The definition of post-trip approval [in under 100 words] - Click Travel

Post-trip approval is a mechanism by which approval is gained for business travel after the trip has taken place. Typically this manifests itself in the form of an expense claim process, whereby a traveller books and pays for a trip for which they subsequently gain approval for by claiming the cost back from their organisation.


Post-trip approval has a significant disadvantage vs. pre-trip approval in that it takes place after the horse has bolted, hence if approval is not granted then the claimant is left out of pocket. It also doesn’t result in best value in overall travel procurement.
