What is a Travel Management Company?

“A TMC is a travel agent that fully manages the business travel requirements delegated by an individual, company or organisation to fundamentally save clients both time and money” – TMC Finder

At Selective Travel Management, we’re taking things back to basics to help you understand what exactly a Travel Management Company (TMC) is and how we can help simplify your business travel needs.

Whilst a traditional travel agent provides leisure travel for people like you and me (B2C – business to consumer), a TMC supplies and manages business travel for another business or organisation (B2B –business to business). For example, our parent company, the World Travel Centre based in Dublin, provides leisure and group travel such as holidays to the general public, whilst we specialise in providing B2B travel. This includes those travelling for conferences, trade shows or business meetings, with us supplying air, rail, hotel bookings and car hire, all whilst being policy compliant.


Why Choose a TMC?

The value of using a TMC like ourselves far outweighs the benefits of trying to manage travel on your own. A recent GBTA study found that over the course of a year, nearly three quarters of all those travelling for business had encountered some sort of problem. This included things like delays, missing connecting flights, concerns over safety and having no insurance policies in place. At Selective, we are here to manage these stressful situations for you, and with 24/7 support available, you can feel assured that there will always be someone here to help.

With access to all major booking systems, and through our team of travel experts, we can find you the most cost-effective travel rate whilst removing the stress of having to book and manage your company’s travel yourself. With your very own dedicated account manager, your duty of care is our priority and with traveller tracking available, you can feel relaxed knowing your employees are in safe hands. Using the latest technology, let us streamline your costs and report your travel expenditure, saving you both time and money.
