In addition to air travel and car rentals, CTS has significantly reduced the cost for each member group when they have transient housing, meeting, and/or conferencing needs. When using CTS to book conferences or meetings, CTS will negotiate a preliminary contract with the approved hotel on behalf of the group. This contract is then forwarded to the group for their approval and signature. CTS then finalizes the contract with the hotel.
