Key Travel works with some of the best and biggest universities in the UK, building the best solutions for their travel needs.
We recognise the complex structures of academic institutions and the frequently autonomous nature of many faculties, schools and departments, and we excel in our ability to customise and adjust travel programmes to fit each organization’s needs.
Through Key Travel, institutions can access specialist academic fares that have been specially negotiated with over 300 airlines, delivering great value for money and scalable solutions.
Our Price Match Promise program has delivered over £ 200k in savings to our customers just last year. Key Travel is committed to matching cheaper prices on airfares for confirmed bookings, provided that all conditions are identical and the booker notifies Key Travel within one hour of finding the cheaper fare.
We have invested heavily in our IT systems, products and service delivery to customise travel programmes that meet these varying demands.
