Thinking Globally, Functioning Locally

Thinking Globally, Functioning Locally ( Thinking Globally, Functioning Locally

In today’s climate of globalization in the corporate world as well as the travel industry, an agency that is serious about the business of business travel and is not a member of a brand name international network organization is at a serious competitive disadvantage. Globalization is here to stay and as it increases and technology continues to evolve, that disadvantage will only intensify.

UNIGLOBE Travel is the leading global network of Business Travel Agencies specializing in the SME market segment. As a solution to the globalization challenge, last year, UNIGLOBE launched its Global Partner Program where a limited number of established TMC’s/ Business Travel agencies in certain countries in which UNIGLOBE did not have a presence could have the benefit of an international affiliation through a direct relationship with UNIGLOBE World Headquarters, in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Since then, in addition to the 30 plus counties where UNIGLOBE does have a presence, agencies have taken up the Global Partner opportunity in Dubai, France, Malaysia, the Philippines, Peru and Venezuela.

In October of this year, Fortune Travel of Singapore became the newest member of the UNIGLOBE family, and a Master License Agreement was entered into for the UNIGLOBE rights to Mexico and Central America with Aversa, the Hertz franchisee in Mexico.

Global Partners enjoy the use of the International Brand in conjunction with their own identity, access to leading edge travel management technology, networking and collaboration on business opportunities and multi-location corporate accounts. They also get access to training and the benefits of buying power, as well as shared expertise from around the world.

While UNIGLOBE Senior Management say that the Global Partner-type of relationship is where they see their growth in the future they are also open to discuss interest in Master Franchise opportunities but only for certain sizeable markets.
