Job Detail

The Advantage Travel Partnership is the UK’s largest independent travel agent group.

The leisure and business travel member partners who are part of the group are each independently owned. As a collective they produce over £3bn of travel sales each year. This makes us experts in every aspect of the travel industry.

We are extremely proud of our member partners and although their skills and travel knowledge are as different as the individuals themselves, they all share a passion for travel and a desire to tailor their travel services to the individual needs of their customers.

We work closely with our member partners to provide them with the tools to offer their customers the most inspirational, yet affordable, range of travel product – and all with the full financial protection you would expect of an organisation of our size.

We work shoulder-to-shoulder with our business partners, sharing our collective knowledge to deliver exceptional travel services.
