Published fare savings will appear on each air ticket invoice and an itemized report reflecting the total savings per client, for a specified period. Many Agents using ‘published fare savings’, send a monthly
‘savings’ report with the client’s statement, a very useful marketing tool.
Before turning on this option, it is advisable to notify all QuickTrav users, because once this feature has been activated, another column will appear under ‘air tickets’ in the Invoice Module, and consultants doing auto-invoicing entries, must do an additional entry, in order to produce an invoice.
Please do a safety backup, before turning on this option. If you are uncertain, or require assistance, please contact our HelpDesk before going any further.

To manually invoice an air ticket, proceed in the normal manner, and at the end of the ‘air tickets’
invoice line, you will see a new field has been added, called ‘publish fare’. You must enter the
published fare amount before you can proceed. If the ‘prompt for different reason code’ has been
switched on, there will be an additional field called ‘reason’, and this must also be completed.
To automatically invoice an air ticket, the consultant must now add the entry ‘F*Amount’,
for example, A*D10 C*TM F*500, where the published fare equals R500. If you have more than one
ticket on the Pnr/Invoice with different fares and different published fares, then you must enter a
published fare for each ticket in the format
F*Amount1 / Amount2 / Amount3 with each published fare separated by a “/”. If the ‘prompt for difference reason code’ has been switched on the entry will change slightly to ‘F*Amount,yyy ’, the ‘yyy’ being the reason code
(separated by a comma)
