Wayte Travel welcome new staff on board

Wayte Travel Management are delighted to have announced the appointment of five new members of staff to the team.

As a result of an uptake in business following the relaxation of COVID restrictions, Wayte Travel Management have ensured that the excellent personal service provided isn’t impacted by the extra demand on the business by taking on five new members of staff, spread across our offices in Stoke-on-Trent, Jersey and London.

Managing Director, Chris Morris had this to say about the appointments

“As we come out of the pandemic and demand for business travel increases again we’re making sure that we have the resources in place to provide the excellent service we’re known for. It has always been our philosophy to employ the best people and to offer easy-access personal service, making the task of arranging travel as simple as possible. We are therefore delighted to announce a number of new members of our team.

In our Jersey office we are joined by Sarah Fitzgerald and Brenda De Oliveira who most recently worked at the BA Travel Office in St Helier. Sarah joins our business travel team and Brenda will take over our Group Travel department. Both have many years’ experience and will be a great asset to the business.

In London we’re delighted to welcome back Harish Chandegra to our team. Harish worked with us for several years before Covid struck and can’t wait to reengage !

In our Stoke office we are being joined by Stuart Carrington who will add to our already busy Marine Department headed up by Rob Massey. Finally, we’re also happy to have Will Jukes back in the fold – Will looks after our Marketing and Social Media as well as client management reporting. We fully expect to grow our team further in the coming months in what is a very exciting period for Wayte Travel.”

Sales Director, Garry Lloyd added

“I would like to welcome our new staff members on board and share Chris’ optimism for the future of Wayte Travel Management. These are exciting times.

The company has faced the obvious problems relating to the pandemic and we now look to build back stronger.
2022 will also see us launch an improved data suite with enhancements to the way we produce management reporting. This will ensure that we stay ahead of the game and provide a truly bespoke offering to each of our clients.
Whilst travel has become a little more complex, our wonderful team have kept abreast of all restrictions and stand by ready to assist all clients, new and old, with their requirements.

What are Marine Fares?

What are Marine Fares?

With much of the world’s travel coming to a halt in 2020, numerous sectors were still jetting across the globe for essential work purposes. None more so than energy firms travelling to offshore oil and gas locations and security firms providing valuable cargo ships protection from piracy.

What does a marine fare entitle you to?

Marine fares entitle the holder to more flexibility with amendments to fairs, greater baggage allowance, ensuring you can take all your required equipment for long stays offshore and extra security should flights be rescheduled, giving you priority for re-arranged flights.

Who qualifies?

To qualify for a marine fare you must be one of the following:

  • A Seaman travelling to or from a vessel on duty, with a seaman’s book
  • Staff travelling to or from a vessel who aren’t a seaman but are included on the ship’s manifest
  • The spouse of someone working on a vessel, once added to the ship’s manifest
  • An engineer or contractor travelling to or from carrying out work on a vessel or offshore

If you are one of the above it is important to be aware that you may require one of the following:

  • Your seaman’s logbook
  • Your contract of employment
  • A company headed letter which outlines your name, requirement to travel, the dates of travel and the basic information about the vessel/project you are working on.

What can Wayte Travel do?

At Wayte Travel we understand how quickly marine fare clients require a response, that’s why our dedicated Marine team, headed by Rob Massey alongside our free of charge out of hours service gives you the peace of mind that you need.

If you would like more information about marine fares, or how Wayte Travel can help do not hesitate to get in touch with Rob or Sales Director, Garry Lloyd alternatively contact the team on salesteam@waytetravel.co.uk
