What Is A TMC?

Business travel is forever growing, with employees travelling overseas to attend global meetings and events on a regular basis. With various trips and expenses to handle, turning to a travel management company (TMC) is becoming an ever more popular option. A TMC is there to deliver the best solutions to meet the needs of a business’s travels, booking trips with their personal rates and connecting them with travel professionals across the world.

Alongside a TMC meaning that you don’t have to worry about booking corporate business travel itself, a travel management company manage a whole lot more. Once the travel is booked, they will be able to cover everything from travel policies at the best rates available to hiring a car to transport your employees to their accommodation for the night.

For businesses of all sizes, a TMC will tailor their solutions to your personal requirements to make the process as efficient as possible. Whatever the industry, the extensive experience of a reputable TMC allows them to support your needs and provide you with a leading service that helps you make the most of your global connections.

The Purpose of a TMC

There is no one solution that works for everyone, requiring a TMC to work with each business to establish a solution. As well as your TMC meaning that you can take the hassle out of bookings, let them handle all of the additional extras such as:

  • Flight management
  • Visa and passports
  • Hotel or accommodation bookings
  • Rail travel
  • Car hire and ancillaries
  • Events, meetings and conferences
  • Leisure travel
  • 24/7 emergency assistance

The Benefits of Working with a TMC

Once you’ve chosen a trusted TMC to partner with, liaising with your travel management company to receive the most effective service for your business can provide an array of benefits both practically and financially.

Lower Fares

Organisations within the travel sector can partner with a TMC meaning that they have exclusive access to better prices on flights, hotels and other providers on both a local and global scale. These fares are not accessible to regular businesses and can mean significant savings can be made, especially if a business requires a large amount of travelling.

Professional Insight

With a high level of knowledge in the industry, your TMC is on hand to recommend the best solutions to save both time and money through efficient routes and great deals. Your travel manager will be available to help you with any issues that may arise or to book any last minute trips that may pop up, taking the stress off of your hands so you can focus on your business itself.

Travel Policies

When you or your employees are travelling overseas, their cooperation and wellbeing is a necessity. Ensuring that suitable travel policies are in place will mean that everybody involved will know what is acceptable on the trip and any expenses are established beforehand to avoid issues with miscommunication. Working with a TMC will help to make sure that you cover all necessary ground and can establish a sufficient policy for all of the attendees.

Keeping Track

Keep a track of the expenses used on travel when you partner with a TMC meaning that all costs are managed by a single source. Your TMC will send you reports containing all of the costs of your business travel to help you manage your budgets effectively and be able to analyse the data to make more informed business decisions.

Finding the Right TMC for You

Working with a reputable and experienced TMC will help ensure that your company needs can be met. During your initial discussions, gaining an idea of their capabilities and industry connections will allow you to compare these with your own budget and level of travelling to establish whether the partnership will be beneficial.

If you are working for a large scale business with a high demand or find yourself often needing last minute travel booking with little to no notice, finding a TMC who can work flexibly to meet your requirements will help avoid any problems and allow you to access the service you need at all times.
