Depending on the workflow your company uses, they may require the skills and a can-do-attitude from an Authoriser to decide the fate of their traveller(s).

As an assigned Authoriser within the Locomote Corporate Travel Platform, it is your role and responsibility to review and approve or decline quotes, submitted by Travellers, Travel Arrangers and/or Travel Consultants.

If you are unable to Authorise the trip as you'll be away, you can delegate your duties to another Authoriser by following this article. Otherwise the Traveller can forward authorise onto another authoriser.
