Amity Bear meets Bizzy Bear

Amity Travel Management, the leading business travel agency in the Solent area, is rebranding as Business Travel Direct from Monday October 3rd,.

Amity Travel, founded in 1971, was acquired by the Ickenham Travel Group (ITG) last November and the change in name aligns the Amity Travel Management operation in Segensworth with ITG’s own award-winning corporate travel brand, Business Travel Direct, which has offices in Uxbridge, Oxford and Central London.

Amity Travel Director, Adrian Williams, says: “ The world of corporate travel management is rapidly moving into a new era driven by mobile technology – enabling employees to book their own business travel on the fly, and off the radar.

In light of these changes organisations face new challenges such as fulfilling their duty of care obligations, traveller tracking, travel policy management and acquisition of meaningful data they can use to manage their travellers and budgets.

Business Travel Direct is at the forefront of this transition from that of a traditional Travel Management Company into being a true Travel Solutions Partner – not least with their ongoing launch into the European travel market of two powerful new hotel rate and airfare price monitoring tools.

Since our acquisition by ITG last year we have been working hard to harmonise both our technology platforms while continuing to provide a seamless experience for our clients.

Having completed this project it makes perfect sense to align our branding and make these impressively innovative solutions available all our customers.

“Other than changing the name over the door, it’s very much business as usual for Amity Travel Management corporate clients; with the same great team of people continuing to deliver the best possible travel management service from our offices at Manor Court.”
