In 1993, DBT joined the consortium, buying group
United Travel Agent's Group (UTAG) as share holding
franchisee which has since been redeveloped and has positioned itself centre stage in the industry - HELLOWORLD For Business.
HELLOWORLD For Business (a Corporate TMC/agency group) has been developed within
the consortium as a separate entity headed up by
it's own Director representing our agencies to the Board,
ensuring that our interests, moreover yours, are best
met in a competitive Corporate Traveller's environment
with travel related Principals.
In a nut shell, we explore a purchasing power based
on an group of agencies of over 400 members as opposed
to remaining isolated, however quite and completely
independent with the DBT identity.
HELLOWORLD is now the largest independent travel membership group in Australia, partnering thousands of affiliated industry networks across the world.
Other affiliations: before choosing or changing TMC's,
be sure their credentials are up to scratch. It's
for your protection & peace of mind.
Along with being an accredited Travel Agent, your TMC
should be a member of at least:
IATA - International Air Travel
Association. Agency accredited to issue Air Travel
tickets from within licenced premises, in accordance
to rules set out by IATA.
