A Destination Management Company (DMC) is a company based in a particular country or destination that acts as a local expert on the ground in all matters to do with travel and logistics. DMCs generally offer a range of services such as guided sightseeing, local transportation, hotel bookings and airport meet and greets. Overseas tour operators and travel agents normally contract with a local DMC to look after their clients once they arrive in a country, so a DMC usually works with a number of tour operators and travel agents from around the world. In addition, DMCs can handle bookings which come to them from direct clients overseas.
The Sri Lanka Collection represents The Fabulous Getaway, the umbrella under which two of Sri Lanka’s most prestigious travel companies operate – Red Dot Tours and SriLankaInStyle. While the two companies maintain their individual brand identity when serving the FIT market, they market themselves as The Fabulous Getaway to tour operators and travel trade partners. Offering bespoke itineraries and a range of innovative and imaginative experiences designed to enhance a journey, the merger of the two brands in 2014 allowed TFG to provide an unparalleled white-label service to their clients. It also enabled them to maintain their competitive prices and offer a wide range of itineraries to tour operators, supported by a strong operations team and a dedicated service team excelling in customer care. Experienced chauffeur guides were integral to both brands and the merger ensured Sri Lanka’s best-trained, most in-the-know individuals now lead customers on unique TFG journeys.
