Description

WMGC Ltd as the Lead Authority on BATP are exploring a joint procurement approach (with VisitBritain (VB) and Commonwealth Wealth Games (OC). This is an open tender to see what the market has to offer in terms of either a providing a customised travel solution or something off the shelf. The majority of the Programme travel requirements will be lower end classes (i.e. not first or business class) due to this being public money. In consideration of the above details a travel management supplier is required to fulfil the travel requirements for 9 workstreams within the BATP Programme. Preference is for:
o Full account management service of travel bookings, including hotel, flight, rail and airport transfers and visa requirements where necessary. With an option for self-managed service.
o Flexibility built in if plans change, are cancelled or there is a need to postpone travel arrangements.
o Provision for 24/7/365 emergency support service.
o Clear and transparent pricing.
Further details of our travel requirements can be explored via Teams through those bidders that will express an interest and book slots for one to one 30-45 minutes interviews to explore options.
