Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Wednesday, 25 June 2008

Corporate travel management consultancy, FCm Travel Solutions Greater China, has launched a new executive leisure service that offers specialised and high-end leisure travel management services for busy executives and VIPs.

Provided by FCms dedicated leisure team in Greater China, the new service offers complete leisure travel management for executives in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Beijing.

The service includes destination knowledge and information, airline bookings, sourcing and booking of all types of accommodation, advice and bookings for tour options, customised tours, door-to-door transfers in some regions, and the management of complex multi-point itineraries. It also includes general travel services such as assistance with visas, passports and insurance.

General manager of FCm Greater China, David Fraser, said the service provided highly personalised travel consultation.

Executive leisure is all about one-to-one service, where our consultants develop a very specific knowledge of the clients interests, needs and preferences in travel, he said.

Our executive leisure team features experienced, native English-speaking consultants who have dealt extensively with western and expatriate business. They are very much in tune with the distinctive needs and interests of these markets.

Executives can deal direct with knowledgeable, well-travelled consultants who have strong destination experience and an appreciation of their individual tastes. Our people are not simply there to make bookings, but to share their extensive wealth of information and ideas on destinations and the options available to them.

Once our travel manager consults with the executives, they take care of all the arrangements with strong attention to detail and any specific requests, Mr Fraser added.

Executive leisure, particularly in Chinas expatriate community, had been on the rise over recent years. In Hong Kong alone, leisure travel now comprises up to 20% of FCms total turnover. 

We have also identified a growing need in the corporate community, where many companies are managing a multitude of travel bookings for expatriates who are taking short breaks intra-Asia or flying long-haul for their annual home leave, said Mr Fraser.

There are major benefits for companies who use just one consultancy to manage their corporate travel as well as all this executive leisure activity. Theres not only the time it saves their own people to make bookings, but also the travel cost savings FCm can produce through our global network and industry alliances.

Mr Fraser said he expected Europe and Australia to become increasingly popular for executive leisure travel out of Greater China.

We are starting to book more holiday travel to places like the UK, Spain, Italy, Greece and the Maldives, as well as Australia and New Zealand. Within Asia, the most popular destinations include Thailand, Koh Samui and Phuket, particularly with the opening of more boutique resorts and spas in these areas, he said.
