Blanket Cancellation Insurance

Purchase flight insurance and cancellation-fee waivers at the organization (or even Federal) level. An insurer would gladly underwrite such a policy, and employees could then purchase non-refundable tickets (a frequently offered suggestion) without fear.


Right now, employees must take on personal risk while trying to save money for their agencies -- and, predictably, a substantial amount of opportunities for cost savings are not captured.
