Uniglobe Travel International LP has signed a global partner agreement with Arabian Global Tourism and Travel located in Dubai.
“Joining Uniglobe Travel as a Global Partner is an extension of our current association with them," said Murtaza ‘Monty’ Kanani, managing director of Arabian Global Tourism and Travel. "Our other agency, Uniglobe Fleet Travel, located in Nairobi, Kenya is a Uniglobe agency. We expect to continue to benefit from our association with Uniglobe Travel due to their global network. In addition to networking key accounts with other Uniglobe agencies to grow our business, we look forward to offering our in-bound services and programs to the agencies associated with the global network.”
“In today’s climate of globalization, being serious about the business of business travel makes an association with a worldwide name brand organization almost imperative,” said John Henry, senior vice president of global development for Uniglobe Travel International Limited Partnership. “Uniglobe Travel offers a network of more than 750 locations in more than 40 countries around the world, and with Arabian Global Tourism and Travel, I think we have a very good fit.”
The Uniglobe Global Partner program is open to top performing agencies in any country that is not presently covered by a master franchise and introduces Uniglobe Travel to new business markets. The program, which has been operational since late 2006, allows global partner agencies to enjoy the benefit of combining their own locally established and recognized brand with the international brand of Uniglobe Travel.
Some of the benefits global partner agencies enjoy include: networking for in-bound and out-bound business travel; access to leading edge technology; use of Uniglobe Travel Hotel program, which provides a comprehensive listing of approximately 14,000 hotels worldwide; and use of Uniglobe branded programs and materials.
Other advantages include access to Uniglobe Travel Product Exchange program, which gives Global Partners the ability to promote, share and sell their travel products, block space, event tickets and packages to other Uniglobe Travel agencies; participation in training programs designed to build sales, marketing, financial management and customer service; attending the International Management Academy, which is held regularly in Vancouver by Uniglobe Travel International and other international events and collaboration of multi-location corporate accounts.
