GTM launches third beer

Global Travel Management has produced its third in a series of limited edition, specially-crafted beers, celebrating aspects of business travel.

Route Beer is the latest ale created by independent brewery Thurstons Brewery, based in the village of Horsell, close to Global Travel Management’s headquarters in Woking, Surrey.

ROUTE BEER is Global Travel Management’s third celebratory beer, brewed by Thurstons Brewery

Route Beer has been brewed to celebrate Global Travel Management’s long-term partnership with travel commerce platform Travelport. And it commemorates the best-known road in the United States: Route 66 or “the Mother Road”, which stretches 2,448 miles from Chicago to Santa Monica.

In 2017, Global Travel Management celebrated its twentieth anniversary with its first commissioned beer, The Globe Trotter. And in 2018, the company produced Fliegerbier, in partnership with Lufthansa.

Route Beer marks completes the hat-trick of beers brewed specifically for Global Travel Management by the award-winning Thurstons Brewery and, like its predecessors is a bottle-conditioned beer, matured by secondary fermentation.

GTM deploys new, cloud-based telephony system

Global Travel Management has invested in a new, cutting-edge telephone system to enable industry-leading levels of customer service to be delivered from any location.

As part of Global Travel Management’s on-going investment in customer service, we have commissioned and installed a cloud-based telephony system, ensuring that our customers can reach any of our travel consultants, account managers and other staff, easily and quickly. 

The system, produced by British company Daisy, links our Woking headquarters office, our Watford office and remote locations.  This means that we are able to route and connect calls to the right contact, quickly and easily.  And it means that whenever customers call us, we can offer the highest levels of customer service, immediately, on-demand.

So, if you are calling to make changes to an itinerary, update information about your traveller profile or need immediate assistance due to changes in travel plans en route, we can make sure you speak to the right person to help you out, straight away.

Scott Pawley, our managing director said:

We aim to ensure we continue to provide our customers with the best-possible service.  By investing in an industry-leading telephone service, we can ensure that we are able to assist customers with every aspect of their business travel, in the shortest-possible time.

We will continue to make customer-focused investments so that we are able to live up to – and exceed – our reputation for unequalled customer service.

The new telephone system forms part of the 24 x 7 customer service Global Travel Management provides.  If you need information about any travel booked with Global Travel Management, or need to change, cancel, amend or postpone travel arrangements, you can contact us 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
