We regard our finalist nomination as success in itself – nine really is a charm,” says TravelManagers’ Executive General Manager Michael Gazal.“We are extremely grateful for the support of our partner suppliers. It is testimony to how highly TravelManagers is regarded by these suppliers, to be consistently nominated in NTIA’s prestigious ‘Best Travel Agency Retail – Multi Location’ category again this year.“TravelManagers is a 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year business. We recognise that behind the scenes central and local state-based support is crucial to the success of our personal travel managers. The locally-based business partnership managers, combined with the national partnership office providing technology, training, marketing, ticketing and fares and all round support, adds huge value and makes that extra difference when it comes to service standards.“With our personal travel managers having full 24/7 access to all systems including mid and back office, this enables them to process every aspect of their client’s booking at any time that suits them. Our personal travel managers can then focus on the tailoring of travel arrangements to suit their individual client’s tastes and needs and deliver on our promise of providing exceptional client service. With our continued advanced technology focus and personal travel manager knowledge and experience, our clients receive the best travel experiences and value for money holidays that is unrivalled in the industry. “We are extremely proud that our personal travel managers on average, have 21 years of industry experience. It is this knowledge and expertise, combined with their genuine love and passion for travel that ensures their clients receive tailor made and co-created itineraries the majority of which are based around personal experience which we attribute to being a key to our success.” IMAGE: TravelManagers’ Executive General Manager – Michael Gazal NTIA AwardsTravelManagerslast_img read more
