Academic Travel

FCM operates a dedicated academic travel division that provides tailored travel management solutions to meet the needs of universities, research organisations and schools. Whether your university has a large and complex travel program with thousands of travellers, or you are a school teacher coordinating an overseas group study trip – our academic travel specialists know how to help you with all your travel and procurement needs.

Our dedicated academic team provides support for Fringe Benefit Tax (FBT) regulations, travel policy, duty of care and reporting requirements. We can also help your organisation adopt travel solutions that deliver transparency, policy compliance and traveller satisfaction.

As an FCM academic customer you will have access to globally leading technology, products and support. FCM’s CONNECT suite of technology includes best in-market products and platforms. Our technology is built with the user in mind, connecting you to a range of exclusive products tailored to the needs of your procurement, travel bookers and travellers.

Broad Benchmarking

We know that having the ability to build powerful reports and configure dashboards to show the most-detailed information in an easy-to-understand way is crucial to your organisation’s travel performance.

So too, is the ability to benchmark across sectors, industries and organisations. With FCM, your academic organisation will have access to broad benchmarking capabilities in Australia and potentially the world.

No other TMC has the market-share and data that FCM has, as part of the corporate travel division of the Flight Centre Travel Group.

Under FCM your organisation can leverage a new level of benchmarking that will compare well beyond the academic sector and allow you to assess all aspects of your travel program, including travel policy, savings, traveller behavioural metrics, supplier content and product availability.

FCM and Campus Travel – 21 Years of Expertise

FCM’s academic travel division is built on 21 years’ experience as Campus Travel, Australia’s leading academic travel specialist.

In early 2019 Campus Travel joined forces with award-winning travel management brand FCM Travel Solutions, to create FCM’s new academic specialist division.

Established in 1998, Campus Travel was developed to look after the unique needs of the academic sector. Early on, we recognised that academic and research travel was best managed by consultants who understood the world of academic travel – remote and sometimes high-risk locations, complex itineraries, unique visa requirements, research grant constraints and the university matrix of travellers. We continue this expertise today with our dedicated team of academic consultants working in partnership with Australia’s leading universities, research organisations and group travel and event companies.

Mining and Resources

At FCM, we understand that managing travel for businesses and employees that service the mining sector requires unique industry expertise. Mining sites are often harder to access, crew changes rely on roster cycles, accommodation options can be limited and site regulations mean that car hire is not as straightforward as it is in other industries.

VIP Travel

FCM’s VIP concierge services program, Pinnacle, offers our valued clients an experiential, ‘high touch’ offering that is delivered by some of the industry’s most experienced and innovative travel managers.

Charter

FCM gives your business unrivalled access to a wide range of aircraft and jet charter services to support the corporate, mining, sporting and conference group, cargo and freight logistics and VIP and executive travel sectors via the acquisition of Australian charter specialist AVMIN.
