To be the leading Travel Management Company to the Maritime Industry by providing value and expertise to our customers in the commercial, offshore, government, leisure, crew, super yacht, corporate and marine support sectors. Our team of professionals available 24/7 offer specialized airfares, state of the art technology and years of experience in airline schedules, visa requirements, cost savings and superior levels of service to our valued clients.


Our business reached yet another major milestone in 2019 when V.Group, the leading global marine services provider, acquired Global Marine Travel from Inchcape Shipping Services. The move combines V.Travel with GMT’s industry-leading marine travel expertise and brings greater scale to the combined operations, while increasing the companies’ ability to offer truly global, 24/7 travel operations focused on delivering customer satisfaction.

Through combined resources and investment in digital technologies, V.Group, V.Travel, and GMT will create a market-leading platform for managing and simplifying the seafarer journey from home to ship and back, enhancing the overall seafarer experience.
