[DEFINITION] OBT in under 100 words - Click Travel

OBT is an acronym for Online Booking Tool, referring to the system used by a business traveller to book their travel online. In the corporate travel arena, OBTs tend to have the additional functionality of reporting and travel data provision, policy compliance features and traveller tracking.

OBTs are provided by TMCs alongside their service offering to streamline travel management for their customers. Many TMCs utilise 3rd party software as an OBT, while a small number develop their own, with a view to delivering improved user experience.
