Specialists in academic travel

Managing the travel accounts of many renowned universities for over ten years has given us invaluable experience and insight into the very specific needs of the academic sector.

We know time is at a premium for most academics and that university travel budgets are tight. So our clearly defined service provides a comprehensive range of pricing structures to meet a wide variety of academic travel needs. For example we offer specialist air fares, designed specifically to meet university travel needs, together with all other fare types.
