Marine & Energy Travel

Getting people in place safely. On time. On budget.

Since 1833, our group of companies has been highly regarded in the Maritime and Travel sectors with award-winning divisions in Shipping, Logistics, Warehousing and Distribution, Corporate and Leisure Travel. For those with marine and energy travel requirements, this means we understand exactly how important it is to have a knowledgeable and reliable partner you can trust to safely move your people from one place to another, on schedule and in a cost-effective manner.

We’re not just a travel management company that knows a bit about marine and energy travel, our parent company; the John Good Group, has colleagues in 42 countries and still provides crew transfer and liner agency services to some of the world’s most respected ship owners today. This insight into the world of shipping and vessel ownerships gives us a unique perspective into just how critical effective crew movement is, because we have to do it for ourselves.

Looking after your people 24/7

Our expert team puts cost effectiveness, flexibility and safety at the heart of our service. With extensive experience in managing the complex global travel needs of companies working within the Marine and Energy sectors, our team understands the importance of making time critical connections happen while keeping to budgets.

Our professionally trained teams are available 24 hours a day to take care of all your travel requirements, from taxis and trains to hotels and planes, giving you complete peace of mind that every step of the journey is smooth and hassle free.

Keeping your business moving

As experienced liner agents, we know the implications of late arriving crew or travel delays that impact your schedule. If you’re responsible for crew or team movement, you need assurance that your travel partner will always deliver, because if they don’t, it will affect your business profit and productivity.

Our marine & energy travel service gives our customers this peace of mind by ensuring they don’t give travel a second thought because they know we’ve got it covered every time, whether it’s travel arrangements, passport renewals, visa applications or health and travel advice. Our support doesn’t end there, however, as experienced freight forwarders and an IATA Dangerous Goods Regulated Agent, we can assist with much more than travel related queries, such as shipping of spare parts or equipment to keep your business moving.

Eliminating the manual processes traditionally associated with expenses frees up finance staff, ensures employees get paid faster and gives a business real-time visibility into employee expenses.

Global marine and offshore airfares

An excellent service is only half the battle; you have to make sure your budget is maximised too. That’s why we hold Preferred Supplier status with all the major airlines to provide Marine and Offshore fares to our eligible customers. Our Global Marine and Offshore fares offer savings, flexibility and additional luggage allowance, however, we’ll always compare these to low-cost carriers and our own in-house discounted fares to make sure you’re getting the best deal.

We also offer a broad range of discounts on travel products like rail tickets, car hire, ferries, airport lounges and airport parking.

Cost effective accomodation

We book accommodation worldwide, generating savings through our multi-channel hotel content. We create savings by giving our customers access to the unrivalled buying power of the Uniglobe Group, which results in significant discounts on hotel rates around the world. However, we also check prices with Internet sites offering distressed stock such as and, to ensure we deliver value with every single booking.

Our flexible payment solutions include payment on arrival, pre-paid or full charges billed back to your account with Good Travel Management.
