TravelAdvocates launches with Southcombe at helm

New broker channel brand named TravelAdvocates has been officially launched in New Zealand.

Headed up by Mike Southcombe, who has a long history in this space having previously established a successful broker business. Southcombe had 11 years at the helm of Travel Managers Group NZ.

‘TravelAdvocates is an exciting new player in the travel broker / personal travel manager sector, offering a fresh perspective.  

‘I’m looking forward to building something riveting and new with the backing from HOT Holdings and having access to a great range of tools and collateral that will position TravelAdvocates firmly in the premium personal travel manager space,’ says Southcombe.

He adds that his focus will be on building strong partnerships with PTMS (personal travel manager sector) and assist with helping them grow.

‘Watch this space for a fresh new brand that brings a great array of business tools, robust systems and processes plus a strong emphasis on support.  

‘TravelAdvocates will operate independently as a standalone brand, delivering the choice the sector demands with the likes of GDS and supplier options,’ says Southcombe.
