Find it Easy to Enforce Travel Policy

January 28, 2010
Is your company’s travel policy really controlling costs? Or, like most companies, have you found it difficult to enforce?

At Creative Lodging Solutions, we specialize in corporate lodging for long-term stays and assist our clients in enforcing their individual travel policies. The specifications of the policies are loaded into the company profiles so each stay we book fits within those parameters.

One of our clients reduced their total lodging costs roughly 35% after partnering with Creative Lodging Solutions because we assisted in enforcing their double up policy. We manage the reservations to ensure those who were supposed to double did and any necessary exceptions are reported back to the company. Our proprietary software, Genesis, allows our clients complete control over who may request hotel reservations which prevents fraudulent or unauthorized stays, further reducing unnecessary expense.

If your company has long-term or project based lodging needs, Creative Lodging Solutions can help you enforce your travel policy, manage your costs, and reduce your expense.

Simplicity

January 15, 2010

Tired of having to sort through all those extra charges on your business trip hotel bills?  Do you think your company may have paid for unauthorized hotel charges last year that accidentally slipped through?

At Creative Lodging Solutions, we guarantee our clients that no unauthorized charges will ever appear on their bills.  Our clients select in advance what charges are authorized, such as room, tax, fax, etc., and that’s all they’re billed for.  If a hotel does try to bill an unauthorized charge, we take up the fight on our client’s behalf and relieve them of any responsibility for the charge.

Creative Lodging Solutions audits every hotel invoice for our clients and we’ve found that hotels make mistakes or place additional charges on hotel folios an average of 26% of the time.  We’ve found everything from extra nightly surcharges to unauthorized incidental charges and sometimes even the wrong rates.   We then get the charges adjusted before our clients ever see the bill.

Creative Lodging Solutions guarantees that no unauthorized charges will show up on our client’s hotel bills and completely eliminates that possibility.  It’s that simple.
