You’ve seen the headlines: Hundreds of flights removed from schedules. Thousands of delayed or cancelled planes. Hours-long queues at check-in, security and baggage claim. Even longer customer support hold times. Travel is chaotic.
BCD has expanded a multiyear partnership with FairFly, the market-leading technology and artificial intelligence that powers BCD Air Price Assurance (APA). APA predicts when fare changes will occur and automatically cancels and rebooks tickets at lower rates. With FairFly’s global automated GDS coverage, BCD will be able to offer APA to all BCD customers. The technology helps save time and generates savings up to 4.8% of overall air spend with zero disruption to the traveler.
Are you headed to GBTA Convention 2022 Aug. 14-17, in San Diego? We asked some of our GBTA convention veterans how to make the most of the experience. Their advice: make a plan, step outside your comfort zone, enjoy the festivities (but not too much) and rest.
Trip cancellations and other travel delays sometimes are unavoidable, especially in today’s complex travel environment. So, what can travel arrangers and business travelers do when they find themselves facing stressful disruptions? BCD Travel technology partners Lumo and AirHelp may be able to assist. Lumo helps travelers and arrangers plan ahead and fly smarter by predicting travel delays hours to weeks ahead of a trip. AirHelp works to promote and enforce air passenger rights in cases of flight disruptions.
