What a TMC can do for you

If you are currently managing your own business travel you may have questions around the benefits of moving to a travel management company (TMC).


Here is a quick overview of the most frequently asked ones.

Why should I use a TMC?

There are a lot of elements below the surface that can impact the overall costs of your travel programme such as different airfare types, flexibility, time invested by staff, traveller safety and cost reconciliation. TMCs ensure all these elements work to deliver long term savings.

What are the benefits of using a TMC?

Service, expertise and choice. With our highly experienced Travel Managers, you'll have a partner who uses industry knowledge and insight to lower cost and increase quality. As a flagship brand of the Flight Centre Travel Group, our global connections also provide you with exclusive deals and additional value sourced locally and abroad.

How will I maintain control?

We can help you increase control by delivering total visibility of your travel programme. We'll give you the big picture view of where your rands are going and help you develop and enforce a travel policy to ensure cost efficiencies.

Do you have any technology products?

A whole suite that supports each step of your journey. This includes online booking tools, approval systems, a mobile app, traveller safety tools as well as expense and reconciliation systems to help crunch the numbers. Best of all, every tech solution is backed up by your dedicated Travel Manager.

Are you BBBEE compliant?
