How do I use a personal credit card to book a trip with Brex?

While your travel budget card is the default option for any trips booked with Brex travel, account admins, card admins, travel admins, and reimbursement-only users can swap this out with a personal credit card. You can let other members of your team use personal credit cards to book trips by reaching out to Brex Support.

Once a team member has this feature enabled, they can manage their personal credit cards by following the steps below.

Note: If your team doesn't have access to Brex travel, an account or card admin can go to Company settings > Plan and billing in the dashboard. From here, you can click on Enable travel, or Schedule a call to learn more.

Add personal credit card

Step 1: In the Brex dashboard, go to Trips > Manage profile.

Step 2: Click Payment. Under Credit Cards, click on the + sign.

Step 3: Enter your cardholder name, card number, expiry date, CVV, and billing information. You can also name the card under Card label and specify whether this card should apply to booking flights, hotels, or car rentals by checking the boxes under Applicable to.

Step 4: Click Save. Your card information will show up under Credit cards. The logos next to your card correspond to the type of bookings that can be made on this card — e.g., if you see an airplane logo, you can use this card to book flights.

In Brex travel, every trip will be associated with a travel budget, which you designate prior to booking. Any personal credit card you add will be tied to the travel budget you select at the time of booking, as will a subsequent personal credit card reimbursement.

This budget will need to cover the entire cost of the trip in order to successfully book it. To request a travel budget or budget increase, read How do I create or request a budget? and How do I request and approve a higher budget limit?.

Delete personal credit card

Step 1: In your Brex dashboard, go to Trips > Manage profile.

Step 2: Click Payment. Under Credit cards, hover over the credit card you wish to edit, and click the trash can logo.

Step 3: Click Delete.

Edit personal credit card

While you cannot make edits to an active personal credit card, you can delete the entry and re-add the card with the updated information.
