TCC’s Chairman Mr. Maximilian Oppacher founded its operation after he and his friends, formerly backpacker tourists in Boracay, personally experienced the difficulties of having no access to tourist related services. The company was thus aimed at providing the growing needs for the increasing number of tourists who frequent the island.
Development and Expansion
Also, the accommodation and air ticketing department has grown to become a company in its own right; The Filipino Travel Center (FTC) which is now the biggest wholesaler and reseller of domestic tickets within the Philippines, specifically for Asian Spirit and Sea Air.
In 2001, TCC introduced the Internet Center at Boracay. Originally a ten station Internet cafe which has been enhanced and upgraded year on year. Today, customers can enjoy the fastest speed connection in the island for e-mails, chats, web surfing, games and downloads. Current specification includes 16 workstations with IBM PC’s and Samsung Flat Screen LCD monitors. With a 256kbps link provided by Innove and powered by GlobeQuest DSL, and 24-hour generator support, it is not surprising that the Internet Center gets an average of 150 to 200 visitors daily. In 2004 a similarly equipped new Internet center with 10 workstations and 128kbps link was opened at Tourist Center-Bohol.
TCC additionally extended its services by creating a payment processing facility to acquire credit card payments from more than a thousand resorts and establishments across the Philippines.
