Contract Management

Quality of Service

As a minimum, the establishments listed in the Accommodation portion of the Directory are required to provide safe, clean and comfortable accommodation. Concerns about a property or its services should be brought to the attention of the establishment's management and the Accommodation and Car Rental Contract Management Section of Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC).

Concerns about the quality of service received from car rental companies should be brought to the attention of the rental company and the Accommodation and Car Rental Contract Management Section of PSPC.

Each concern is investigated by PSPC and referred to the applicable establishment or car rental company or its corporate office for resolution. PSPC reserves the right to remove the offending property or car rental company's listing from the directory should they fail to take the appropriate corrective action.

Overcharges

In the event of an overcharge at an establishment or car rental company listed in the Directory, employees who have booked through the Government Travel Services contractor, HRG, should seek their assistance in rectifying the situation. Otherwise, it is the responsibility of the employee's department to claim a refund from the establishment or car rental company concerned. The claim must be supported by a copy of the invoice.

If the establishment or car rental company fails to refund the overcharge, all information and pertinent correspondence should be forwarded to the Accommodation and Car Rental Contract Management Section of PSPC.

Making Reservations

Making Reservations Through HRG

Employees of departments and agencies of the Federal Government participating in the Government Travel Service (GTS) may request accommodation or car rental reservations through the offices of the GTS contractor, HRG, in their region. The GTS contractor will also assist in the resolution of complaints when an accommodation or car rental reservation has been made on behalf of the employee.

Also, in order to prevent any overcharges, we encourage employees to verify the accommodation or car rental rate in the Directory to make sure that the correct rate was reserved by HRG as mistakes do happen from time to time.

Making Reservations Through Another Travel Agency

Please note that it is the employee's responsibility to make reservations using only the approved travel agency for their department or agency. As the Government of Canada has no contractual agreements with these travel agencies (non-approved), PSPC will not be able to assist employees who use non approved travel agencies should there be a problem with their reservation, even if the supplier that the agency made the reservation with (accommodation establishment or car rental company) is listed in this Directory. This would apply in cases whether the reservation was made directly with the agency or through their Web site.

Should employees not be sure which travel agency is the approved one for their department or agency, they should contact their Designated Departmental Travel Coordinator for assistance (see Designated Departmental Travel Coordinators List (DDTC)).

Making Reservations Directly with Accommodation or Car Rental Companies

Accommodations

The individual making the reservations directly with an establishment shall clearly indicate that the accommodation is for a Government of Canada employee traveling on government business (give name of department and branch), the room category desired and request the government rate. A reservation should not be accepted if the rate quoted for the room is higher than the one listed in this Directory. Should an establishment refuse to give the government rate, please contact the Accommodation and Car Rental Contract Management Section of PSPC for assistance.

Accommodations listed in the Directory with toll-free telephone numbers have agreed to honor the government rate when reservations are made using such telephone numbers. Please note that some establishments that do not list their toll-free telephone numbers in the Directory, may not honor the government rate when such telephone numbers are used to make a reservation.

At the time of registration, the employee should once again confirm that the appropriate government rate is being charged and provide proof that they are a government employee on official government business, if requested.

Car Rental Companies

The individual making the reservations directly with a car rental company shall clearly indicate that the car rental is for a Government of Canada employee traveling on government business (give name of department and branch), the car category desired and request the government rate (quote the government rate code displayed on the company information page in the Directory, if applicable). A reservation should not be accepted if the rate quoted for the car rental is higher than the one listed in this Directory. Should a car rental company refuse to give the government rate, please contact the Accommodation and Car Rental Contract Management Section of PSPC for assistance.

When the employee takes possession of the vehicle, the employee should once again confirm that the appropriate government rate is being charged and produce proof that they are a government employee on official government business, if requested.

Making Reservations On-line

In order to help employees research information on the different accommodation establishments or car rental companies listed in the Directory, PSPC publishes the Web site address for most of its suppliers.

However, PSPC would like to remind employees of certain things that they should keep in mind should they choose to make their reservations via a suppliers Web site:

  1. Not all suppliers list their Government of Canada rates on their Web site.
  2. Employees should make sure that the rate on the suppliers' site is the same as the one published in this Directory.
  3. Employees should verify the terms and conditions attached to the rates to make sure they are the same as the ones identified in the terms and conditions in this Directory.
  4. Should an employee decide to make a reservation at a rate that is different than the rate that appears in this Directory, PSPC will have no recourse in regards to the accommodation or car rental supplier, as our agreement is solely for the rates that appear in this Directory.

