Travel Technology Association Files Comments with DoT Supporting Transparency & Consumer Protections

Travel Tech

The Travel Technology Association (Travel Tech), the voice of the travel technology industry and consistent advocate for public policy that supports a competitive and transparent marketplace, filed comments today in response to the Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) on “ Enhancing Transparency of Airline Ancillary Service Fees ” (DOT-OST-2022-0109). “Travel Tech has long supported the U.S. Department of Transportation’s efforts to ensure consumers have access to critical ancillary fee information. We did so in 2014 and are doing so again in 2023,” stated Laura Chadwick, President & CEO of the Travel Technology Association. “For too long, consumers have lacked the consistent ability to know the true cost of different flight options.” In its comments, Travel Tech addresses how ancillary fee information should be provided to ticket agents. In its proposed rule, the DOT seeks to omit global distribution systems from receiving mandatory ancillary fee data from airlines. “Travel Tech strongly recommends that ancillary fee data be shared with all channels that distribute fare and schedule information,” Chadwick continued. “It is the most simple and direct way to solve the issue of ancillary fee transparency for consumers.” Travel Tech also filed a petition today requesting a hearing on DOT’s proposed requirement to display the critical ancillary fee information on the first page of online search results. Travel Tech addresses this matter in its comments. “Our members are the leading innovators in creating consumer-friendly online travel information sites. We are deeply concerned about the DOT’s first-page search results requirements included in the proposed regulation. These rules, if adopted as written, will clutter and confuse the online air travel shopping experience for consumers. This is especially true for travel comparison sites that display multiple airlines’ schedules and fares,” said Chadwick. “In our comments and hearing petition, we argue that the Department should not displace ticket agents’ well-established expertise with a government-regulated website design mandate. Ticket agents should have the flexibility to design appropriate displays of ancillary fees and develop innovative new methods for consumers as well,” Chadwick continued. ### About Travel Tech The Travel Technology Association (Travel Tech) is the voice of the travel technology industry, advocating for public policy that promotes transparency and competition in the marketplace to encourage innovation and preserve consumer choice. Travel Tech represents the leading innovators in travel technology, including global distribution systems, online travel agencies and metasearch companies, travel management companies, and short-term rental platforms.

‘Ready for Ron’ launches $3.3 Million National Independent Expenditure Campaign

Ready for Ron

Ready for Ron, the only credible independent group working to draft Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to run for President, launched a $3.3 million Independent Expenditure campaign to build the grassroots “ground game” to support a DeSantis Presidential candidacy. As detailed in a recent FEC report the campaign includes $2.3 million in national television advertising – at a rate of $100,000 per week – and $1 million for phone, mail, and digital outreach efforts. “This is a critical investment to engage the public with our message that Joe Biden and the Democrats are the problem, and electing Ron DeSantis is the solution. We must build up the national volunteer network it will take to win,” stated Dan Backer Counsel to Ready for Ron. “Following 3 straight election losses, it is clear, blowing big money on consultants for flashy ads that just talk at voters fails – but we see time and time again that our unique strategy of direct engagement creates real results around which we can build a winning ground game. We are pursuing a volunteer driven strategy that cuts out high-priced consultants and puts every penny into building the infrastructure to support a DeSantis candidacy.” In an interview with the Financial Times, Backer explained that “the purpose of the ad spending was to create ‘the backbone of a real ground game’ for DeSantis and ‘convince DeSantis that he has the grassroots support to run and win in a general election’. He added that Ready for Ron wanted to ‘bring in a whole host of people who aren’t part of the current universe’, including those who are not part of Trump’s base of conservative voters, which has dominated Republican campaigns in recent years. Fox News reported that In November Ready for Ron had already announced its petition has received more than 100,000 signatures. The petition is also the focus of a lawsuit Ready for Ron brought in the U.S. District Court for D.C. against the Federal Election Commission (FEC) challenging an FEC Advisory Opinion preventing Ready for Ron from sharing with Governor DeSantis the names of those who signed a petition encouraging him to challenge Joe Biden. Comments from Dan Backer featured in a Newsmax story focused on how the Ready for Ron “…spending should help ‘offset any competitive advantage that any other campaigns may or may not have”….between now and a hoped-for eventual announcement of a DeSantis candidacy. Politico also reported the news in its popular Playbook and Influence newsletters. In interviews with The Daily Caller and The Washington Examiner, Backer stated, “Ready for Ron is investing heavily in drafting Ron DeSantis to run for president in 2024, knowing that he is the Republican Party’s best chance to win back the White House. DeSantis’ pro-freedom platform has made Florida the best state to live in America — I know, I moved here — and we won’t stop until that platform goes national for all Americans to enjoy.” Since its launch in late May, Ready for Ron has enlisted more than one hundred twenty thousand supporters to build on-the-ground grassroots support, generated significant media attention, and produced and placed advertising to convince Ron DeSantis to run for President. Ready for Ron has emerged as the most successful and credible independent organization in support of a Ron DeSantis candidacy. Following nearly nine months of work by Ready for Ron, Governor DeSantis has a growing lead in polls in key states. The advertising efforts, phone calls, petition, and grassroots campaigns are helping generate significant leads in early primary and key battleground states and in the hearts and minds of the American people. Ready for Ron continues its TV and online advertising efforts to engage Americans to sign the petition at ReadyForRon.com to Draft Ron DeSantis to run in 2024. ### For more information or to schedule an interview with a ‘Ready for Ron’ spokesperson, please contact Dan Rene at 202-329-8357 or dan@readyforron.com.

