When you receive your airline confirmation, please review it very carefully for accuracy; and to see what airport you will be flying to/from and what day and time. You have 24 hours from the date of issue to notify Egencia of any changes that need to be made to your flight itenerary. If an attendee elects to change their travel information after the 24 hour grace period, any change fees will be the responsibility of the traveler.
Travel for dates other than those listed on your registration invitation will need approval from your supervisor.
