Why Do I Need a Travel Management Company?

Travel Management Companies (TMC):

  • Provide an effective and efficient way to access travel content globally from a multitude of travel providers from a single source
  • Provide guidance on macro developments around the world impacting travel
  • Aggregate volumes across customers and this scale translates into lower fares from suppliers
  • Ensure travellers are supported in in trip planning and booking and in the event of disruption or emergencies
  • Enable travel policy compliance and effective cost and risk control through embedding of policy rules in booking systems and comprehensive reporting
  • Provide travel management expertise e.g. in travel safety and risk management and travel sustainability
  • Provide cost efficient access to best practices in travel management
  • Provide detailed cost, service, quality and carbon reporting
  • Enable effective return on investment measurement of travel activity

A specialist Travel Management Company, like Key Travel, goes even further by focussing on specific types of travel and engaging with suppliers to offer exclusive benefits, not available publicly e.g. specialist air fares and accommodation rates with enhanced benefits, and expert advice and support from experienced consultants.
