PERSONAL SERVICE

Unquestionable and award-winning quality

After more than five decades as one of the UK’s leading independent TMCs, we’ve built an enviable reputation of which we are fiercely proud. Put simply, we deliver a better business travel experience, 24/7.

Our innovative ‘follow the sun’ delivery model means we provide a truly ALWAYS ON service, caring for our clients around the clock – when they need us, where they need us.

For us, ‘out of hours’ simply isn’t a thing. In any working day, our UK offices hand over to our USA offices, who in turn pass the baton to our Australia offices. This ensures our clients are always looked after by Gray Dawes staff who share a single technology solution and a single brand promise – to do things better.

Confidence is Key

We take the time to really understand your needs. From our pool of incredible travel consultants, we then build a dedicated team around you, selecting those with experience in your industry and a personality fit with your culture. That way, you can be confident that the service you get isn’t just tailored to exceed your expectations, it’s guaranteed to make you smile.

Content is King

With the most flight, hotel, rail and car hire options out there, you’ll be spoilt for choice. That’s why we adopt a retailing approach to booking business travel. Agents and clients are able to see web and NDC content and then compare rates side by side with GDS results. But it’s not about quantity over quality, which is why our solutions are completely agile to your needs.

WE TRAVEL WITH YOU

Before, during and after every trip, we’re your constant travel companion.

Your dedicated Account Manager will uncover what value means to your business and create an Extra Mile Programme specifically to underpin how we’ll enhance your travel programme and your business against targeted KPIs.

Of course, we can talk to you about products and services. But that’s what every TMC can (and will) give you. What you’ll also get from Gray Dawes is status and affiliation with the best TMC in the business. You’ll enjoy being part of a wider community and benefit from the partnership we build.

Thoughtful Onboarding

Our implementation process is comprehensively thorough. We leave no stone unturned to ensure your travel bookers, managers and, travellers feel at ease with our systems and delighted with their travel experience.

Insightful Consulting

Gray Dawes Consulting can help you save up to 22% on your programme. We’ll assist you in spotting trends, analysing data and drilling down into the important details of your corporate travel programme.

Analytical Reporting

You’ll have a huge range of bespoke information dashboards at your fingertips. But what brings the bar charts to life is our ability to interpret them to drive enhancements across value, safety, sustainability and service.
