booking category, and is a significant step in Ramp’s journey to help companies automate non-strategic work and make smarter decisions about every dollar spent. 

Today, over 25,000+ businesses choose Ramp to consolidate spend, control costs, and simplify their financial operations. Already these businesses are allocating more of their budgets towards travel– representing 20% of annual card spend on Ramp, up from ~10% in 2021. This is expected to scale as demand for corporate travel rebounds.

As part of the launch, Ramp is partnering with Priceline Partner Solutions to give Ramp customers streamlined access to Priceline’s global network of airline partners, extensive accommodation inventory, and industry leading rates. The tool is deeply integrated with Ramp’s powerful expense management and workflow automations to eliminate the busywork and hassle typically associated with traveling for work– like expense reports, cumbersome approval processes to book travel, and delayed visibility into how employees are spending on trips as they happen.

Ramp already makes companies’ finances more efficient by streamlining expenses and automating busywork,” says Eric Glyman, CEO, Ramp. “By integrating travel booking, which has traditionally been a pain point for busywork and bloat, organizations have more time and resources to focus on what really matters: their business.” 

A new model for business travel

Ramp Travel departs from conventional corporate travel offerings that profit off of high fees in exchange for guaranteed control over how and where employees spend. These traditional systems force businesses to choose between low prices and low controls – or high prices and better controls, are frustrating and manual to use for employees and accountants alike, and keep companies in the dark about the real-time flow of T&E spend across the business.

Ramp believes companies deserve better, and built Ramp Travel to: 

  • Eliminate the financial compromise between friendly rates and precise controls by pairing Ramp’s customizable policy guardrails with access to exceptional deals on flights and hotels globally- powered by Priceline Partner Solutions. 
  • Simplify how employees book, with an intuitive interface to find in-policy flights and hotels in one place, all without extra booking fees.
  • Automate everything from collecting receipts to coding transactions, so employees on the ground can focus on making the most of their trip and finance teams can focus on their business, not busywork. 
  • Give real-time insights into T&E spend, so companies can prevent non-compliant activity and uncover negative trends as they happen. 
  • Preserve flexibility and choice in how companies book travel, by integrating with external providers like Corporate Traveler, TravelPerk, and more. No matter where businesses book, Ramp AI will effortlessly route expenses to the right trip, show compliance against policies- down to per diems- and streamline accounting.

Ramp is uniquely able to realign incentives in business travel because it’s approaching the space as a software and workflows company designed to help businesses spend less time on manual work and less money across their expenses, rather than a travel solution with specific interests. Instead of inflating rates, adding booking fees, or creating friction with external providers, Ramp is leveraging its technology and expertise to make traveling for work more simple and compliant. 

I’ve used so many systems for travel, and Ramp really knows how to take the best parts of each and make it so seamless and efficient,” says Staci Robinson, AP Manager, Pair Eyewear. “Employees don’t have to navigate to three different places just to book travel, and all their spend when they actually take the trip is all in Ramp, too. From approvals, to coding, to automatically attaching receipts to each trip – it’s brilliant.” 

Through the new relationship with Priceline Partner Solutions, Ramp customers now have access to Priceline’s full breadth of global travel products spanning over 116 countries worldwide.  

Priceline’s extensive inventory and highly competitive rates will help users seamlessly find the right travel offering to suit their needs,” says Matthew Shutt, Vice President and General Manager, Priceline Partner Solutions. “We’re excited to partner with Ramp to help take the friction out of business travel for corporate customers, and improve the experience for both employees and employers.”

Ramp Travel is available now for existing customers to experience a smarter, better way to travel.
