Australia’s premium, independent travel buying group, CT Partners, has welcomed two high-profile NSW agencies to its stable this month, bringing the total of new additions to six since the beginning of the year.
The newest members are Frontier Travel, a corporate and premium leisure agency based in North Sydney and Landmark Travel, a long-established premium leisure and cruise specialist based in Manly.
“What attracted me to join CT Partners was their transparency, flexible offering and the ability to have direct and enhanced relationships with key suppliers,” said Roland Howlett, Director of Frontier said. “It was an easy decision in the end and the perfect solution for our business.”
Landmark Travel’s Gerd Wilmer said: “I look forward to again being able to determine my own destiny with a group of like-minded agents.”
Speaking about the recent growth in membership applications, CT Partners Chairman Barry Mayo remarked “we’re seeing unprecedented interest in membership of CT Partners, motivated by the uniqueness of our business model, with 100% of supplier payments passed directly on to Members, and a high level of collaboration between Members. We are delighted to welcome Frontier Travel and Landmark Travel to the group”.
Both agencies had previously been associated with the Magellan Travel Group.
In July, CT Partners welcomed Victoria-based members, where2travel and Benalla Travel. Earlier in the year TRIBE Travel in Melbourne and TMC, In Travel Group, also joined the network.
Established in 2004, CT Partners comprises 25 of the largest independent travel companies specialising in Corporate and premium leisure travel delivering the most competitive supplier deals available with a combined turnover of more than $ 1 billion.
