Airocheck audits your travel data for fare mark-ups, possibly the biggest contributor to higher corporate travel costs where they occur. We compare base settlement data-of-truth to bookings data over tens of thousands of bookings. We look for anomalous differences in the fare amounts paid to the airline, and the fare amounts paid by the client. Arbitrary additions to your airfares in the booking process, of up to several hundred dollars or more, are against the understood commitment to lower your travel costs.
Airocheck has built proprietary software that enables the comparative analysis, and is the first such service offered globally. We offer the auditing service to corporate buyers wishing to ensure transparent fare pricing from their TMC. We also offer the service to TMCs who, if they pass the audit, receive the FairFare accreditation stating that they have not been systematically marking up airfares.
Transparent fare pricing provides a fairer playing field for TMCs, it supports airlines’ market pricing, and of course it reduces costs for the travel buyer.
At Corporate Travel Management (CTM), we develop highly customised travel management solutions which make a real difference to businesses in Australia, and across the globe.
