Managing Owner, Fyne Travel by Schmidt & Partner Lufthansa City Center
four.beyond can bring hotel and travel designer together to place bookings more effectively, economically and customer-oriented in the future. We appreciate the direct contact with the hotel and would prefer to book directly due to the individual requirements of the customers. Unfortunately, it is technically still very costly / cumbersome - the commission payments / conditions often worse than with the major tour operators. And it is costly to monitor the receipt of the commission.
Owner, ReiseZiel Baden-Baden
Definition: What is "company foundation"?
Generally: Establishment of a workable, profit-making business. I am in as a founding member because this is a "super-startup" idea. I cannot remember anything comparable to this ever happening before. A revolutionary mix between tour operating, OTA and luxury travel agent with concentrated specialized knowledge coupled with direct access to hotels & resorts! Does not get better than this …..
Founder & Managing Director, Jordan. REISEN UND MEER GmbH, Asperg

Owner, reiseagentur dana albers, Mücke
The exchange among colleagues who are just as passionate and dedicated is very enriching. A large network in the tourism industry brings new symbioses and opportunities.
Owner, TUI Travel Star Reisebüro im Musikviertel, Leipzig
I have noticed for quite some time that me & my company would profit from direct booking opportunities travel agency and the hotel. Because this way we can offer our customer more creativity, reliability, higher flexibility, especially good rates & privileges for a selected hotel portfolio worldwide. The time for such a partnership is ripe and future oriented