The recommendations above would also apply if the employee is making their reservation using the On-line Booking Tool (OBT) provided by HRG. PSPC would like to remind employees that if they cannot see the government rate listed either on the supplier's Web site or in the OBT, they should contact the supplier directly in order to inquire about availability.

Furthermore, if employees decide to use third-party Web sites (for example, Expedia™ or Travelocity™ ), they cannot contact PSPC if there are any problems with their reservation, even if the suppliers are listed in this Directory. These third-party suppliers offer rates at deep discounts and these rates are not covered under the agreements that PSPC has with its suppliers. Also, PSPC will not be able to assist employees should they encounter problems with their travel claims if such sites are used.

Cancellations

In the event that travel plans are changed, it is the responsibility of the employee to either advise the Government Travel Services contractor, HRG, or the accommodation or car rental company of any cancellation. Failure to do so may result in employees being billed for the room or car rental. Persons calling to cancel reservations must identify themselves to the answering agent, obtain the agent's name and the cancellation number and note the date and time the cancellation was requested.

Additional Information

General

National Joint Council Travel Directive

Accommodations

The listing of an establishment in this Directory does not constitute authorization for an employee to stay there when traveling on government business. The employer is responsible for authorizing accommodation to be used by the employee, in accordance with the current National Joint Council Travel Directive. If there is a difference in the interpretation of the information provided in this Directory and the National Joint Council Travel Directive, the Directive shall prevail. For any questions regarding the interpretation of the Directive, employees should contact their Designated Departmental Travel Coordinator for assistance (see Designated Departmental Travel Coordinators List (DDTC)).

Car Rentals

Federal Government Employees planning to travel on official business by rental vehicle should refer to the National Joint Council Travel Directive (Part III, Section 3.1.11 (c)) for policy on employee-driven vehicles. If there is a difference in the interpretation of the information provided in this Directory and the National Joint Council Travel Directive, the Directive shall prevail. For any questions regarding the interpretation of the Directive, employees should contact their Designated Departmental Travel Coordinator for assistance (see Designated Departmental Travel Coordinators List (DDTC)).

Loyalty Programs

Government employees may join loyalty programs and redeem benefits for personal or business use, at no additional cost to Canada.

If you have any questions concerning Loyalty Programs, please contact your Designated Departmental Travel Coordinator. A list of coordinators is available at the following address: Designated Departmental Travel Coordinators List (DDTC)

Cost Reimbursable Contractors and other travelers

Some accommodation and car rental companies have agreed to extend their government rates to cost reimbursable contractors, consultants or advisors working under contract for the Federal, Provincial or Territorial Governments listed in the Identified Users section below. Departments are advised to provide cost reimbursable contractors and other travelers with a letter, advising establishments and car rental companies that such persons are on government business and specifying the duration of their contract and destination. Unless such identification is provided, contractors may not be eligible to receive government rates listed in the Directory. Establishments that have agreed to extend their rates to cost reimbursable contractors, consultants or advisors will have this information displayed in the Directory on their description page.

Accommodations

Government Identification Required

Identified Users traveling on government business must carry their government ID card with them as they may be requested to present government ID upon check-in. Employees may also be requested to provide written proof that they are traveling on official government business.

Some suppliers have agreed to extend their government rates to cost reimbursable contractors, consultants or advisors working under contract to an Identified User and traveling on official government business in performance of that contract. Identified users are advised to provide cost reimbursable contractors, consultants or advisors with a letter, specifying the duration of their contract or specifying that they are on travel status on behalf of the government and their destination.

Unless such identification is provided, employees/travelers may not be eligible to receive government rates listed in the Directory.

Internet Access Available at the Accommodation Establishment

Please be advised that Internet access offered by accommodation establishments may have costs attached to them depending on the level/speed required by the Identified User. It is the responsibility of the Identified User to verify if there are costs attached to the level/speed of Internet access they require.

Breakfast

Hotels offer various types of breakfast as part of their service, either at cost or as part of the room rate. When making their travel plans, employees should verify the hotel breakfast offerings and determine whether or not it meets their needs. If not, other hotels options should be explored or their individual needs discussed with their manager for approval of a reimbursement based on receipts, up to meal allowance amount.

Aboriginaly Owned Properties

Establishments that are aboriginaly owned and operated have been identified with the mention "Aboriginal Property" beside their name.

Environmental Ratings

To provide employees with environmentally friendly choices in matters of accommodation, the Accommodation Directory displays the Green Key ratings that are attributed by the Hotel Association of Canada. For a description of the ratings, please refer to Annex A - Environmental Ratings.

