Pre-Trip Services

Pre-Trip

From the off we will be working hard to make each trip work perfectly for you. We will know and understand your travel preferences and will advise if the traveller’s passport needs renewing or if their visa is about to expire. In this day and age online check-in is a given but we will ensure that all your preferences are adhered to down to booking a particular seat on the plane.

Ancillary

Worry not, your Destinations Account Manager will work tirelessly to ensure you have everything you need for a safe and successful trip, with a comprehensive check of passport validity, visas and travel documents just for starters. We store all this information in your traveller profiles along with any dietary requirements, allergies or specific details that should be known to make your trip run smoothly.

If required we can help with any currency or money exchange transfers, additional or unusual luggage request or any specialist requirements. All this ensures that on arrival you are ready for business.

Safety

The safety and security of your travellers is extremely important in today’s travel environment in fact it is a legal requirement since the introduction of the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act, effective travel policy and traveller tracking are essential elements of any corporate travel management. Sabre Traveller Security is available for all our corporate clients to instantly pinpoint travellers’ locations and contact info during Sabre-booked trips. This also gives you a range of benefits including identifying those who have plans to travel to volatile or disrupted areas in the future, and make necessary last-minute itinerary changes. Receive alerts when key personnel are all booked on the same flight.

More than just peace of mind: Use it to generate reports on corporate travel trends, and provide data when negotiating preferred rates.

CLIENTS FEEDBACK

  • Attention to detail is what Destinations excels at: from knowing my first choice seat on different airlines, to my preferred hotel in each destination. No matter how busy I am, I can relax knowing that Destinations have taken care of everything. Destinations is by far the most efficient, consistent and pleasant travel agency I have ever worked with.

  • I have worked with Destinations for the past 14 years. I'm responsible for organising complicated, multi-sector itineraries for the Group Chief Executive and directors. Destinations have provided cost-effective solutions for travel requirements. They are familiar with each traveller's preferences and automatically take these into account without the need for prompting, effectively acting as our partner.
