07 Dec CLS Elves Offer Hotel Savings for Business Travelers
Our CLS elves have been super busy this year saving clients thousands on their lodging costs! The travel management elves in our reservations center work around the clock all year long negotiating rates and finding the perfect hotel or corporate apartment for every business trip. Then they audit the bills to ensure any unauthorized charges are removed before consolidating charges and invoicing clients.
CLS handles all the details to maximize savings on every stay. We track client savings by category and deliver the total cost savings along with the breakdown in our comprehensive quarterly reports. Here’s a look behind the scenes at the ongoing savings available to organizations that partner with CLS.
CLS leverages its buying power and hotel partnerships to negotiate significant rate savings for clients. Following your company’s travel policy guidelines, we do all the research and provide you with only the best hotel options at the best price.
No-Show and Other Hotel Fees Waived
CLS understands that life doesn’t always go according to plan. Travel dates change and business trips sometimes get postponed. That’s why we work with our hotel partners to waive no-show, early departure, and late checkout fees for our clients when their travel plans change unexpectedly.
Did you know that travelers staying long-term in a hotel are considered residents and become exempt from hotel occupancy taxes? The rules vary by state and hotels often need to be notified when it’s time to stop collecting these taxes. If you have multiple travelers working in the same area long-term, this can add up to thousands of dollars over the duration of the project. CLS makes sure all our clients receive the tax savings they’re due and even negotiates refunds on their behalf when necessary.
Unauthorized Charges Removed
We’ve found that over 25% of hotel bills are wrong and include errors from incorrect rates to extra charges. That’s why our billing department audits every folio and makes sure the rates are correct and any unauthorized charges or incidentals are removed before we invoice our clients. These charges often include: banquet or meeting rooms, food and beverage, laundry or dry cleaning, microwave and refrigerator, parking, and pet fees. You’ll never overpay or waste time trying to get charges reversed again. It’s all part of our consolidated invoicing service. Zero unauthorized charges – guaranteed.
We believe your resources are better spent focusing on your business. Leave booking reservations and processing invoices to us and we’ll save your company time and money.
Why wait? Reduce your lodging costs and start saving on your next business trip! If your company spends $250,000 or more annually on hotels and corporate apartments, request a demo to put CLS’ elves to work for you.