Minuteman Press Franchise in Denver Acquires 31-Year Business A Great American Print Shop

Minuteman Press International Inc

Abel Corral, owner of Minuteman Press in Denver located at 4725 Paris Street, Suite 200, has acquired independent printing business A Great American Print Shop from retiring owner Frank Hibberd. A Great American Print Shop operated in Denver for 31 years. When Frank received a mailer from Minuteman Press, he reached out to Regional VP Jack Panzer. Jack says, “Frank wanted to retire and I told him about our unique ability to help independent print shops sell their business. I connected him with Abel, who had expressed interest growing and expanding his business through an acquisition. I am glad they were able to work out a deal, and I wish Frank all the best in retirement.” On the acquisition, Abel Corral says, “The acquisition came about on the heels of our three year anniversary; this is also our second acquisition in two years. I was looking for a way to grow my business and so I let it be known to Jack Panzer that I’d be interested in acquiring another print shop.” Abel continues, “A Great American Print Shop was strategically located within an area that I already reach and market to and so this acquisition just seemed like a good fit. I really liked that this was an established business with growth potential that I feel my team could capitalize on. The potential upside, close proximity, and perfect timing all came into play.” He adds, “The acquisition included an established client base, paper inventory, some equipment including cutters, and access to Frank during the transition. I expect this acquisition to help increase revenue by 20-25%. Also, this acquisition benefits AGAP’s customers in three key ways: First, we have received all of the previous artwork for AGAP clients to ensure a seamless transition as we serve their print, design, and mailing needs. Second, we will be able to offer promotional products and apparel to AGAP clients, which were not previously available. Third, we will be providing value-added local customer service and client support. Our Minuteman Press location is near Peoria & Interstate 70: 4725 Paris St. #200, Denver, CO 80239, inside the Pinecreek Office Center. We are also offering free delivery to AGAP customers.” Abel concludes, “I’m very grateful that my Regional VP Jack Panzer helped me by presenting this opportunity and helping me through the process. I expect this could be a game-changer for our business.” Abel Corral’s Minuteman Press franchise in Denver is located at 4725 Paris Street, Suite 200, Denver, CO 80239.

Goodway Group has pioneered a remote workplace since 2010 and has a deep history of providing flexibility and greater work-life balance. To meet the needs of the evolving workforce and times, Goodway Group continues to adapt its work culture to address new challenges.

The winners—top companies with 200 or fewer employees and top companies with more than 200 employees—reflect the highest overall numerical scores based on an analysis of questionnaires submitted by employers and survey responses from their employees. “The tight labor market forced every business in the industry to compete for talent, and the 2023 Best Places to Work winners proved the value of understanding what employees want today,” said Dan Peres, president and editor-in-chief of Ad Age. “Companies will face challenges this year with the economy and ongoing effects of the pandemic, but winning workplaces understand that taking care of employees is central to business success.” Ad Age produced Best Places to Work 2023 in partnership with Best Companies Group, a research firm specializing in identifying and recognizing great places to work.
