What makes UNIGLOBE stand out with customers?

I love the relationships formed with my clients.
 
What’s the biggest change you’ve seen in travel in recent years?
The biggest change is that our competitor has become the Internet… Expedia, etc.
 
What about corporate travel specifically?
Many airlines are introducing products specifically for small business – Air Canada Corpora Rewards, WestJet small business, etc.

Do you have a favourite experience/trip/event/person that you’ve booked?

We book travel for the (Toronto) Blue Jays; (it was) very exciting year last year!
Tell us about a time you “pulled a rabbit out of a hat” to make or salvage a client’s trip?
When a client becomes stressed or panicked due to different types of delays that can arise and helping them get to their final destination, whether it is getting them on an alternative flight or re-routed or if need be an overnight hotel reservation, is rewarding knowing I’ve managed to help and alleviate some stress for them.
 
How can an agent go above and beyond to help a client?
Customer service is always important, being responsive and aware of a clients’ need and preferences, ensuring the client always feels like a priority.
