Advantage in global move

ADVANTAGE is looking for global partners to serve business travel clients overseas.

The group is striking up relationships with prospective agencies abroad. Advantage Travel Centres director Peter Reglar said: “We are looking to set up partnerships with agencies around the world and build up a directory of agencies with like-minded aims to Advantage.”

The move has come in response to members who are increasingly going for accounts with multinational companies.

Reglar said: “Many companies now are European or US owned with offices worldwide and they need a business travel agency nearby. A global partnership would mean that a member who had a chance to gain a client in the UK, but who also had to service an office in Germany, could provide a partner agency in Germany to serve them and vice-versa.”
