Our TMC are members of The Advantage Global Business Travel Partnership which is the UKs largest independent travel consortia, with 120 businesses locations across the UK and a group turnover of more than £4.5 billion (2019 figures). We utilise our membership with Advantage to benefit from their collective spend and group buying power which in turn allows us to maximise the cost saving opportunities within your travel programme.
Our membership means that we can leverage our collective spend to offer our clients best in market airfares and rates along with enhanced partnerships with leading ancillary and technology providers. This allows us to offer industry leading fares and rates to compete with larger multinational organisations, whilst our clients still benefit from the service, agility and flexibility of an Independent Travel Management Company. Our enhanced relationships with airlines, hotels, ancillary and technology providers also ensures that we have more leverage with our supplier partners.
The Advantage Global Business Travel Partnership not only strengthens our product offering that we provide to our clients but also means that we are ahead of industry news and updates. We have regular communication and networking with our industry peers and leaders within the Advantage Group. We ensure our clients are informed on all industry news and as their travel management partner we are at the forefront of change and ahead of the industry trends and changes.
