Marine Travel Direct
Managing the movement of crew and offshore personnel around the world is a highly specialised service, and that’s why we are the perfect partner for you. We have an experienced marine division located in Central London who know just how important it is to get crew where they’re needed on time, safely and on budget.
Marine Travel Direct has worked tirelessly to develop outstanding relationships within the industry and we now have over 200,000 hotels supporting our wider hotel programme alongside access to marine airfares with every major airline in the world – meaning that we can deliver the best travel options at the very best prices without having to use any third parties to do so. We ensure that our marine clients have at their disposal a database of special rates dedicated to those working in the Oil, Gas and Maritime industry. These fares offer substantial savings against normal tariffs, greater baggage allowance, priority treatment, and tend to come with fewer restrictions and penalties. Marine Travel Direct has also obtained specially-negotiated rates with airlines that do not offer marine fares, passing the savings achieved directly back to our customers.
