Our Public Sector Global Travel and Venue Solutions commercial agreement is now live.

Whether your organisation’s travel is mainly domestic, or if you have more complex needs that include booking travel from a number of different countries, our new commercial agreement covers all of your requirements.

Regardless of the simplicity or complexity of your requirements, our new Public Sector Global Travel and Venue Solutions (PSGTVS) commercial agreement provides a one-stop-shop solution, meaning you can have a single supplier managing all of your travel and venue needs.

The basics

The new agreement is structured into 2 solutions: 

  • Solution A

Has been designed to cater to customers who have booking needs in the UK and also require services to be provided locally in other countries around the globe.

This is a single-supplier solution, provided by FCM Travel Solutions, that uses a direct award only. 

To access this solution, you can engage directly with FCM to complete your call-off contract or, if you require help and support, contact our experts.

  • Solution B

This solution gives customers a one-stop-shop for all their travel and venue sourcing requirements. 

There is a choice of 3 suppliers – Clarity, Click Travel and Travel Planet – meaning this solution can be accessed in 2 ways. Customers can simply direct award to their chosen supplier or run a further competition amongst the suppliers.

For further information on whether to direct award or go to further competition please read our customer guide.

Book with ease

As many people are confident booking their own, personal, travel requirements online, most organisations prefer their staff to self-serve and book online for their business travel as well. 

The 4 suppliers on this agreement each provide an online tool that allows users to find and book most of their air, rail, hotel and venue requirements.  

You can contact any of the suppliers to request a demonstration of their tools by visiting the Products and Suppliers section of our PSGTVS webpage.
