We can perform this activity at our centralized ticketing desk made to cater to these exact requirements while our clients focus on winning customer loyalty and new business.

One small mistake and a travel agent can lose a profitable transaction. We can monitor the ticket issuance each day to ensure that all the applicable tour code compliances are strictly adhered in order to bring our clients the best advantages of private fare contracts and ensure that they don’t miss a good deal.
Unused Ticket Tracking
This might be the most cumbersome of all tasks in a travel agency, and the one which creates the best value for money. Less than 2% of all airline tickets issued remain unused and this varies from country to country. But 100% of all tickets need to be closely monitored to find this tiny %. Unused ticket tracking is a tedious task which is made complex by multiple booking platforms and different levels of participation by each airline.
We take the pain out of the process by tracking every single ticket day after day till the date of its expiry and generate GDS agnostic customized reports for taking timely decisions.
Nothing impacts a travel agency’s payment collections more than delayed processing of cancellations and delayed customer credits. Our team can facilitate speedy SLA based clearance of refund processing requests to ensure that credits are received from the airlines on an immediate basis. This ensures speedy recovery, more effective credit control, and better cash flows for all stakeholders.
Agency Memo Management
Agency Memos are adjustments made by airlines and posted for settlement with travel agency accounts. Most Airlines outsource this activity to third parties, which makes them prone to errors of judgement. Often, an authorized refund application or a credit memo raised by an airline can be authorized with an incorrect amount due to misinterpretation of fare rules or human errors. Debits raised by an airline need to be analysed and often disputed well in time for good redressal. We are well versed with the nuances of agency memo management and identify all the potential errors to reclaim the correct amount for our clients.
We can track all billable transactions on the GDS at a sign on level for streamlined BSP reconciliation, to ensure the transactions are properly captured in the BSP statements and correctly billed to customers through client’s back office accounting systems.

Unused Ticket Refunds
We offer a dedicated 24/7 support and service facility to reclaim unused fare and unused taxes from air tickets of both full service and low-cost carriers.

VAT Refund claims

We can facilitate this process for a competitive fee.
Many countries, including India, have mandated that airlines pay passenger compensation in the event of flight delays, flight cancellations, and denied boarding under specific guidelines. We simplify the process by using our deep domain expertise in airline fares and passenger rights to facilitate such claims for compensation made by inconvenienced airline passengers.
Sign on Audit
Most travel agents use multiple GDS and the level of access given to perform high cash value transactions can be a cause of worry. Fraudulent activity and revenue leakages are a real possibility if there is no control on access creation and monitoring of sign on activity. We can facilitate a sign on audit to assure that signons are assigned on need basis and closely monitored with regular silent audits.
With the advent of multiple booking channels and self-booking tools, there is high risk that emulation rights to core booking systems may be carelessly distributed. Therefore, it is imperative that you understand your business requirements and open access to multiple sources selectively. Additionally, you must align system access with your business objectives and audit requirements. We can assist you in ensuring that your activities on ground and policy compliance are in complete sync.
