Traveling for business with low credit card limit?

What options does our small UK business have for booking short notice travel when the credit limit on our business cards is fairly low?
I'm an admin assistant at a small start up in the UK and we've reached a stage where some of our staff are having to make increasingly frequent short-notice (i.e. expensive) trips to Europe. In the past we've used one of a few company credit cards to book flights, but as these cards don't have the highest limit it doesn't take much to max a card. We have the cash to pay for these flights, so I'd like to find a way of purchasing them that doesn't involve credit cards. I've found that a number of airlines will accept bank transfers if flights are booked 14 days in advance, but unfortunately we often don't have that much notice. What options does our company have aside from asking the bank to raise the limit on our cards?
