April 2010 saw Europe come to a virtual standstill due to the Icelandic volcano. Thousands of travellers were stranded around the world unable to reach their destinations. Thanks to the dedication of our Corporate Traveller teams, who were available 24 hours every day, our clients were given every available assistance. Here's just a sample of what they said:
"...Stephanie's diligent work went far beyond what any of us would have expected and was extremely appreciated."
Andrew Gillis, Sepro Systems
"Gwen went above and beyond the call of duty helping me to change the travel arrangements several times over several days, cheerfully and without complaint. And then when the skies suddenly opened, she absolutely nailed the most efficient, timely, and cost effective route home..."
Mark Jarvis, President, Hard Creek Nickel Corp
"We called right away from the Amsterdam airport and within 5-10 minutes we had a hotel booked in town, which was a luxury many people did not have. It was great to have the resources at Corporate Traveller at our disposal to ultimately get us on a flight home. We overheard some other travellers in the hotel this morning say that they went to the airport to buy tickets and they stood in line for 4 hours! We were actually able to work productively from the comfort of our hotel lounge and not worry about booking hassles."
Brian Ulrich, Vice President, Engineering, International Water-Guard Industries Inc.
"I"m alive and traveling on the trains in Switzerland and Germany, so all is good. I did end up calling Kirk in the middle of the night to get him to reserve a rental car. They were quoting 600 Euros a day and Kirk got me one for 55. So I owe both Becca and Kirk for keeping things going."
Mike Rodger, VP Marketing, Dig Media Inc.
