Why flight price re-shopping could be a gamechanger for you

Flight price re-shop

Ever been in a situation where you’ve booked a flight and after a week due to some reason (no way airlines are telling us), the price for the same flight has dropped. All that effort to book early or pushing employees to book on time to get cheaper flights goes down the drain. 

Flight prices dropping post booking is a fairly common phenomenon that many of us experience. In fact, a little birdie told us that around 18% of all US flights experience a price drop. But how does that help you? What if we told you that you could benefit from those price drops? 

Flight price re-shop is an awesome capability at ITILITE that automatically re-books the same flight at a cheaper price when flight prices drop. It’s possible to re-shop in roughly 90% of all US flights! Optimizing business travel costs without making the life of employees harder is a dream state for any travel manager. Achieving cost optimization automatically through technology is the icing. 

How does it work?

Once a traveler books their flight, ITILITE’s Price Re-shop gets activated and automatically starts tracking the price of the traveler’s flight for a cheaper price. As soon as there is a drop in the price, the tracker locks that price and re-books the flight with no change in flight number and selected seats. 

Post re-booking, the traveler is simply notified that the flight is re-booked at a better price. Your company gets to keep up to 50% of the amount saved after re-booking. Overall, your company can save up to 3-5% annually. 

Why should you enable it right away?

  • Zero upfront cost  – Enable flight price re-shopping at no additional cost. It gets activated once you start using ITILITE for corporate travel. 
  • Zero effort from your company – You don’t have to lift a finger to start saving through flight price re-shop. Re-shopping happens automatically and savings will get credited to your account automatically
