About us

Our Purpose

Everyone within our business understands our purpose and the role each and everyone of us plays in achieving it. It means we don’t just come to work to do a job, we come to work to make a difference. Our purpose is…

“To remove the stress of booking, managing and undertaking business travel by making corporate travel better for everyone.”

Our values

As a family owned business, our values are part of everything we do, giving our customers a unique experience of trust and partnership.

Support each other and work together…

 

Be a responsible member of the community…

 

Always seek to
improve…

 

Social Responsibility

We aim to make a positive and lasting difference to the communities we live and work in. That’s why we created the pledge programme.

Pledge Profits

Every year we donate a percentage of our profits to the Matthew Good Foundation, a foundation created by our parent company. Our profit contribution provides vital funds that help charities and community projects continue their valuable work.

Pledge Time

We encourage employees to take part in activities that enhance and serve the communities in which we live and work. This offers much needed support to valuable projects and also has a positive impact on our employees’ personal development and approach to work and life.

Pledge Service

We welcome the opportunity to support non-profitable and charitable organisations with their work. Those that have business travel requirements can use our services to help drive down costs and maximise their vital funds. We offer non-profits and charities a significant discount on our service fees to help make professional travel management services more accessible.

Pledge for Planet

We work hard to minimise the impact of our operations on the environment, that’s why our head office is on one of the UK’s greenest business parks! We also work with our customers to help them reduce the environmental impact of their business travel too, we do this through travel avoidance, carbon offsetting and promoting alternatives that are kinder to the environment.

The Mathew Good Foundation

The Matthew Good Foundation was established in 2011 when the Good family and company directors decided that the company had more to offer society than its core commercial activities. It would allow employees working within the John Good Group of companies to support charitable causes they are passionate about. The Matthew Good Foundation was named after Matthew Good following his sudden death whilst taking part in a charity run. Matthew was a Director of the John Good group of companies and was dedicated to the family business and everyone within it. The Foundation’s concept embodied his principles, values and commitment to employees.

Funding

The foundation will match funding raised by Good Travel Management employees and their families for local or national charities.

We donate a percentage of our profits into the foundation every year to support employees and their immediate family in charitable and community work, fund-raising and supporting positive projects in the community.

History

Today we provide high-quality, professional and personable travel management solutions to growing small and medium-sized businesses from a diverse range of industries throughout the UK.

Our parent company, the John Good Group, was founded in 1833, originally as a shipping company, which continues today. Becoming a full travel management company was a natural step for the business with the advent of air travel, and the John Good Group acquired an IATA license in 1946, which is believed to be the longest established IATA license in the UK.

Since then we’ve grown organically and today, employ 50 people within our team.

We’re really proud of our history and heritage, and despite our continuous growth, we’re still a family-owned company. Our values are at the heart of everything we do and help us create a culture and service that we’re all proud to be a part of.

Partners

We know working in partnership is essential to effective travel management. As well as working in collaboration with our customers, we partner with other like-minded companies who can offer services to complement ours and make managing travel and expenses even better for our customers.
