Hi,

Our company spends a lot on traveling for business and personal
requirements for our staff and we were looking for ways of finding
very good "deals" through an online service which is easy to deal with
and is worth the money.

We've got a great travel agent at the moment, but they're not doing
well on the deals side and we're shopping for a service or a provider
who would advise us and perhaps arrange things to counter where our
agent shows lack of resourcefulness.

We travel mostly around Europe, the middle east and the far east.  The
US is not currently in our list of regions for business or pleasure.

We also tend to extend business trips by taking our families with us
to optimize travel costs and add value for our staff at the same time.

Thank you.

Mao,
the answer may depend on your location. there are many good agencies
and no frills airlines that provide great service. i was a travel
agent for 21 years and now find that ryanair, easyjet,can provide most
solutions in europe. for further afield try sta travel (specialize for
students,although anyone can use them) and trailfinders(specialize for
anybody travelling beyond europe).outside europe try gold medal travel
based in the north of england.a friend who still works in an agency is
anita ,based in leicestershire uk ,01162 340188.
hope this is useful
