When booking flights for government travel we are required to use a travel agency (ADTRAV). Most often we find our own flights on a commercial website (e.g. travelocity, expedia) and submit this to the travel agent. The cost of the flight is always significantly more through the travel agent than that posted on the commercial website. I propose that government employees be allowed to book their own flights through a commercial travel site and eliminate this extra travel agent charge.
