ITP – International Travel Partnership

Local strength united in a global network


ITP is one of the fastest growing international business travel agency networks with a clear mission: Nobody knows their own market better than a strong local owner. The network therefore primarily brings together owner-run travel agencies from around the world in the markets relevant to business travel.

History of ITP

itp_logo.jpgThe cornerstone for establishment of the present-day ITP network was laid in 1986 with the founding of Hickory Europe Limited – a subsidiary of Hickory SA with headquarters in London.

The decision to establish a European network independent of the USA led to Jean Claude Fert becoming the owner of the new network in 1995 under the ITP – International Travel Partnership brand name.

ITP offers its partners a comprehensive business travel portfolio worldwide: modern products such as the iBank reporting tool guarantee support of a consistently high quality for shared customers worldwide.

Our aims in this strategic partnership are your advantages: a continuous transfer of expertise in the fields of innovation and technology allows for perfect coverage of the different international market requirements.

With a clear focus on medium-sized companies, ITP is therefore the ideal partner for FIRST Business Travel. Exclusively for the German market, FIRST Business will actively contribute as the largest partner to building up the shared international network.
