Wow. Why am I not surprised? Our entire system is based on giving corporates carte blanche to do whatever the hell they please.
Anyway, I don't know if that's true I just wouldn't be surprised. Even your run of the mill corporate card might be a snake pit for you. Depending on how they do it, you may be liable for it personally regardless of use, and while it won't reflect positively on your credit as a tradeline I'm sure if it becomes a collection it will reflect negatively. So you could travel with company authorization and pay for it using the card, and if the company fails to reimburse you, you are on the hook.
That's why I didn't want a company card, these guys typically have low to zero in the way of morals and it's all too easy to screw you if you make it onto their next downsizing wave. Fortunately I'm in IT so we are the burger flippers of the professional world and I don't have to travel for work. But it's scary stuff if you really read the terms. I did and I didn't like what I saw so I was glad Amex declined me for the company card and saved me from that.
