Marine travel specialists ISSGMT will host Triton networking on the third Wednesday in May.
All yacht captains, crew and industry professionals are welcome to join on May 18 at ISSGMT’s offices off 17th Street in Ft. Lauderdale from 6-8 p.m.
Until then, learn more about from the yacht division team, Sales Manager Laurence Carlier and Sales Coordinator Shawn O’Brien.

Q. Tell us about ISSGMT
ISSGMT is a full service travel agency catering exclusively to the yachting industry and offering 24/7/365 customer service. Due to the nature of the industry, it is not unusual for our clients to arrange last minute travel and with the 24/7 team in place, ISSGMT is able to respond quickly.
All our calls and emails are handled by in-house agents based in the USA, Europe and Canada.
ISSGMT offers negotiated discounted marine airfares worldwide which are designed to provide cost effective travel solutions to our yachting clientele.
In addition to our contract airfares, we are also able to access regular published airfares including low cost carriers so we can always present multiple options to our clients. As a full service travel agency we can also help with car and hotel reservations worldwide.

Q. What, exactly, is a marine airfare?
A marine airfare is a negotiated one-way refundable and changeable airfare which means that your flight reservation can be amended/cancelled at minimal or no fee. It also usually includes one extra bag free of charge which is a bonus as most airlines now charge a fee to check in a second bag. It is very convenient, in particular for captains who need to fly in crew, and additionally you can make a courtesy reservation without having to purchase the ticket immediately. We all know plans change quickly in the industry and we are able to change the crew flights accordingly at minimal cost.

Q. Who can use your services?
Captains and crew will use us primarily, however airlines are now extending these discounted airfares to a wider range of travelers involved in the yachting industry. Today we work with management companies’ personnel such yacht brokers and managers as well as contractors and technicians needing to fly to service the vessel (usually last minute). When plans are changing on the vessel, it does not only affect the crew, but all the companies supporting that vessel.
Our 24/7/365 availability is a real plus when travelers need to act quickly.

Q. What’s the best way to connect with ISSGMT?
“We’re Always Open” so you can email 24/7 to info@flyissgmt.com or call anytime +1 (954) 761-9595. There is always a team of agents ready to assist. In addition you can jump on our website at www.flyissgmt.com and use our instant messenger to communicate with our team.

Q. Is ISSGMT in the Mediterranean?
We sure are. The office is located in Palma Mallorca, Spain – in the heart of STP Boatyard. Crew love stopping by the office in the global building for a coffee, and to meet Gemma and Monica, our two representatives over there.

Q. Anything new and exciting coming up ?
We are starting a new air charter division to assist captains and charter brokers with private jet requests for yacht owners and charter guests. It’s an exciting addition to our other services, which now allows us to become a complete travel management solution partner.

ISS GMT is hosting Triton networking in the parking lot on May 18. No RSVPs are required; just bring business cards to network and meet new people. ISSGMT is located at 1800 SE 10th Ave., Suite 220, Ft. Lauderdale (33316). Contact at Shawn.OBrien@flyissgmt.com, +1 954-761-9595.
