Three things you might not know about marine and offshore travel

by Traveleads | September 4, 2020 | Latest News

With bases in Aberdeen down to Southampton, there’s a few things we know about the world of marine and offshore travel.

From site maintenance through to complicated and lengthy installations, we understand that your business can take place at any time of day. If you’ve ever wondered how you might benefit from partnering with a travel management company, here are just three of the ways we can support your travel needs.

Marine and offshore fares

Did you know we have access to exclusive marine and offshore fares, meaning we can negotiate the very best deals for you? Through our supplier relationships and partner networks, we can ensure that your rates aren’t affected, whether you need to change plans or travel with excess baggage.

While your work has to take weather conditions into account, with access to these fares, you can have peace of mind that you won’t be subject to unreasonable costs for cancellations or changes – plus, you won’t even have to worry about re-booking, our consultants can take care of it for you.

Out of hours support

We appreciate that your business hours don’t run between the standard 9am – 5pm, so neither does ours. Our out of hours emergency assistance team is always on hand to help your travellers get to where they need to be, whether it’s a last-minute booking or support in finding the best route home.

Plus, our traveller tracking technology means you’ll know where they are (or where they’re next planning to be) should you need to get in touch in an emergency situation.

Now, more than ever, there are constant changes to flight and rail schedules due to ongoing travel restrictions. Our team has been working hard throughout lockdown and beyond in ensuring our travel partners who fall into the ‘essential travel’ category have been able to carry on, business as usual.

Hand over the complexities

Understanding and managing the complexities of travel is our job, not yours. We thrive in making your lives easier, so rather than providing you with overly complicated software or technology, you can simply pick up the phone or send an email, tell us your plans, and we’ll take care of the rest.

Whether it’s managing complex visa requirements, advising on the best routes or utilising our relationships with airlines to ensure you have a smooth, uncomplicated journey (no matter how far you’re travelling or how much equipment you’re transporting), our team of expert consultants have got it covered.

Plus, for those simpler bookings where your travellers are returning to an often-visited hotel or hopping on their usual train to make a weekly meeting, our online self-booking tool is quick and easy to use, helping your team get to where they need to be, faster.

Do you have a burning question for our marine and offshore travel experts? Contact our team here, we’d love to chat with you.
