Travel Policy Management
Effective management of your company travel policy is vital to decreasing costs. TMC employs quality control technology to map your policies and ensure adherence on each trip. Additionally, we provide comprehensive management reports to pin-point areas for improvement, as well as areas of cost containment success within your travel program.
Air travel is the largest portion of a company's travel budget and usually represents 70% of total travel expense. Airline volume agreements are not available to many companies due to volume thresholds and in most cases do not provide discounts on lower priced fares.
However, all airlines are very keen on new business and will offer a variety of discounts to attract new corporate travel. Travel Management Corporation is very proactive when working with airlines and knows what programs are available and how to secure the best options for each client. Savings can range from 5% to 35% depending upon the carrier and travel destinations.
Here are a few programs available:
Low Fare Software — Travel Management Corporation has the industry’s most effective low fare search tools, used on every reservation, including online bookings.
Small Business Programs — Many carriers have small business programs that reward companies for traveling on the specific airline by awarding free tickets and other “perks” when reaching certain volume levels.
Foreign Airlines — Some international carriers offer significant discounts and guaranteed upgrades to attract travelers from the mainstream U.S. airlines.
Negotiated Agreements —Travel Management Corporation will collect your historic purchasing data, as well as growth potential and required travel patterns, to secure a corporate volume agreement from an airline where possible.
Web Fares — We have web fares available for all major U.S. and many foreign carriers through our advanced software.
Fare Sourcing - Our international rate desk scrutinize and construct best routes and fares, but also source fares from either airline wholesalers or our GlobalStar partners where a better price options exist.
Low Cost Airlines — Both Southwest and Jet Blue, in addition to other low cost carriers can be easily booked through Travel Management Corporation agents and our GetThere online booking tool.
Unused Ticket Tracking — TMC saves your company money by automatically tracking, and reporting on total unused tickets so that they may be reused and not wasted
