P&MM, one of the UK’s leading employee benefits providers and UK travel agents, has launched the new P&MM Travel Club online portal, a highly valuable new system that employers can offer to staff to enable them to make substantial savings on holiday and travel bookings.
P&MM’s new Travel Club is a web portal where employees can book their own holiday and gain discounts of up to 14 per cent on line at many of the country’s leading tour operators including Thomas Cook, Airtours, Virgin, Club 18-30, Thomsons, First Choice and many more.
A first in the industry, the new discounted travel booking portal for employees will be both integrated into P&MM’s Lifestyle employee discount website as well as being offered as a stand alone product.
Historically, employees have been able to make the best savings on travel when booking via telephone through P&MM’s unique Travel Concierge service. However, given that 70 per cent of travel is now booked online, P&MMs new online Travel Club has been created to address this demand.
Employees are empowered in their holiday search by being able to search in real time and select the ideal holiday of their choice. Since agent commissions are passed back directly to the employee at the time of booking, this creates significantly beneficial rates for employees. It caters for all types of holiday maker and all bookings are fully ABTA, IATA and ATOL protected, giving security and peace of mind for the employee.
Richard Davies, P&MM’s Head of Employee Benefits comments: “With the annual holiday being one of the most substantial purchases made by an employee over the year, the ability to save up to 14 per cent can equate to a discount of hundreds of pounds. At a time when household budgets are seriously under pressure due to rising inflation, our new online travel portal will assist employees greatly by delivering unbeatable savings on their annual holiday; for some it may represent the difference between going on holiday or not. Holidays are key to employees’ well-being, not only during a holiday but also in the run up where the anticipation of the forthcoming break helps reduce stress levels.
“Travel carries broad appeal, irrespective of demographic or taste and this is why P&MM’s Travel Club is the ideal solution for any organisation of any size keen to incorporate a high impact new initiative which also promises quick and easy implementation into their benefits mix. “
P&MM has maintained its position as the industry market leader in discounted travel for employees. This is due to P&MM returning commissions earned as a travel agent direct to employees across over 750 tour operators.
Richard Davies concludes: “P&MM has a long established record of providing the best employee discounts on travel bookings in the employee benefits market and the addition of our new travel bookings portal means that we can now offer these great savings online as well as via our telephone service.”