RéserVert Program

Public Services and Procurement Canada wishes to recognize the accommodation properties in the province of Québec that have obtained their certification in sustainable development through the RéserVert program.  Réservert is a Sustainable Development Recognition Program designed specifically for the Québec hotel industry.  Details on the RéserVert program, the individual fact sheets and the steps taken by each property are available for consultation on the web site: www.reservert.com (available in French only). Please note that accommodation properties listed on this site are not all part of the Accommodation Directory published by PSPC.

Accessibility for Persons with Disabilities

Some establishments may be able to accommodate persons with disabilities offering barrier-free building and service features to entrances, elevators, restaurants, lounges, guest rooms, bathrooms, service counters, way finding systems, conference areas, recreation areas, leisure areas and communications systems. Descriptions on the level of accessibility (1, 2, or 3) are available in Annex A - Accessibility.

Destination Marketing Fees

Destination marketing fees, which are charged in some high tourism regions, may not be mandatory charges. It is the employees/travellers responsibility to verify if these charges can be waived when they check-out of the accommodation establishment.

Car Rentals

Government Identification Required

Identified Users traveling on government business must carry their government ID card with them as they may be requested to present government ID when picking-up the rental car. Employees may also be requested to provide written proof that they are traveling on official government business.

Some suppliers have agreed to extend their government rates to cost reimbursable contractors, consultants or advisors working under contract to an Identified User and traveling on official government business in performance of that contract. Identified users are advised to provide cost reimbursable contractors, consultants or advisors with a letter, specifying the duration of their contract or specifying that they are on travel status on behalf of the government and their destination.

Unless such identification is provided, employees/travelers may not be eligible to receive government rates listed in the Directory.

Insurances

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW)

Employees are required to purchase Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) coverage from the car rental company, unless they have a government sponsored Individual Designated Travel Card (IDTC) that covers the CDW for vehicles listed in our Standing Offer only, a personal credit card that provides CDW, or the supplier does not accept the government sponsored IDTC.

Public Liability and Property Damage (PL/PD)

PL/PD insurance coverage provided by the car rental companies listed in the Directory is different in Canada and in the United States. In Canada, the daily rental rates include PL/PD insurance coverage of a minimum of one Million dollars ($1M). The coverage included in the daily rates in the U.S. is as follows: bodily injury $100,000 US per person to a maximum of $300,000 US per accident and; $25,000 US for property damage. Identified Users are advised that should they ascertain that this insurance coverage is insufficient, they can purchase additional liability insurance (refer to the National Joint Council Travel Directive, articles 2.2.5, 2.2.6, 2.2.7 and Appendix A).

Other types of insurance coverages

Car rental companies may offer other types of insurance coverage such as Personal Accident Insurance (PAI) or Personal Effects Coverage (PEC). The coverage offered by these insurances are already included with the Individual Designated Travel Card (IDTC) and through other government programs. As such, these types of insurance coverage should not be accepted by the employees. Should an employee decide to accept these types of coverage, they will be at his/her own cost and will not be reimbursed.

For information on additional drivers, coverage period and types of vehicles covered, please refer to the frequently asked questions on insurance page on the Shared Travel Sevices portal.

One-way Rentals

Be advised that although the car rental company is to inform the employee/traveller of the one-way charges at the time of booking or pick-up, it is also the responsibility of the employee/traveller to inquire as to what the charges will be as these can be considerable when kilometer charges are indicated. Also, one-way charges vary depending on the car rental company chosen. Employee/travellers should verify with the other companies listed for that location to see if savings could be achieved by using a different company with lower kilometer rates.

Also, some counters of the different car rental companies listed do not offer one-way rentals. If this is the case, it will be indicated in the "Services Offered" section of the companie's page in the Directory.

Roadside Assistance Programs

Most car rental companies offer roadside assistance programs. These programs include items that, for the most part, are already included in the terms and conditions of the Standing Offers. For this reason, should an employee decide to purchase this option, it will be at his/her expense and will not be reimbursed.

Airport Improvement Fees

Car rental companies located at airports often have to charge Airport Improvement Fees to their customers. In the majority of cases, these fees appear on the rental agreements/invoices as CFC. Be advised that these charges are over and above the rate and must be paid by all government travelers. Employees will be reimbursed for these charges as these are not optional, are mandated by the airport authorities and are charged to all customers.

