With so many project codes, destinations, and other variables, you need to be able to quickly access clear and concise reporting. Assigning costing has been made simple with Melon.

Your project costs will be made super visible, so you never have to dig around looking for the info you need! Melon’s robust reporting suite (with nearly 800 different metrics!) allows you to use a handy search function to find the reports you need with ease. Now that’s powerhouse tech!
Plus, Corporate Traveler’s Customer Success Team, is there for you when you have questions along the way. Want to know how things are going? We can schedule frequent reviews of your spend per project, whether that’s monthly, quarterly, or every 6 months. No more blind spots!
Start off on the right foot with pre-project budgeting
Before you even start a project, sit down or have a chat with our team and we’ll get to planning your pre-project budget. While things like flights are variable, hotel costs, transportation, and other ground expenses can help project as much of your travel spend as possible. Need something specific? If we don’t have a contract, we’ll work with suppliers to get what you need.
Added value, every step of the way
We believe that visibility of your travel budget and spending means you can make better decisions along the way. It’s not just about tightening your purse strings, it’s about finding value in every dollar you spend. That’s why we try to cram as much into our service offering than any other TMC out there.
With Corporate Traveler, along with amazing customer service, and knowledgeable travel experts that know your business and your people, you also have full 20/20 visibility of your travel program (including a value-add report!).
In our value-add report we cover:
- Your airline credits – what you have, what you’ve used, what’s left over.
