I'm an Administrator: Submit a trip request

You have the power... to Submit a Trip Request. 

As a user in the Locomote Corporate Travel Platform, you have the ability to submit a trip request either for yourself or on behalf of someone (depending on what level of access you have.) 

The trip request or quote will move through an approval process before the booking can be confirmed as complete.
