- domestic travel fares (including to and from New Zealand) should be up to 30 minutes either side of the requested departure time
- international travel fares should be up to 2 hours either side of the requested departure time
- the best fare of the day offered should take the chosen travel class into account, according to the Victorian Public Sector Travel Policy. For example, where business class is approved, the best fare of the day should be the lowest possible business class fare.
- the best fare of the day should offer reasonable connections and minimal stop-overs wherever this is possible.
If a traveller needs flexibility for the return portion of their trip, the best fare of the day must represent a restricted outbound flight and a flexible or semi-flexible return flight
