About Us

Global Travel Network was formed by Rob Beecher and Allen Bell in partnership with House of Travel Holdings on 19th October 2015 and commenced trading on 4th January 2016. The core objective of the company was to provide a reliable support network for Independent Travel Agents in the New Zealand market.

We are proudly 100% New Zealand owned and operated. With the backing of House of Travel, GTN has financial stability, credibility and a great reputation. At the same time, GTN is managed and run as an independent company, able to move nimbly and react quickly to the changing market forces that occur in the independent travel space.

GTN is the only company in New Zealand that is set up solely to look after independent agents. We do not own or franchise our own shops, broker networks or travel management companies. GTN is a buying group, working in partnership with suppliers and airlines along with our family of agents and brokers. Our aim is to have a fair and equitable relationship with all our partners and our core values are Honesty, Integrity and Transparency.

GTN is New Zealand’s fastest growing travel group. Our members stretch from Whangarei in the North all the way to Dunedin in the South. We have members that hail from a variety of ethnic backgrounds – China, India, Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Nepal, the Philippines, Samoa and of course, we have a large number of Kiwi agents all around New Zealand.

The team at GTN are all passionate about what we do. We have a small team – Rob, Allen, Jeni, Sonia, Rochelle, Carolyn, Thomas, Rebecca, Olivia and Grace, with an impressive depth of knowledge. We value the relationships we have with our agents and suppliers and are always happy to share our expertise to advise and support our community of agents. We recognise that the success of GTN is reliant on the success of our agents and suppliers. GTN has experienced exponential growth ever since it started trading and our travel agent members are reaping the rewards of its success.

DON’T JUST GO – GO GLOBAL!

The Consolidation team at GTN are excellent to deal with.  They are efficient and friendly, and when there has been queries with airlines or airfares, they have always sought answers and found solutions to the problem wherever possible.  The QuikTravel system is easy to use, as well as the additional information on the system around commissions, airline contacts, policies, as well as the summary of recent changes in fares & rules from airlines.  GTN is an excellent partner, and the small personal nature of the team is a good fit for our business
