Corporate Traveller Oxford is celebrating 10 years in the city as a specialist provider of business travel management services to companies who spend £50,000 to £2 million per annum on business travel.  Local clients include Gomaco, a world leader in concrete machinery, and Global Engage, who run life science conferences and training sessions. The Oxford team also look after clients in the pharmaceuticals, healthcare, retail, agriculture, biotechnology, media and sports sectors.

The Oxford team have notched up 65 years of service between them, which means that they truly understand their client’s business travel needs and preferences, from complex travel arrangement and cost savings on flights and hotels to offsetting carbon emissions and providing 24/7 support in an emergency.

Corporate Traveller doesn’t just go the extra mile for its customers, it also cares about its staff; whether that’s a remedial standing desk, flexible working to suit families or promoting equality and inclusivity.

Corporate Traveller and parent company Flight Centre have been at the forefront of promoting equality and inclusivity, recently winning Travel Trade Gazette’s LGBT friendly travel company of the year.

Charitable causes and community initiatives play a key role in Corporate Traveller’s ethos. The Oxford team have previously taken part in various activities to raise money for good causes; including dress-down Fridays in the office, cake sales, the Thames Walk and even the Ice-Bucket Challenge. This year Corporate Traveller staff voted Age UK as their chosen charity. Any funds they raise are matched pound for pound by the company’s Head Office.

Client feedback demonstrates how much they value the relationship with their expert travel consultant, as shown in a 95% plus average customer satisfactory survey. Meanwhile, staff feedback highlights how the Oxford team take pride in solving business travel challenges and always going that extra mile; like those who logged in over the weekend to help stranded travellers who have been affected by storms and Coronavirus.

Paul Longman, Team Manager, Corporate Traveller Oxford, commented on the milestone saying: “It’s incredible how technology has changed over the last decade and we now provide customers with online solutions to make booking business travel easier and travel apps to support them with duty of care and traveller safety. But at the heart of our business is service – and that hasn’t changed. Customers want the technology at their fingertips, but they also still want the one-to-one relationship with us as their expert travel consultants.”
