According to a 2015 trend report by travel website Skift, business travel is no longer just about work and meetings but about lifestyle - embracing the destination and making the trip a memorable experience. In a survey of international travellers published last year, 60% said they’ve taken bleisure trips, usually adding two vacation days to work-related travel.
FCM Travel Solutions is addressing this rapidly growing trend by expanding its Travel Club offering to accommodate the rise of ‘bleisure’ travellers. Travel Club is an exclusive member’s club dedicated to creating amazing holidays, supported by experienced and knowledgeable consultants with unrivalled access to thousands of discounted holidays, hotels, flights and tours.
Travel Club brings a corporate level of service to customer’s personal holidays, guaranteed to save members time and money. It ensures fast response, with calls answered immediately and emails replied to within 24 hours.
General Manager Bertrand Saillet says of the initiative, “As the corporate travel industry continues to evolve, diversifying in line with what’s trending is a priority for us. The need to tie in leisure travel with corporate travel has become an increasingly popular request and we are tailoring our services to meet the needs of our clients. Our focus is to maintain regular contact with our customers and ensure we provide an experience that fits in with their lifestyle.”
A highlight of the refreshed Travel Club is the range of perks on offer, from handpicked deals, genuine savings, 20% off travel insurance and birthday specials to hot deals, newsletters and club member giveaways. Packages are tailored to customer’s interests, for example Active Travel packages could include entrance to marathons, triathlons and golf tournaments, as well as a monthly star deal. Star deals change monthly and members can benefit from complimentary accommodation at top hotels.
The latest Travel Club services are now available to all employees from companies that are partnered with FCM Travel Solutions.
