What is a CTM and why are they invaluable?

March 16, 2016

By Donna Meads-Barlow Travel (DMT)

What is a CTM?
Travel is an integral part of doing business in today’s globally connected marketplace. However, for companies and their employees, travel can be a risky thing.

It can encompass delayed flights, accommodation mix-ups and local language barriers, or worse - civil unrest, exposure to disease, natural disasters and technology failings. Companies without a professional Travel Management Company may find that they are insufficiently prepared for these types of risks.

When you book travel through a professional ATAS accredited Travel Management Company like DMT, you can operate in the confidence that your company’s travel arrangements and employees are in the hands of an expert travel planner.

Last year, we had a situation where the Australian Government issued a warning urging Australian’s travelling to Thailand to exercise a high degree of caution in the wake of violence in the capital, Bangkok. We had corporate clients staying in the high risk area of Bangkok.

As a professional travel agency with 24/7 emergency assistance we immediately contacted our clients and informed them of the danger. We then set out to execute our emergency evacuation procedures to ensure these clients returned home to Australia safely. It was important that we acted swiftly as hundreds of Thai riot police were reported clearing areas of Bangkok where anti-government protesters had set up camp.

DMT is a boutique Travel Management Company who specialises in fast, friendly business travel solutions for local, national and global firms; with emphasis on professional service, going the extra mile and reducing your spend through following simple business travel management practices.

Accredited through the industry accreditation scheme ATAS, DMT is a trusted, quality and reputable Travel Management Company committed to providing cost effective solutions for companies and peace of mind for travelling staff who know that they are in the safe hands of an industry professional, even when faced with Civil Unrest.
