Convenience, cost control, consolidation and careThe advantages of booking with the fc global hotel program.

When searching for accommodation, companies can be overwhelmed with booking options. However, there is one booking solution that provides the advantages of flexible corporate rates, a wide selection of properties worldwide and value added extras – the fc global hotel program.

Look no further and understand why this is the best option for your accommodation needs:

Automatic corporate room

allocation

Booking accommodation through your Travel Manager using the fc global hotel program automatically
assures your traveller of an allocated corporate hotel room, which is usually less noisy plus a little more
spacious allowing for more comfort.

Reporting and Recognition

All corporate bookings made through a Travel Manager are recognised as room night spend for
your traveller and your company. This enables more accurate tracking and reporting on your total
accommodation costs, consolidates your spend and can assist with negotiating any future volume
discounts.

Flexible ‘Best Rate of the Day’

The fc global hotel program provides the most flexible corporate accommodation rates. Due to the
level of flexibility offered, rates are extremely competitive, based on the best rate of the day. The fully
flexible corporate rate allows bookings to be cancelled and amended easily within travel policy, and
without incurring any penalty fees. Standard cancellation time is usually 6:00pm.

Duty of Care

Booking all hotel and car requirements through the one provider strengthens your company’s duty of
care, enabling you to always know where your people are.

One simple request

All your transfer and accommodation bookings can be made through one simple request to your
dedicated Travel Manager or through the corporate online booking tool. There is no need for you to
spend time researching options, speaking with multiple consultants, or submitting different enquiries
to different properties.

The added extras

Value-added savings can be enjoyed through the global SmartSTAY corporate benefits program.
Participating hotels offer travellers a minimum of three value added extras included in our flexible
corporate rates, at no extra cost and valid year round.

Frequent Flyer Points paid

Earn frequent guest and/or frequent flyer program points from every hotel stay when booking the
corporate hotel rate. In some cases, points are also paid on client negotiated rates booked through the
global distribution system.
