Noumea / NEW CALEDONIA
I have been working with Travel Professionals for almost 2 years in my new position. Travel Professionals consultants have a true knowledge of the Pacific area and their staff are very skilled travel agents.
As the Conference/Events/Travel Coordinator of an International organisation that employs more than 600 staff which brings assistance to all the Pacific Islands Countries (Health, Fisheries, Tropical Agronomy etc.…) I have to approve all travel undertaken by 400 hundred Professionals.
Those Professionals are constantly travelling to either attend conferences or (and mostly) organise conferences, workshops and meetings that will displace hundreds of people annually. Travel Professionals is our preferred travel provider because their consultants understand our needs, not only sourcing the most economic and shortest routes, but also being able to make constant changes to suit the needs of the countries.
Our Senior Leadership Team (SLT) swears by their services, in fact they even bypass me to deal directly with Travel Professionals as they are kind, reactive, often proactive people. Our Organization is known for being difficult to serve as we send our people to the remotest places in the Pacific Islands Countries. Travel Professionals staff have always been extremely patient with us, never said a word against any task we subject them to, they can start and start again, constantly, without a complaint. In one word: no business is too small or too difficult for them.
As our SLT remarked to me once: it’s not enough to have the best airfare, what Travel Professionals provide us is service and peace of mind.
Auckland / NEW ZEALAND
I would like to thank Travel Professionals for their outstanding travel consultancy services.
As an international corporation we live on travel. Our New Zealand office uses Travel Professionals as our one stop shop for everything travel. Our employees regularly request difficult itineraries at short notice and their team have consistently and repeatedly proven their worth. Flights, hotels, rental vehicles, travel consultancy. We have had the pleasure of working with Travel Professionals for over 10 years, during which period their consultants have prepared hundreds of itineraries with thousands of flights.
We are communications experts; Travel Professionals are travel experts. It is best to leave specialty services to the subject matter experts. If it were not for Travel Professionals Team, we would be spending much more time on travel overhead instead of focusing on generating revenue for our company. I highly recommend Travel Professionals, not only for their high level of professionalism, but also the decades of experience. Sometimes a smile is not enough, it needs solid backing, and when it comes to travel – Travel Professionals deliver.
Auckland /NEW ZEALAND
I have retained Travel Professionals since I founded my company in 2010 as my travel agent.
Travel Professionals have been exceptional to work with over the last 8 years and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a travel agent that goes the extra mile for every single one of their clients. No trip is too big or too small.
Travel Professionals team do more than just ticket flights. They think about the bigger picture, take the time to understand the pressure one is under during compact and intensive business trips and come up with the best solution for the client.
Their consultants are very practical and take the time to research your itinerary thoroughly. Many travel agents today don’t invest this time and many travel agents today do nothing more than clip the ticket. They poorly research options and aim to book your travel in the fastest time possible, rather than in a way that meets your business needs.
The Travel Professional Team add real value. They understand that being a travel agent is so much more than clipping a ticket. They provide a total service, thoroughly researched itineraries and support, as well as being responsive, attentive and proactive.
I am often surprised at the speed at which they get back to me, but there is nothing more important than that when you are halfway around the world.
The level of service I have received is second to none – through both opportunities and challenges, at all hours of the day across all times zones.
Honiara / SOLOMON ISLANDS
I have worked in the Solomon Islands for some ten years during which time I have had three different employers. In each position that I have held I had responsibility in part for organising travel for a large number of personnel.
During the entire period, each entity dealt with Travel Professionals for all corporate travel on behalf of employees / consultants in addition to the various recreational travel requirements on behalf of the staff. Additionally, we would require Travel Professionals to organise group travel bookings for the purposes of attending conferences etc. and it is with great pleasure that I advise despite various complications that we would put in front of Travel Professionals staff, each and every trip was completed smoothly.
A feature of our dealings with Travel Professionals is their ready accessibility and their ability to respond to various scenarios that arose regardless of the hour of the day or night. Their responsiveness to requests well outside of business hours and during weekends and Public Holidays were outstanding.
Travel Professionals consultant showed great tenacity in ensuring that on each occasion he issued tickets that the cheapest possible fare arrangements were applied. Their personal efforts ensured that value for money was always achieved for each passenger and this contributed greatly to reduced travel expenditure.
It is with pleasure and a great deal of confidence that I would recommend Travel Professionals to any organisation that requires an honest, enthusiastic and reliable travel agent. The Travel Professionals team have consistently demonstrated these qualities over quite an extended period.
