Come and meet Global Travel Management at ‘Woking Means Business’

Staff from Global Travel Management will taking part in the Woking Means Business exhibition this week.

The annual event takes place on Wednesday, 12 October at the Woking Leisure Centre and is the longest-running business show in Surrey. Businesses from all over Woking and surrounding areas will be in attendance and visitors will include Council leaders, businesses, charities and many others.

Scott Pawley, Managing Director of Global Travel Management explained

We’re come through a couple of years of Covid-related travel restrictions. But now is the right time to start to meet businesses face-to-face again. And where better than the town in which Global Travel Management is based – Woking?

Global Travel Management will be showcasing its product offering, including the ground-breaking Carbon Offset programme.

Paul Baker explained how the Carbon Offset Programme works

When our customers take a business trip, we always make sure they have the best possible experience and have access to the best available fares, types and classes of travel and accommodation. But we’re now also able to help them protect the environment.

After each trip, we can show them the amount of greenhouse gas their journey created. And we can detail how many trees it would take to offset those emissions.

For a small fee, we can then arrange to have those trees selected, purchased, planted and cared-for, thanks to our ground-breaking partnership with Trees4Travel, the carbon offset experts.

Scott Pawley explained further

We like to do things best and first at Global Travel Management. And our Carbon Offset Programme is a great example of this. Many of our customers like the simplicity of the service and appreciate being able to report to their colleagues, suppliers, customers and shareholders about the positive environmental impact they’re making through the Carbon Offset Programme.

But I am also very proud that Global Travel Management was the very first travel management company to make this service available to UK businesses. And I am also very pleased to see how much Trees4Travel has grown – both figuratively and literally!

You can meet representatives from Trees4Travel at Woking Means Business on Global Travel Management’s stands 48 and 56.

But that’s not all. As well as introducing businesses to the benefits of offsetting greenhouse gas emissions, Global Travel Management is giving away ‘air miles’.

Thanks to the long-standing relationship with British Airways, Global Travel Management is giving away 25,000 Avios.

Scott Pawley explained

Our friends at British Airways have kindly offered a “prize” to give away, to help Global Travel Management celebrate our twenty-fifth anniversary.

We’ll be asking attendees at Woking Means Business to sign up to our weekly, free email, which gives advice and news about business travel. And, by doing so, they will be “in the draw” to win 25,000 Avios.

Avios is the “currency” used by British Airways to reward its frequent flyers. Passengers can use Avios to book Reward Flights, upgrade to a higher class on flights, use as part-payment for flights or pay with Avios for seats or baggage.

You can sign up to the weekly, free email newsletter and have a chance to win 25,000 Avios on Global Travel Management’s stands 48 and 56.

Woking Means Business is free to attend. And there is up to three hours free parking available at the event.
