If you plan on booking your next trip with a corporate travel agent, make sure you are getting a Price to Beat so you can earn rewards! There are two ways to do this:
1. Get a Price to Beat directly in Rocketrip
First, generate a Price to Beat by going to your Employee Dashboard in Rocketrip and clicking the "New Trip" button. You can learn more about getting a Price to Beat by clicking here. Once you've generated your Price to Beat, you can contact your travel agent and let them know those details so they can help you book under that rate!
2. Get a Price to Beat in Concur (with the Rocketrip extension)
Alternatively, if you’re searching for travel in Concur, you can email your search and Price to Beat details directly to your travel agency by clicking the "Share with Agent" button, as shown here:
Clicking this button should auto-fill an email to your travel management company so that you can book with an agent instead of via Concur's website. This email will be pre-populated with itinerary information about your trip so that an agent can help you book travel that meets or comes in under your Price to Beat. Doing this is helpful because it will automatically attach your Rocketrip ID to your trip once travel is booked with an agent, thus cutting down on the time you'll spend looking up this information in your account. Easy as pie!
Once you've booked your trip, you'll see any eligible rewards pending in your account shortly thereafter. If the agent books your trip at a lower cost than the Price to Beat, you'll earn Rocketrip Points once the trip is complete!
Tips and Best Practices
In order to be eligible for rewards when booking with an agent, please remember to generate your Price to Beat and then book with your agent within 24 hours. If you need more than 24 hours to book, go ahead and visit your Employee Dashboard > My Trips and click "Refresh" on the appropriate trip card. That will start the 24-hour period all over for you!
It's important that the times, dates, and locations on your itinerary match those on the Price to Beat! For example, if you generate a Price to Beat for certain time parameters (e.g. 10am-2pm) and then book with an agent outside those time parameters (e.g. a flight that leaves at 3pm), you can go back anytime within 24 hours after booking and refresh your Price to Beat from your Employee Dashboard to reflect the times you actually booked. If you end up booking a flight outside of your initial parameters, your Price to Beat may be updated by our system in order to remain eligible for points.
