  • The Value of a Personal Travel Manager (PTM)

    Travel starts long before you leave home. Whether it’s for a holiday with loved ones, a bucket list adventure or your next business trip, researching and booking all your arrangements can be time consuming and overwhelming. Leave that to your personal travel manager (or PTM for short).

    They’ll help you prepare for your trip

    There is a lot to consider before you leave home. Our PTMs can use their professional knowledge and resources to help you prepare for your upcoming trip. Whether it be assisting you with your vaccination requirements, visas and permits or travel insurance requirements, they can help you make those important decisions.

    They know travel

    With their extensive knowledge and experience from their own travels, as well as a successful career in the travel industry, PTMs can offer you expert travel advice. They’re passionate about travel. There is so much more to see and do than what you find in a brochure or from an online search, which they love to share with their clients. You can leave the research and logistics to your PTM and be confident you will be heading off on your travels with an itinerary that is tailored to your individual needs and budget, and packed with ‘insider information’, so you won’t miss a thing.

    Value for money

    Being part of the TravelManagers Australia network and having strong relationships with reputable airlines, hotels, cruise companies, wholesalers and tour operators means that PTMs have access to and can offer you competitive rates, and exclusive deals. And with so many offers available, they’ll save you time and money by comparing all deals and matching those that are right for your trip.

    You can book with confidence knowing your travel savings are secure

    When you book with a PTM, you can relax knowing your hard-earned cash is safe. TravelManagers places all customer money in a dedicated client trust account until they are passed on to the supplier. Keeping your funds separate from the general business accounts ensures they are secure and only used for what they were intended. Our dedicated client account is audited by an external and independent chartered accounting firm on a quarterly basis and these audit reports are available on our website. TravelManagers also has its own additional trust account fidelity risk insurance. This insurance protects your funds in the unlikely event that they are missing from, or not paid into the insured trust account.

    Your PTM’s service doesn’t end when you leave home

    No two trips are the same. If something unexpected happens while you’re away, whether it’s missed flights, cancelled flights, a medical situation or emergency, your PTM is on hand to support you and help get you back on track. They have the skills, experience and relationships with our supplier partners to help resolve any issues that may arise.
