Any one know the merchant category for Amex BGT (Global Business Travel)?

Looking to book travel thru my company's travel portal, which is the Amex GBT. Any know what the merchant code is if I book thru them??

 

I plan on using my Citi prestige and wanted to make sure it is classified as travel/airline and not travel agency. Big diference in TYPs acquired Smiley Very Happy

Is it going to make a difference? Meaning, do you have another card in mind that will give you better than 1 TY point if it codes as Agent?

If not, then you may earn the higher rate, but at least get the 1 TY point on the spend, as the worst case, right?

It's the difference between getting 1 TYP per dollar vs. 4 TYPs per dollar (I'm currently under a promotion thru Citi). The standard TYP per dollar spent on travel is 3.
