Your Personal Travel Concierge Service – Your Wish is Our Command!
At itsthewaytotravel.com we make it our business to help yours, by being at your service whenever you need us – it’s the ultimate travel concierge service.
Our service is designed around your individual business travel needs, so you choose how to contact us, how we respond, the level of service you want and how proactive you want us to be.
We’ll ask you for all your preferences – your particular likes and dislikes, your budget parameters, or your company’s policy requirements – so we’ll build up a profile of you to guide us to give you the best solution each time you contact us.
So if you prefer to travel Business Class, or if you’d prefer to travel by train wherever possible, or if you need to have a hotel with its own business centre, you only have to tell us once, and we’ll make sure that any itineraries take account of your every wish.
And through our long-established relationships with local ground agents, tour operators, airlines and hotel groups, we can often save you money, get upgrades or provide added-value benefits that others simply couldn’t match.
“Really appreciated your help today. Could NOT have sorted this out without you! I’m going to email all my colleagues about your service right now! Thanks again.”
Car Rental Services – Putting You in the Driving Seat!
We know there’s nothing worse than arriving at your destination to find that the local car hire company has no record of your reservation, so we leave nothing to chance.
Every booking is confirmed and reconfirmed to make sure that your car will be waiting for you, exactly as you expect.
And the itsthewaytotravel.com self-drive service also looks after all the other extras that make it seamless, enjoyable experience and get you to your hotel or meeting feeling relaxed and composed, including
- Maps and directions, satellite navigation and route planning
- Car insurance and collision waiver cover where appropriate
- Guidance on road signs, and driving etiquette
- Guidance on fuel filling
- Help and advice on short-term and longer-term parking
- What to do in the event of an accident
- Full details of drop-off procedures
And if you’ve never driven on the ‘wrong’ side of the road before, we’ll even put you in touch with an experienced, specialist instructor who can give you a quick course to ensure that you set off confidently and competently.
So wherever you want to drive, we’ll help to get you there, and with generous discounts on car hire, parking and insurance, we can save you money along the way.
“Just wanted to pass on my thanks for sorting out the car hire for our recent trip. In the past, we’ve encountered so many problems with rental vehicles, so it was a huge relief to have it waiting for us at the airport, exactly as specified (actually it was an upgrade at no extra cost – thank you!). The vehicle was spotless, and full of fuel. We’ll be in touch shortly to arrange our next visit.”
Want to Charter a Private Jet or Helicopter? Don’t Wing It – Use Our Experts
For many senior business people, chartering your own private jet is an increasingly popular way of getting around quickly and cost-effectively, and can allow you to get to airports not served by the commercial airlines, but there are pitfalls that can make it expensive if you don’t know what to look for.
Fortunately, the team of itsthewaytotravel.com corporate travel specialists have a wealth of experience in private jet hire, and will look after every aspect of the process, to ensure that you avoid any problems and have a happy landing.
From a 4-seater Lear Jet to a 150-seater Airbus A319, our service includes:
- Charter options
- Route planning and scheduling
- Catering and other in-flight services
- Guidance on baggage and other cargo allowances
- Checklist for departures and arrivals, including airport terminal access
“The jet we hired to take our team to the conference in Glasgow proved to be excellent value. When we calculated the time it saved us collectively, it made us wonder why we hadn’t thought of doing this before. We can’t thank you and your team enough for all the help and advice you gave us- it made it a stress-free and very worthwhile (and enjoyable!) experience, which we have already re-booked for next year. Thank you again.”
