Say goodbye to city tax: How Ayruu simplifies business hotel bookings

Taxe de séjour et voyage d'affaires

For many travellers, a persistent hustle is the payment of city taxes linked to their lodging. Despite appearing as a minor aspect, this requirement can swiftly evolve into a burdensome process, compelling travellers to rely on personal credit cards and manage expense reports to seek reimbursement.

1. The problem with city tax payments

  •  Payment at check-in

Corporate travellers are often required to pay city taxes directly to the hotel at check-in. This means using personal credit cards to cover these fees upfront, which can be inconvenient and financially burdensome.

  • Claiming expense reports

After paying the city tax, travellers must submit detailed expense reports to their companies. This process involves collecting receipts, filling out forms, and ensuring that all necessary documentation is included. It is time-consuming and adds to the administrative workload of travellers and the assistants or office manager in charge of expense report verification.

  • Waiting for reimbursement

Once the expense report is submitted, travelers often face a waiting period before they are reimbursed by their company. This delay can impact personal cash flow, particularly if the reimbursement process is slow or if there are any issues with the submitted expense report.

  • Administrative burden

Both travellers and company finance teams face significant administrative burdens. Travellers must meticulously track their expenses and comply with company policies, while finance teams need to review and process numerous expense reports. This creates additional work and potential for errors.

  • Impact on traveller experience

The hassle of managing city tax payments and the associated administrative tasks can negatively impact the overall travel experience for corporate travellers. It eventually adds stress and distracts them from their primary business objectives.
