GSA offers many travel services and special programs for federal agencies and employees, including:

  •  Travel Services Solutions

The Travel Services Solutions is a new multiple award schedule that provides federal agencies with one-stop-shopping for all travel management needs, and will replace the current Travel Management Center contracts that expire in 2005. Travel Services Solutions includes Travel Consultant Services and Travel Agent Services.

Travel Consultant Services contractors provide professional advice on many travel related matters, such as developing strategies for adoption of e-Travel Service.

Travel Agent Services offer federal agencies the opportunity to contract for discount airline, bus, rail, hotel, and car rental services.

  •  City Pair Program

GSA’s City Pair Program is for federal travelers on official business. Airfares are based on one-way routes permitting agencies great flexibility in planning multiple destinations.  Under the City Pair Program, advance ticket purchases are not required, and there are no charges by airlines for cancellations or changes. The airfares offered under the City Pair Program average a 74 percent discount off comparable commercial fares.

  •  Lodging

GSA offers two lodging programs for federal employees on official travel. These programs do not overlap. 

The Value Lodging (VL) program provides federal travelers accommodations at within per diem, stateside and abroad.

The Federal Premier Lodging Program (FPLP) provides lodging services at the top 77 federal destinations using contracts that adhere to federal per diem rates.

  •  Travel Charge Card

GSA provides federal agencies and travelers with an efficient and cost-effective way to pay for travel expenses through the use of the government’s travel charge card.
