utilizing the best travel resources, the latest technology, and our quality relationships we founded The Travel Collaborative. Intelligence, efficiency, personalized service were our mission principles then. And they still are today.
In the beginning we changed the rules in our hyper-competitive industry by establishing a creative, collaborative environment for some of the highest-powered, most talented consultants in the business to actually work together. Our client-focus, along with this collaborative mission, created a powerful new agency. Our concept was awarded the “Best Management Idea” of the year by Travel Weekly.
In 1999, we became a branch of the Tzell Travel Group, allowing us to leverage far greater buying power by way of lower fares and rates and discounts for our clients. Tzell has continued to grow over the years and is now part of Travel Leaders Group - currently ranked first among the nation's largest corporate travel management companies, according to Business Travel News- thus giving TTC clout far beyond what our size might predict.
Today our people are our greatest strength - with over 50 professionals, experienced, knowledgeable, determined, persistent, and all dedicated to being the best travel agency you will ever have. Our clients have always been our strongest referral resource. TTC works with some of the most prestigious clients throughout the greater Boston area including higher educational and research institutions along with healthcare, biotech and pharmaceutical companies. Therefore, our travel consultants are well-versed in handling complex international and domestic travel itineraries from our offices located just outside of Harvard Square in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Our principles of intelligence, efficiency, and highly personalized service are as unshakeable now as they were on that first day in 1985 when we opened our doors.
