Bringing this thread up again, since my frustration is along these lines... First off, I dance with a pro that prices comps quite reasonable, and often he will stay at a hotel offsite to save expenses even though I did not expect him to do so. So my gripe may not be valid, but here it is!! So we decide months ago on a comp requiring air travel. As soon as we decide on this I start a flight search because I know this flight is going to be expensive and I want to control costs best I can... I book my flight at a good price and pro waits. So now the flights are about $300 more. Since I will pay pros travel in the back of my mind I was thinking..why did you wait until about 10 days before a comp to book a flight? I think all of the AMs of a pro/am partnership understand that the pros travel expenses are part of our cost to compete, and willingly accept it. Yet now I question is it not reasonable to expect that the pro makes effort that his travel expense at my cost is the best value?... I mean I did it for myself, found the best price, should not I expect the same?? Rant over!!
