HOTEL RATE AUDITS - DON'T LEAVE MONEY ON THE TABLE

Every year, you spend significant time and resources negotiating hotel rates and services for your company.  This effort is only worthwhile when negotiated rates and conditions are available to your travelers.  HRS and GBTA co-sponsored a global study showing that companies around the world often pay more than they should - and they don't even know it.  Hotel rate audits offer a solution - but only when done the right way.  HRS' Eric Hofer will present findings from the global study at our November 15th meeting, sharing local and global insights as well as steps you can take to ensure your travelers are seeing the hotel rates and amenities you negotiated for them. Takeaways you can anticipate:

  • Understand the prevalence of loaded rate errors
  • Learn ways to audit the negotiated rates to minimize errors
  • Discover differences in practices and prevalence in different regions across the globe
