Our Business Travel Centre provides the most cost-effective and professional travel service to our clients. We do this by engaging the best people, training them to listen to our clients’ needs, analyse these and offer the best options. Once the client confirms, these are then processed efficiently, promptly and professionally with the proper accounting details and management information provided.
We provide a fully comprehensive service that is second to none with the support and service you would expect from your supplier.
Utilising leading-edge travel systems, we can guarantee that whether you call, email or book via our online solution, the service and value for money you receive is second-to-none.
Having knowledgeable and experienced consultants in place for each area of your requirements will leave your team to concentrate on your business, confident with the knowledge that we are managing your travel effectively and efficiently.
Our role as a TMC is to save you money and provide greater control through our buying power, experience, and reporting processes. It is also so much more.
So why should you use a Travel Management Company?
Provide 24-hour support for your employees
Most TMCs will offer you a service that operates around the clock, every day of the year. As such, you can be confident that wherever your employees are or whatever help they need when they’re traveling, there’s someone on the end of the phone who will help them. If you’re booking your own travel, who does the traveler call at three in the morning because they’ve missed their flight or they’ve been involved in a crisis?
Improve compliance with your corporate travel policy
Not only will a TMC help you create one, but they will also enforce it for you too, and this is how they can increase compliance. A TMC will build your travel policy controls into their booking processes, so whether you book over the phone or online using their online booking tool, your travel policy rules will be applied to every reservation.
Reduce average transaction values
We will analyse your business travel spend and identify areas where you can save money. This is achieved in a number of ways, but includes negotiating discounts with airlines, hotels, and train operating companies; giving you access to discounted rates.
Give you your time back
Have you ever considered how much time each individual in your business spends researching and booking travel? Sure, we all want to find the best deal ourselves, but we can forget that the determination to search every nook and cranny for a cheaper rate can often cost more than the saving in lost time. If you were to hand over this responsibility to a TMC, your employees could focus on higher value tasks, which is what they were employed to do in the first place.
Make you a more responsible employer
How do you currently keep track of which employees are traveling, where they are and their future arrangements? How do you know if they’re prepared for the destinations they’re visiting? A TMC can help massively with this by tracking your travelers for you, so you always know where they are and how to contact them. They can advise on pre-trip information, so you know employees are fully prepared before they travel
Share their expertise
The knowledge of experienced business travel consultants is vast. As well as making the process of booking travel efficient and personal, business travel consultants are skilled at maximizing the value of every trip. For example, they may secure the lowest fare by being creative; they may obtain a better product for the same price
Centralise all your business travel needs
Using a TMC allows you to have everything related to travel in one place. From managing bookings to analysing data, you’ll have instant access to book and manage travel whenever you need to. A single point of contact also means you have just one relationship to manage, rather than having to meet with various travel suppliers as you try to negotiate deals for your business.
Flexible payment and invoicing options
A TMC will offer you various ways to pay for travel services, and will often mix and match to find the perfect solution. With individual, consolidated and electronic invoicing and tracking of employee numbers, cost centres, project codes and any other references you need, they can make the admin associated with payments and invoices much easier for you, which will save you time and money.
