Negotiating Corporate Air Travel
At Direct Travel, we buy smarter—which means you save more money. From contract negotiations to proprietary low fare technologies, we maximize each savings opportunity. Here are a few ways that we are able to guarantee you the lowest airfares:
Direct Savings Desk: DSD drives additional savings for international corporate air travel and high cost domestic airline tickets. It also provides consolidator fare options for our clients who want to see these fares integrated into their international faring program.
International Rate Desk: Direct Travel’s International Rate Desk (IRD) faring experts build your complex, multi-segment international corporate air travel itineraries. Our system completes an initial review of each reservation record and automatically routes international itineraries over $750 (or other threshold you may identify) to the IRD for pricing. A recent audit found an average range of savings of 25-40 percent.
GlobalX Fares: Direct Travel was the first U.S. TMC to offer GlobalX In-Country Fare technology—which allows our travel counselors to access a broad database of discounted global in-country airfares, which are guaranteed in local currency—giving you a true edge in the market.