Airport Concession Recovery Fee - Vancouver

Car rental companies located off-site of the Vancouver airport have been granted authorization to pick up passengers at the airport even though they may not have a physical counter in the terminal or on the airport grounds. As such, they must charge Airport Concession Recovery Fees (ACRF) to all customers that land at the airport within 24 hours prior to the rental. Travellers will be required to sign a special disclaimer on all rentals in the Vancouver area (off-airport). We recommend that travellers pick-up their car rentals at the airport with one of the three approved suppliers in order to avoid any confusion regarding this fee. This would not apply to rentals made after 24 hours of arrival or rentals made by local employees in the Vancouver area. In these cases, simply indicate on the disclaimer that you did not land within the last 24 hours at the Vancouver International Airport and this fee will not be applied.

Most Economical Supplier

Employees should make every effort possible to utilize the least expensive car rental company in each of the locations listed. To assist travellers in choosing the most economical supplier, rental rates in this Directory are listed in ascending order by price for airport and city locations.

Hand Controls for Persons with Disabilities

Some car rental companies have indicated that vehicles with hand controls for persons with disabilities are available at some of the rental locations. Be advised that most companies require 24 to 48 hours notice in order to install these devices in their vehicles. It is the employees' responsibility to inquire as to the wait period for installation of these devices by the company.

Hybrid Vehicles and Alternate Fuels

The Government of Canada encourages employees to consider environmentally responsible practices when renting vehicles for the conduct of government business. The automotive industry has recently begun producing increasing numbers of high-efficiency vehicles, most notably hybrids. However, the demand for such types of vehicles for rental purposes is still at an early stage. We are encouraging employees on official government business travel to rent such vehicles wherever available and practical. Should this not be possible or practical, employees may wish to consider selecting other types of vehicles with reported lower fuel consumption or emissions when selecting a rental vehicle. Should employees wish to compare vehicles based on their fuel consumption or CO2 emissions, they can consult the Fuel Consumption Ratings Tool available on the Natural Resources Canada Web site.

Winter Tires on Rental Vehicles

Most rental companies provide the option of having snow tires installed on their rental vehicles. However, there are usually costs to this option and these costs and their application are now indicated in the Car Rental Directory. In most cases, when this option is offered, the reservation must be made at least 24 to 48 hours prior to pick-up in order to give the car rental company time to have the winter tires installed on the vehicle. PSPC would also like to remind employees of the following:

  • Although it is not mandatory in all the province, winter tires are mandatory on some highways in British Columbia. We encourage you to verify with the car rental company if they are required for the area you will be traveling to;
  • In the province of Québec, snow tires are mandatory on all vehicles between December 15 and March 15;
  • For all other provinces and territories, there are no laws concerning mandatory use of snow tires.

Vehicle Categories

The daily rental rates are for vehicles in the following categories:

  • Hybrid
  • Compact
  • Intermediate Sedan
  • Standard Sedan
  • Full Size Sedan
  • Mini-Van
  • Standard SUV

Should employees wish to compare vehicles based on their fuel consumption or CO2 emissions, they can consult the Fuel Consumption Ratings Tool available on the Natural Resources Canada Web site.

Employees must contact the car rental companies to determine in which category a specific vehicle model belongs to, as companies do not always classify car models in the same categories. For example, a Civic may be considered as a compact by supplier A, but be in the intermeditae sedan category for supplier B.

Government of Alberta Instructions

The accommodation section of the 2016 Accommodation and Car Rental Directory applies to employees of the Government of Alberta. The Car Rental Section of the Directory does not apply to employees of the Government of Alberta.

Government of Alberta organizations eligible to participate in the Accommodation Directory include Offices of the Legislative Assembly, the Executive Council, Departments, Regulated Funds, and Provincial Agencies identified in the Government Estimates which are still active as Government entities, including the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission, and Alberta Treasury Branches.

This Directory does not replace any regulations, directives, or guidelines, in whole or in part, that govern business travel of Government of Alberta employees.

Reservations should be made directly with the establishments and not by or through outside reservation services or travel agencies. Reservations made with listed accommodations are subject to room availability, since this Directory does not grant priority status.

The individual making the reservation should clearly indicate that the accommodation is for an employee of the Government of Alberta traveling on Government business (give name of employer) and request the agreed government rate. At time of registration the employee should again request the government rate and, if required, produce proof that he/she is an employee of the Government of Alberta. Accommodation should not be accepted if the rate quoted for the room is higher than the one listed in this Directory.

Complaints should be promptly brought to the attention of the establishment's management. If satisfaction is not obtained, then the matter should be dealt with, in writing at the employer level. If satisfaction is still not obtained, full documentation should be sent to:
