Vancouver, Canada – UNIGLOBE Travel International is pleased to announce that B. D. Graiver Tourism Services Ltd of Haifa, Israel, and Egytrav of Cairo have joined the UNIGLOBE family as the newest Global Partner agencies, thereby strengthening its growing presence in the Middle East/Gulf area.
Through the Global Partner Program (GPP), UNIGLOBE International forms a direct relationship with TMCs in those parts of the world not covered by a Regional Master franchise. UNIGLOBE provides the TMC with access to the global brand, products, systems, technology and proven international expertise to enable them to compete with other multi-national agencies and groups that are increasingly dominating the business travel market. These features together with the global network and support allow the TMC to collaborate on larger national, regional and international accounts not previously accessible to them.
The GPP functions as an integral part of the organization alongside the Regional operations and since the inception of the program in late 2006, Global Partners have joined the UNIGLOBE family in France, Poland, Malaysia, Singapore, The Philippines, Thailand, Pakistan, Dubai, Jordan, Iraq, Morocco, Peru and Venezuela.
