When an organisation has a frequent need for its people to travel, it can be really helpful to use a travel management company (TMC). A TMC specialises in providing business travel-related services such as flights, hotels, car rentals, insurance, visa processing, emergency assistance and more.
A TMC can handle all the logistics of a trip from start to finish, making sure you get the best fares, deals, the most appropriate arrangements, and, crucially, keep your travellers safe. Travel planning becomes more efficient because you are working with experts who can get the job done well, and at speed.
The right TMC will also be able to take a consultative approach to making your overall travel policies more effective, achieving optimum procurement objectives.
A TMC makes travel planning easier, more efficient and safer
The benefits of using a good TMC
To save time.
Tying together all the moving parts of a trip can be really time-consuming, especially if you’re trying to find the best deals on flights, hotels, and transportation. A TMC can take care of all the legwork, saving you time and hassle.
Saving time the Wings way
When you call us or use our online booking tool, you’ll be supported by a experienced Wings employee, with no frustrating call centre to navigate.
To save money.
TMCs have access to rates and discounts that may not be available to the general public. They can also use data about your current travel spend to implement cost-saving strategies.
Saving money the Wings way
With all your global data in one single platform, we can leverage the volume of your spend for maximum efficiencies.
TMCs typically offer 24/7 support, so you can reach out to them if you encounter any issues during your trip, although this may come with conditions. They can also assess travel in advance to reduce or eliminate risk.
Safety the Wings way
Our 24/7 support is provided by wholly owned and managed Wings global hubs, so there is no outsourcing safety in local markets, and no weak links in our data chain.
For a personalised service.
TMCs can provide personalised service and customised itineraries based on your preferences and needs.
Personalised service the Wings way
Traveller experience is not just lip-service – going the extra mile for our clients is part of our culture and a value every Wings employee is proud to uphold.
For knowledge and expertise.
When you are travelling to a new or unfamiliar destination but still have a job to do, a TMC can provide information and support services to help.
Knowledge and expertise the Wings way
Reassuringly, throughout our 30 years of experience as a TMC we have always specialised in travel to high-risk destinations.
Understanding your business
We know plenty about travel management, but over the years we’ve come to know quite a bit about your industry, too.
