Traditional Open Airfare Audit


The Original Airfare Audit introduced in 1978 and still proving lost savings

Since we opened our doors in 1978, Topaz International has performed airfare audits for corporations worldwide. This service offering, the traditional open airfare audit, is how it all got started. This real time evaluation of the performance of your Travel Management Company or self booking tool, begins with complete and open notification to your TMC. Using the triangle approach, this service has three key stakeholders that completely understand the audit process and requirements: The Corporation, The Travel Management Company, and Topaz International. Once all parties have an understanding of the process, we begin the audit, and at this time all parties know when we are auditing,

Why would you require a Topaz airfare audit?

  •  An unbiased, third party review of your agencies or self booking tools performance
  • Monthly performance reports which include: Agencies error percentage, specific errors by PNR, industry benchmarking data
  • How your TMC is adhering and applying your travel policy
  • How effectively your TMC is applying of your negotiated rates
  • Honest, detailed data to share with management and employees to alleviate any questions and concerns about your TMC performance

Why This Audit for my Airfares?

This is the offering when you want complete and open disclosure with your TMC. They are part of the start up process - they understand what we are doing - and most important to the corporation is they know when we are auditing. The potential downfall of this type of airfare audit is that some TMC’s have admitted to adding additional steps to their internal process to increase accuracy performance because additional people and processes are being utilized for each reservation.
