Whatever’s going on at Helloworld head office, clearly they’re offering the goods as the groups prize agencies keep on coming back for more.

The travel business says its had a “highly impressive” re-sign rate this year from its network Members whose contracts are scheduled to expire in November and December this year.

Perhaps as a result of CEO and Managing Director Andrew Burnes’ rally cry at the Groups Annual Owner Manager Conference in Singapore in October?

Among those sticking with Helloworld for Business (HWFB) are Reho Travel, The Travel Authority, Goldman Travel Group, Travel Brokers, Bayview Travel, Complete Business Travel, Sanford International Travel, Travel & Sports Australia and Eden Corporate Travel.


The company says there’s also a number of agencies whose re-signed contracts are currently being processed.

CEO and Managing Director of Helloworld Limited, Andrew Burnes, said the re-signings acknowledge the value of being a member of the group.

“We are delighted to have these major corporate agency groups recommit to Helloworld for Business and are pleased to see the continued confidence and growth in our networks.”

“The HWFB brand is continuing to deliver outstanding commercial outcomes to our members and having these major business agents re-sign with Helloworld is evidence of the continued value we are delivering right across our retail and corporate offerings.”

As Australia’s largest network of premium independently owned corporate travel agents and travel management companies, HWFB offers agencies access to exclusive supplier arrangements, agent remuneration and central purchasing rewards, according to Reho Travel’s CEO, Karsten Horne.

Membership also offers access to the HLO Loyalty Share Bonus Scheme as well as the ‘paid on own performance’ incentive model, which was one of the major benefits of re-signing, said Tom Goldman from Goldman Travel.

“Helloworld for Business delivers us end to end value as Members and we know there is no other offer in the marketplace that will do so.”
