ACTION: Chris books an international flight with an airline that charges for bags and has other fees.

MESSAGE 2: Reinforce company mobile policy related to international fees closer to departure.
RESULT: Chris activates international capabilities on her phone and checks her bags in advance, avoiding additional costs.
All business airlines recently changed their baggage policies and fees. The airline now charges a $100 fee whenever carry-on bags are checked at the gate. Please keep this in mind and be sure to check any necessary luggage before boarding to minimize fees.

RESULT: Bob rebooks at a preferred hotel, saving money and contributing to improvements in his company’s use of preferred properties, which aids future negotiations.

ACTION: Stephanie does not book the lowest available airfare.
IMPACT: Stephanie would pay more for her flight.
MESSAGE: Explain the importance of taking the lowest-cost flight wherever possible and ask Stephanie to reconsider her reservation.
RESULT: Stephanie rebooks to a lower-cost flight. Because pre-ticket data was used to catch her mistake before the flight was ticketed, Stephanie avoids change and/or cancellation fees.
Your recent air reservation detailed below exceeded the lowest available price by more than $150. As a reminder, all travelers are required to purchase the lowest-priced fare. Please make alternate arrangements that comply with our travel policy.
