A genuine recommendation for a friendly, personal, efficient travel company from Alice.
As you know, at the MIA we really believe in the importance in supporting SME’s – whether that be independent music shops, Small British Instrument Manufacturers, or in this case one of our valued Allied Members and the MIA’s recommended travel partner – Victor Manni Travel.
This time, it’s an opportunity for you to support a small business. You’ll find out in this article that all it takes is a phone call. You won’t be disappointed…
I caught up with Simon Manni, the MD of the company. To give you some background, they were founded 36 years ago by his Father. The team is made up of Simon, Steve and Karen. They’d describe themselves as ‘industry veterans’ with combined experience of over 60 years.
The first thing that comes across when you get in contact with Victor Manni is that they have a genuine interest in your travel plans, whether it’s for business or leisure. It’s refreshing to be talking to a consultant who asks what you want rather than assumes, which tends to happen when dealing with a large corporation. They really listen, and approach your itinerary in a flexible manner, thinking outside the box.
An email or a phone call to the team costs nothing, and they are able to respond to enquiries on the same day. Why wouldn’t you give them a try?!
Some of the benefits of using Victor Manni for your business/personal travel:
- Trade only fares and supplier rates, often resulting in substantial cost savings.
- Effective time management – trawling sites for the best company travel option can be an exhaustive process. Let Victor Manni do this for you
- Victor Manni will always identify cost saving opportunities, providing the option to secure fares and tariffs at the travel planning stage, allowing cancellation or changes to travel plans prior to final confirmation.
- A central point of contact provides continuity of service to your company.
Even better, the company have plenty of experience of booking passengers travelling with instruments. They previously looked after the much loved jazz and funk collective Snarky Puppy and organised the travel for their tours. In Simon’s words: ‘nothing phases us’
As members of IATA, ABTA & Advantage, Victor Manni Travel Limited have full industry accreditation enabling them to book worldwide hotel reservations, rail, ferries, car rental & assist in all passport & visa enquiries.
