About the course
5-day (40 hours) classroom course
Travellers can demand complexed itineraries with lowest fares, and a travel professional should be able to price and quote journeys with single or multiple pricing units. However, the lowest combination of fares can lead to more penalties for cancellation and date changes. Learn how to quote pricing of complexed itineraries with surface sectors and how to determine different types of combinations: single versus multiple pricing units with possible end-on constructions and side-trips.
