Travel Updates - American Express Credit Card Limits (Effective 11/15) & Enterprise Pick up Procedures
A few new Travel Bulletins have been released regarding:
- Enterprise Rental Car Pick up Procedures (TB 13-08 Revised): Travelers will be required to provide their CA Driver’s License when picking up a rental vehicle from Enterprise. For security reasons, renters will now be required to show a second form of identification at the rental counter. Travelers should be prepared to present an employer issued ID badge or business card/travel authorization that identifies them as a state traveler.
- American Express Government Card Monthly Spending Limits (TB 13-10): To continue to ensure the Government Card is used for business purposes only, the Statewide Travel Program is instituting a new monthly maximum retail and spending limit policy. Effective November 15, 2013, the following new limits and restrictions will be placed on all Government Cards:
- Maximum Monthly Retail Limits - $500
- Maximum Monthly Spending Limits - $5,000
The limits will only affect retail charges, such as purchases at department stores, grocery stores and online retail merchants. The limits will not affect charges associated with travel, such as hotels, restaurants, gas stations, baggage fees, etc. If the monthly limits do not meet the business needs of an individual, please contact Accounts Payable (x6426) and we can discuss requesting an increase on a case by case basis.
