Who we are
The International Marine Travel Group was founded in 1999 as an alliance of globally located marine and offshore specialists. Our core focus has always been on managing the travel requirements of multinational corporate clients on a global basis while fulfilling individual travel needs at a local level.
Global Solutions, Locally Managed
We have offices in countries and locations that are crucial to the multinational shipping and offshore industry. Our partners have been selected for their level of experience in our particular niche of the travel industry. All are leading companies in their markets, and have respected reputations. They understand the local culture, language, business, technology, and supplier relationships. Of course, they also have an in-depth knowledge of the local crewing industry. In some respects, these partners are as different as their markets are. At the same time, this enables us to step away from standard solutions and provide global solutions and local customisation.
