Feels bad man I’m sorry

Yes you can (actually did this just yesterday). Just make sure you select the Personal option and not US_Employee option when you search for flights/rentals/accommodation. Then when it comes to payment, you pay using your personal card.

Hi, just took a new job with KPMG, and wondering if i should get a personal travel rewards card. Was under the impression that all travel was booked using KPMG corp card. Can you explain?

I know people do it, haven’t heard of any issues. Just make sure you are using your personal credit card. I have checked and I can usually get better deals on my own.

Yes. You can use concur for personal travel. On flights it gets you preferred economy seating for free and Amex travel will help if there are any issues. Sometimes slightly cheaper than published rates. Hotels in major cities you can usually find really good deals on. KPMG preferred rate, etc. Saved a few hundred vs. Marriott’s website on some of the nicer ones near offices.

You can add your personal credit card to co cur and book personal travel. I find the best bargain is the rental cars - they come up 50% discounted so an awesome savings
