Juggling your workload is hard enough, but when in charge of your company’s travel and budget, it can become overwhelming. We work with many clients who used to book all their travel online, using the internet and various platforms to get employees to their destinations. Often when they start using a TMC they are surprised at the amount of time it saves them and wished they had switched sooner. 

So what are the benefits of using a TMC versus the DIY approach?

1. Time-saving We can guarantee to save you time, leaving you to focus on other more important tasks. Rather than spending valuable time trawling through various travel websites and checking for suitable flights and ground arrangements, we can do it all for you. Not only will a Travel Management Company find the best deals, ensuring that we are saving you money, but we’ll also offer you multiple alternatives, including different times and hotel options, following your location and budget requirements.

2. Contact us 24/7 Unfortunately, some flights do get cancelled, but the last thing you want is your CEO contacting you to inform you of this on a Saturday evening! Let the Travel Management Company take care of resolving these matters for you. We can make the changes quickly and easily and take care of your CEO’s travel needs, while you enjoy the rest of your evening, without interruption.

3. Expertise It might seem like a good idea to book that business class flight on a less reputable airline because the price is right. However, as industry experts, we can guide you as to the relative merits of each airline, making sure you are making the right choice for your CEO. We can also recommend various hotels, based on our experience and expertise. Most travel agents have good relations with the hotels and have visited them first hand, so we get to know quickly which ones are good for business clients and which ones you should avoid.  Location is also important so, if you are struggling with Google maps, working out where each hotel is, we can save you invaluable time and effort.

4. Secure Flights If you are waiting for approval or confirmation on various business trips but you are worried about availability, we have the ability to hold flights. This will ensure that they can get a quote, make arrangements with the client/passenger and come back to book. You can also be safe in the knowledge that the price will not have changed and avoided them having to go around in circles.
