Over the past two years the travel management firm, which specialises in UK and international air travel, accommodation, and rail travel for the academic sector, has added some of the UK’s leading institutions to its portfolio which already features more than 100 academic institutions nationwide.
The recent wins total more than £8million in value and include the London School of Economics, the Victoria & Albert Museum and, most recently, the Universities of Bradford and Hull.
Last year, the firm also won a place on the UK-wide purchasing consortia framework for travel which allows all member universities access to Diversity Travel’s services.
Christopher Airey, managing director of Diversity Travel, said: “Our work with university clients is not limited to providing access to exclusive academic fares; we work with them at all levels to remove cost and complexities from their travel programme, whether this is through the use of bespoke self-booking tools or by helping to structure internal purchase to pay processes.
“The growth we have seen in the academic sector is a testament to the dedication of our award-winning team who understand the intricate nature of our clients’ requirements. The majority of our team have worked with us for a number of years and have an unrivalled knowledge of the challenges our clients in the academic, charity and not-for-profit sectors face.”
Diversity Travel, who celebrates its 10 year anniversary next year, specialises in travel management services to clients in the charity, academic and not-for-profit sectors. Earlier this year the company reported an increase in sales of over 60 per cent over the past three years through a strengthened workforce and increased presence in Central London and Melbourne to enhance the service to its global customers.
Christopher continues: “We recognise the important work being done by the charities and academic institutions we work with and we are proud to be a part of it.”
