A Direct Travel agent can help you by provide research or in many cases, first-hand experience of the benefits or limitations of various locations.

Air & Hotel Savings
Keeping costs within your budget is what our travel professionals will help you do. Our network of preferred suppliers allows us to negotiate competitive rates for air, hotel, and car services.

By negotiating Percentage Meeting, Group Block, Zone and Customized Fares our clients have realized savings up to 70% off published air rates. Our professionals assist companies in securing rates otherwise unavailable to them and complimentary tickets when appropriate.

Direct Travel has developed ongoing relationships with numerous individual properties and hotel chains. We negotiate hotel contracts on a daily basis. As a result, our staff knows which costs are negotiable, the latest perks in hotel agreements, and how too plan a meeting to get the most for the least.

Time is Money
Even a simple, three-day meeting typically takes 55 hours of your staff’s valuable time. If a dollar value were placed on the time devoted to meeting details, many companies would realize that lost productivity is costing thousands of dollars.
