American Express Global Business Travel (GBT) has expanded its online accommodation program to provide companies and business travelers access to over 2 million properties worldwide with additional inventory from the company's existing partnership with Booking.com.

GBT clients and travelers can select from a slate of overnight stay options using their online booking tool (OBT), including major chain hotels, independent hotels, non-traditional lodging and extended stay options, alongside transportation. 

GBT’s relationships with major hotel chains and third-party travel partners provide clients access to loyalty member rates and additional rate discounts across inventory sources. Through the expansion of the accommodation program, they can now also utilize special Booking.com discounts at thousands of properties around the world. Booking.com Genius rates, available globally, offer savings of at least 10 percent on every booking. They appear in OBTs as “Genius Business.”
