Global Marine Travel recognized on top travel list

ADVERTISEMENT

Maritime travel service Global Marine Travel has been named in Travel Weekly’s 2019 Power List. The travel industry trade publication’s annual list recognizes the top 54 travel agencies in the U.S. with $100 million or more in travel sales.

GMT, which is ranked No. 47 on the list, was acquired by V.Group in February. The company provides travel service to more than 300,000 maritime personnel around the world each year, according to a recent press release.

”This success is a clear sign that the merger and introduction of GMT into V.Group is gaining real traction,” stated GMT Managing Director Tim Davey, who also noted that this is the first time the company has made it onto the Power List. “The success has already attracted new clients to use our services.” 

GMT offers yacht crew specialized air/sea fares through a number of travel platforms and booking programs, as well as 24/7 customer service and advice on travel issues such as visa requirements. For more information, visit flygmt.com.
