Frequently asked questions

How does Direct Bill work?

When you sign up for Direct Bill, Hotel Engine will front the cost of your bookings and bill you regularly with one organized, searchable statement. No need to dig through individual credit card statements or random receipts to reconcile your travel budget via PDF or CSV.

How long does it take to be approved for Direct Bill?

Two business days or less. Our Accounting team looks at each application individually and will follow up via email with the next steps.

How does Direct Bill benefit my company's cash flow?

Direct Bill enhances your company’s cash flow by allowing you to book now and pay later with consolidated billing, freeing up immediate cash and reducing upfront travel expenses.

Can I request a specific credit limit or request a new credit limit?

Yes! However, our Accounting team will still need to perform a credit check before determining the finalized credit limit. You can apply for more credit on the Billing tab.

What happens if a trip spans two different statement periods?

We will bill you for the nights consumed within the statement period, even if the trip hasn’t been completed. The remainder of the to-be-consumed nights on a reservation will appear in subsequent statement(s).
