Your Institution Travel Advantages
Booking Flights for Business Travel
When booking your flights, we use a number of advanced systems to ensure that you get the best flights—and the best service—at the lowest fares.
- FareCk™ – Our fare search engine finds the best ticket price available while checking alternative flights, fares, and airlines 24/7. Its flexible system works with institution guidelines and policy.
- WaitListCk™ – In the event that your preferred flight is sold out, WaitListCk™ monitors the wait list and confirms your seat as soon as one becomes available.
- SeatFinderCk™ – Want to avoid the dreaded middle seat? Our clients get aisle and window seats 90 percent of the time, thanks to this sophisticated system. It uses live seat maps to monitor the availability of any possible request: aisle, window, front or back, right or left side, bulkhead, and aisles across. It can coordinate multiple passengers on the same reservation or two travelers on separate reservations.
- ECk™ Tracking Module – Never lose track of refunds, credits, or coupons ever again. ECk™ tracks unused electronic tickets so that any refund, exchange, or credit opportunity is retained and applied.
Car Rental and Transportation Services
You will have access to rental cars and other transportation services anywhere in the world, accommodating the needs of everyone in your party. Our WebCk™ system searches more than 200 websites to find the best rental car prices.
The WorldTravelService® Preferred Hotel Program offers special rates at select hotels throughout the world. Benefits include:
- Deep discounts via preferred corporate rates.
- Discounts of 20 to 65 percent at 47,000 properties worldwide.
- Individualized hotel negotiations to fit company needs.
- Reservations made in real-time links, providing accurate availability.
- Value-added amenities, which may include upgrades, priority check-in, and complimentary use of fitness centers.
- Blocks of reserved rooms: During peak times, hotel reservations can be hard to get, especially in cities like New York, Washington DC, and Chicago. We have room blocks reserved all over the world so that accommodations may be available even when the cities are “sold out.”
