We achieve this because of the depths we go to in understanding our clients, their culture, their brand values and business objectives. Our client-driven strategy is fundamental in helping us craft solutions which truly exceed the needs of today’s business traveller, delivering an experience which consistently delights our customers.

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.
