Online Booking 4-1-1
Both of the online booking tools that are offered by Van Zile Travel are specifically programmed to reflect the policy of the companies you work for.  In some cases specific airfares are restricted or hidden, car types or hotels or specific hotel rates may not be shown in the availability.  This is related to the company policy.  For example, you may see a Basic Economy fare marked as "Restricted" or "Not Allowed".  In this case the company has opted to allow you to see those fares in case you are also searching other sources so you know you are booking the lowest allowable airfare.  Other companies prefer to have those fares hidden completely.
