Booking Options


For every event, we can set default booking options such as currency, whether travellers can see flight fare prices, and whether we want to manually or automatically approve booking requests.

On this page:

Currency

For every event, we will have to specify its currency. This currency will be used to retrieve flight fare pricing information, and to display the flight budget later on.

Note: Once travellers have been invited, the event currency can no longer be updated.

Event booking options

Flight Search & Booking Approval

Default options for flight search and booking approval can be set at the event level. These defaults can optionally be overridden when inviting travellers.

Price Information

By default, price information will not be visible for event travellers. Since SpeakerTravel only allows searching for flights that are within the specified budget, this is usually not needed. Some events do prefer to display price information, as it often helps to make travellers more price aware.

Booking Approval

By default, SpeakerTravel requires every flight booking request to be approved by the event owner. We can also enable automatic approval for our event.

Automatic approval will automatically perform flight booking for requests that are within budget. For travellers that request a flight within their budget overrun percentage, manual approval will be required.

For travellers where no budget is specified, booking will always have to be approved manually, regardless of this setting.
