CT Partners teams up with JC Travel Professionals

Australia’s largest independent travel group has snagged itself a new member, and we’ve got all the deets right here.

For the uninformed, CT Partners is the network of choice for larger travel agencies – and they has just signed JC Travel Professionals as a member of their corporate travel buying group.

Award winning travel management company, JC Travel Professionals, brings CT Partners membership to 22 Aussie travel companies – totalling a collective transaction value of over $1.5 billion. That’s a pretty big group.

So big, that, from an individual buying group or franchise perspective, it’s transactional value is only beaten by Flight Centre and Helloworld.

Obviously, both company heads were thrilled at the new partnership.

“We welcome JC Travel Professionals and look forward to helping them grow and increase their profitability,” Grant Wilson, Chairman of CT Partners, said.

“The great thing with CT Partners is that every new member sees an immediate increase in their income together with the benefit of a supportive and high-performance peer group.

“Every dollar that comes from Suppliers goes to the direct benefit of members – it’s a compelling proposition for members and Suppliers,” he added.

Freddy Mikhael, Managing Director of JC Travel Professionals, also said there were a ton of benefits for CT Partners members, themselves included.

“We are delighted to be part of CT Partners as we found their value proposition with its small, tightly run Head Office, timely and accurate reporting and prompt distribution of Supplier income outstanding.

“Furthermore, the opportunity to work together with other like-minded members for a common benefit has real appeal to us,” he said.

CT Partners was established in early 2004 and offer unrivalled transparency in relation to their financial activities – and this partnership has strengthened their position in the travel sector.
