Travel policies *

Travel policies let your companies define travel rules and approval workflows per user groups to ensure that autonomous booking continues to respect corporate travel policies.

“In-Policy” rule supports “Auto-Approval” and “Need Approval” options, which apply when the booking respects the associated travel policy. “Auto-approval” feature means that the booking is ready for ticketing after being made, “Need Approval” makes the booking wait for approval.

“Out-of-Policy” rule supports “Hide”, “Forbidden”, “Need Approval”, “Auto-Approval with warning” and “Auto-Approval” options which apply when the search results or the booking does not comply with the traveler’s travel policy. If a trip is “Out-of-Policy, if “Hide” has been chosen, the search results considered Out-of-Policy will not be shown, when “Forbidden” has been selected, all search results appear but the ones considered Out-of-Policy will not be available for selection, when any of the other options has been selected all search results will be available for selection, and if that’s the case they will be marked as Out-of-Policy, however if an Out-of-Policy price option is booked, “Need Approval” will only allow ticketing after the booking has been approved, “Auto-Approval with warning” and “Auto-Approval” allow ticketing immediately after the booking has been made and if “Auto-Approval with warning” applies it will trigger a notification email to the respective approver(s) letting them know that an Out-of-Policy booking has been made.

Approval workflow supports “Parallel Approval” and “Sequential Approval” which will determine the sequence that the approval email requests follow.

If a traveler is subject to “Parallel Approval”, the application will send the approval email request to all approvers at the same time.

If a traveler is subject to “Sequential Approval”, the approvers defined have an order and the application will only send an email to a subsequent approver after receiving the answer of the previous one and only if necessary according to with what is set in minimum approvals.

Travel policies support several approvers.

Allows travel policy creators to set the minimum number of the approvals to consider a booking authorized. It’s applicable to “Sequential” and “Parallel” workflow approvals and is particularly useful when a traveller just needs to receive a specific number of approvals for the booking to be considered authorized even if he has more approvers than that specific number (e.g. the traveller just needs 2 approvals but he has 5 approvers in his travel policy).

In sequential approval, to minimize the cases where the approval process doesn’t proceed due to lack of response, users are able to define the maximum time the system waits for the response of each approver as well as a default approval behavior (approved/denied) to apply to trips in case the trip approval status is not reached due to lack of responses.

It allows users to specify the bookings that the travelers are authorized to book.

Supports the following flight parameters:

Type of Journey, From Country, From City, To Country, To City, Carrier, Class, Minimum Trip Duration to allow Business and First classes and Maximum Price per passenger.

Maximum price can be set as a fixed amount and/or as a relative (%) tolerance towards the cheapest search result.

Supports the following hotel parameters:

Country, City, Hotel chain, Hotel Stars Ranking and Maximum price per night.

Supports the following rent-a-car parameters:

Pick-up Country, Pick-up City, Supplier, Vehicle Category, Vehicle Class and Maximum Price per day.

Supports user groups’ creation to which travel policies will be associated.

Companies can define reason codes, which users can add when making a booking that doesn’t respect the associated travel policies (Out-of-Policy).

Reason codes are added to the GDS PNR as a remark. And for seamless integration with travel agencies’ systems, travel agencies can customize the reason code remarks’ name and separator. Reason Codes are configured by the company.

Add yours and/or your companies’ Corporate Discount Numbers to include Rent-a-Car Negotiated Rates in your clients’ rent-a-car search results.

Markup Fees *

Markup Fees allow agencies to apply a fee to GDS air trips, without having the fee visible to the customer since when there are markups applied, taxes’ details are not presented, only the total amount. Markup Fees can be defined per company, applicable dates, Type of Flight (Domestic, International, and Intercontinental), City-Pair, Region, Airline and Class. Markup fees can be a fixed amount or percentage based on the fare or on the total price of the trip. The Markup fee applied is described in the PNR through a DI defined by the agency.

Visual Guilt *

With Visual Guilt companies can choose time ranges among 1h, 3h, 6h, 12h and the lowest price available within those time ranges towards the user’s selected flights will be suggested to the user. These price options will be suggested on the current trip page and the user can easily replace his selection by one of the suggested lower ones. The suggested prices are included on the booking page and on the PNR for comparison and reporting purposes.

GDS back-office integration *

Custom remarks are added to the GDS PNR as remarks. Custom remarks are also included in the MIR file.

Offline requests *

Allows companies to ask you for more complex travel journeys or additional services in a way that lets both parties, travel agents and companies, track all the requests made.

Additional users *

By default, each company can have 50 active users for free. If a company needs to have more active users, you can subscribe one or more packs of 50, 250, 500 or 1000 additional users for that specific company. User-packs of different volumes can be combined with one another.

Import Travelers

Quickly create new travelers, update and delete existing ones by importing users from an Excel file. The imported user data can also specify the user group so it can be immediately associated with the applicable travel policy.

Regions

A region can be a set of countries or cities/airports which you can use to ease the setup of Air Private Fares. Regions can be used to easily specify Account Codes journey coverage or to blacklist certain Air Private Fares for specific journey searches. Regions will also be used in the future to allow for more customization for other settings like Fees.
