MMI Travel offers total solutions


MMI Travel, a division of the Maritime and Mercantile International group, offers total travel management for individuals, families and corporate travellers from Dubai.

The company said it is one of DubaiÕs leading IATA accredited travel management companies strategically positioned in three activities - business travel management, outbound leisure travel, and inbound services.

It offers 25 years of experience and has a very strong representation in the regional corporate travel sector.

It says it offers customised holiday options for outbound travellers from the UAE through its association with top notch partners while it caters for tourists visiting the UAE through its dedicated destination management unit, the Gulf Ventures.

MMI Travel said this summer, the company is offering range of holidays for travellers seeking either short breaks or longer holidays to all parts of the world.

Foremost amongst the companyÕs best selling summer packages are multi-city packages to Europe, Far East and Australia; game trails and safaris in Africa; free accommodation offers in Paris, Geneva, and Zurich; unique holidays at a palace in Switzerland and apartments in London, Paris, Brussels, Vienna, Melbourne, Gold Coast and Sydney.

MMI TravelÕs leisure consultants are constantly developing special holiday value add packages, keeping in mind the needs and profile of UAE residents, said Ray DÕsouza, manager, incentives and leisure.

ÒOver the years, we have identified a series of holiday requirements that stem out of a collective need for convenience, comfort and friendly pricing,Ó said DÕsouza.

He urged early planning and booking of a holiday, to ensure choice of hotels, flights and destinations.

The company said to increase inbound travel, Gulf Ventures has entered into partnerships with international travel organisations such as the Thomson Group, the First Choice Group and Trail Finders.

ÒWe re-launched our Gulf Ventures operation at a decisive stage, late last year. Dubai has begun making its mark as one of the worldÕs leading conference and incentive travel destinations, and at Gulf Ventures we cater equally to holiday, business and incentive travellers alike,Ó said Gulf Ventures manager Mary Anne Boyers.

Sundar Vasudevan, Head of MMI Travel, praised the Dubai government for its efforts to maximise tourism opportunities.

Vasudevan also said the governmentÕs efforts to position Dubai as an important Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions (MICE) destination has resulted in creating a welcoming environment, adequate infrastructure, and facilities for inbound visitors.

ÒIn addition to other distinctions gained in the region (business hub, sports capital, leisure destination, cruise stopover, shopping capital, cultural centre, etc), MMI Travel will wholeheartedly support the government efforts to lead Dubai into becoming the most coveted MICE destination in the Middle East,Ó he said.

MMI Travel is the exclusive General Sales Agent (GSA) for Abercrombie and Kent, Contiki Holidays, Qantas Holidays, Simply Ski and Air New Zealand and American Airlines in the UAE.
