  14. 14. Pricing Philosophy… <ul><li>We believe that a pricing plan must deliver a productive and mutually beneficial financial arrangement to our partnership. As your travel management partner, we work aggressively to reduce your total travel costs by: </li></ul><ul><li>Reducing the cost of air, car and hotel expenses. </li></ul><ul><li>Offering vendor negotiation assistance. </li></ul><ul><li>Reducing the costs of processing travel. </li></ul><ul><li>No additional charges for “normal” practices. </li></ul><ul><li>Fee-for-service arrangements foster true agency-client partnerships, eliminating the disincentive to reduce travel costs. Since our compensation comes from client fees rather than vendor payments, this method encourages us to continually strive to lower operating costs, maintaining a win/win relationship. </li></ul>
