Our compliance service now supports pre trip travel approval, ensuring that travellers get approval before
booking trips. This can reduce unnecessary costs associated with having to cancel trips due to travellers
being denied travel, after they have booked their trips. Travel approval complements the other compliance
features that include, monitoring the number of travellers travelling together, travel on restricted
airlines and travel to restricted countries.
The travel approval process consists of a simple wizard that leads the traveller through a number of
section. The sections include:
Once the traveller has filled in and submitted the travel plan, Voyage Manager processes the plan according
to the client's operating procedure. For example if the trip is to a low risk country the traveller may get
immediate approval. For high risk countries the traveller may require approval. If approval is required Voyage
Manager notifies approvers of the pending trip plan. Approvers can then approve, decline the plan, or request
that the traveller provide additional information. In any case the traveller is notified of the decision and
can take the appropriate action.
