Huge congratulations to Ryan Wenger and the WhereTo team! WhereTo, an enterprise travel platform and technology company that simplifies and improves business travel planning used by corporations like Wal-Mart has been acquired by Flight Centre Travel Group (FCTG). 

WhereTo uses artificial intelligence to recommend corporate travel compliant hotels, flights and ground transportation that take into account criteria like traffic conditions, travel deals and personal preferences. WhereTo clients save an average of 30% on their travel expenditures. 

FCTG plans to integrate the WhereTo offering into products & services offered across both its Corporate Traveler and FCM Travel Solutions brands and that it is “eager to explore the potential application of WhereTo’s leisure offering, WhereFor,” a search engine that provides the best options based on travelers’ budgets. 

FCTG has made a number of significant investments in booking technology, content aggregation, AI, and mobile services to provide its corporate customers with best-in-class technology tools to help them stay ahead of the rapidly evolving corporate travel landscape, which they believe to be absolutely critical during these unprecedented times.
