Alongside our comprehensive meetings service, HRG provides a group travel capability to ensure you have access to the best available arrangements. Our group travel and group air desks are staffed by specialists in travel logistics who have the product knowledge of, and the relationships with, group travel departments across all major airlines and travel suppliers.
There are many benefits to accessing our group travel services including savings of up to 50% and consolidated information on your group travel spend. The team will help facilitate successful trips by holding group fares, providing group check-in, arranging seat allocation and re-selling cancelled space to other clients, thereby reducing airline charges.
Our service will actively negotiate on your behalf and present a range of options connected with your meeting or event. We can include in these offers additional services for ground transportation, transfers and other local arrangements. Our group travel specialists can collaborate with meetings organisers to ensure that all travel arrangements are fully integrated with the timetable and event agenda.
Our group travel services include the coordination of individual travel to events and the ability to combine group air bookings across multiple client locations and countries to take advantage of group fares. We conduct comparisons to corporate client preferred air programmes and ensure that best fares are always used.
Client procurement teams benefit from our combined management of all corporate and group travel by gaining a consolidated view of all expenditure with major preferred airline partners. Clients equally benefit from the reporting advantage of having all travel managed through a single source – especially for security tracking and location of all company travellers. Further benefits of re-selling cancelled space can also be possible where space can be offered for standard corporate travel within the client company – or even across other clients.
