FCM Travel Solutions has created Marketplace, a virtual gateway to the TMC’s proprietary and specially negotiated airfares, hotel rates, car rental and rail booking options. The move, according to the company, underpins its approach to giving customers access to the widest choice of business travel content via multi-channel online and offline sources from across its global network. FCM says clients have access to specialist fares from 420 airline partners, 112 global rail providers and car rental deals in 97 countries. Marketplace also offers 20 million room rates including 5 million negotiated rates at 650,000 properties globally and 2.3 million “exclusive” promotional room night rates at 60 hotel brands worldwide. Mick Heitzinger, product director for FCM EMEA, said that not only does Marketplace give customers access to FCM’s global content in one place, but it also embraces disrupters and new entrants to the distribution landscape to ensure that customers have full availability and visibility.
