You can depend on Travel Guard, Business Travel Services to find the best airfare prices. We are so confident of our ability to follow through on this guarantee that we make the following promises: When you reserve your flight with Travel Guard, Business Travel Services, we promise that if you find a lower airfare for the same traveler, airline, date and flight, on another website, on the same day as you make your reservation, we will honor that rate and provide you with a $50 coupon per ticket toward your next business purchase through Travel Guard, Business Travel Services. You may only use this coupon for FAU business travel-related transactions. Low Fare Promise
Our Quality Control department continues to monitor the airfare after you purchase an airline ticket through Travel Guard, Business Travel Services. If the airfare amount decreases, we capture the lower airfare, reissue the ticket, and the airline issues a voucher for the difference based on the rules and regulations of each airline. Some airlines charge reissue fees, others do not. When the savings outweigh the airline reissue fees, the traveler will be issued a voucher from the airline for the difference of the two prices. Travel Guard, Business Travel Services will monitor future airfares booked through the airline issuing the voucher and apply it to that next FAU business travel-related transactions based on the rules and regulations of each airline.
