FCm Travel Solutions has strengthened its European network after signing a new partnership agreement with Alive, a travel company based in Portugal.
The Alive travel brand is an affiliate company of OnTourism Capital Investments, which represents the corporate and business travel branch of GeoWinds SGPS Holding.
Alive has operations in Portugal, Spain, Brazil and Angola.
As part of the arrangement FCm will add two new business travel centres in Lisbon and Oporto to its global operation.
FCm’s new travel teams in Portugal offer clients an end-to-end corporate travel management service and cutting-edge travel technologies for online booking, policy compliance and expense management.
Alive also specialises in incentive travel, meetings and incentive consulting management and group travel for sports events.
General manager of FCm’s European network, Franziskus Bumm, said the addition to FCm’s global network would boost the company’s local expertise and travel management capabilities in the region.
“Our new partner is very focused on technology solutions and providing personal service from travel teams that are highly experienced in managing travel programmes for companies of all sizes including multinational clients,” he explained.
“Alive offers a broad range of technology solutions for end-to-end corporate travel management.
“These attributes are highly regarded by FCm as it demonstrates both companies have operational, service and management synergies,” Bumm added.
