A Brief History

First established in 1983 as TD Travel, we have over 34 years experience in corporate and business travel management.

TD Travel went through a rebrand in 2013 following the purchase of Hotelscene which formed the brand new CTI Trusted Travel Partner.

How CTI became the World’s first Trusted Travel Partner

CTI’s journey from Travel Management Company to Trusted Travel Partner began shortly after the company’s inception in 2013.

Created by the merger of a Travel Management Company (TD Travel Group) and a Hotel Booking Agency (Hotelscene), CTI was in quite a unique position. It meant we had all the experience of these two great companies with the freedom that allowed us to take a fresh look at things.

Most companies get stuck in one way of working, but we have been able to take everything back to basics and focus on the true value we can deliver.

At CTI we don’t believe in having just consultants, clients or customers but rather partners who work together to ensure the best return on a company’s travel spend.  Our Trusted Travel Partner ethos has already seen us join up with organisations like Airplus, Maiden Voyage, Concur Travel and AirRefund to deliver real, tangible results.

We pride ourselves on getting to know your company’s travel DNA inside out and offering you a travel solution that works.  Regardless of offline service or online efficiency, it is this willingness to work alongside their partners that makes us stand out.

Our trailblazing team is spread over three regional hubs: ManchesterBristol and Leeds. So wherever you are in the UK, and wherever you want to go in the world, our experts have it covered.
