University-preferred travel agencies Direct Travel and Flight II Travel are now offering discounts on United Airlines flights booked through their agents, as well as through Direct Travel's Concur online booking portal. The discounts range from two to sixteen percent depending on fare class and destination. United tickets purchased through Direct Travel may receive a greater discount due to the company's volume purchase agreement with the airline.
The agencies are also offering name changes on unused United Airlines tickets. Direct Travel and Flite II will track cancelled tickets and, if the original traveler does not expect to fly within a year of cancellation, make a name change to another approved CWRU traveler. This will save thousands of dollars annually lost in unused employee, student, and visitor unused United tickets. Contact Direct Travel or Flite II Travel for more information. Certain restrictions and fees apply.
