The Orbit Difference

At Orbit, we’re a business owned and operated by local travel experts with global knowledge. We know that when it comes to business travel, you don’t want to be thinking about where you need to be, but rather why you’re there. That’s why our dedicated team work hard to form enduring partnerships that provide you with seamless and efficient travel and event management solutions. Solutions that require you to think less about travelling and more about the business you’re travelling for. And we’re proud to say, we’re awarded for helping businesses do business. Because at Orbit, we believe in better business, together.

Our vision is to be the travel management company of choice for business, through building partnerships and delivering effective travel and event management solutions that are creative, innovative and future-focused. Orbit’s experience and expertise, unique business model, technology focused solutions and strong partnerships deliver true value for our clients and provide the Orbit difference. It’s this differentiation that contributes to the longevity of our customer retention and our growth as a 100% New Zealand owned and operated travel management company.

Our people

We're 100% New Zealand owned, and everyone – from our owner operators to our travel consultants and account managers, our finance, product, training, IT and HR teams – is a strength.  As a client you will enjoy the highly personal service and invaluable expertise of your local office and benefit from the huge pool of knowledge, resources and decision-making that comes with belonging to a nationwide network of offices across New Zealand and Australia. 

Working in partnership

Orbit doesn’t take a one size fits all approach when it comes to travel management. Instead, we work alongside our clients to provide a travel management programme that best suits their needs. We see our ourselves as an extension to your business and we will take time to understand your objectives when it comes to managing your travel. Our partnerships and alliances across the travel industry also means our clients are accessing the best services and the best rates in the market.

Unique business model

The uniqueness of our business model is something that sets us apart from other travel management companies in New Zealand. Because we are 100% New Zealand owned and operated, our responsiveness and decision making is built around our clients. Rather than needing to work through a head office in another country or have an airline or global ownership, our business model means we can make decisions locally, and without delay.

​Award winning TMC

Orbit’s dedication and focus on our partners, suppliers and clients have been recognised by the industry every year since the introduction of the National Travel Industry Awards (run by the Travel Agents’ Association of New Zealand) including winning Best Brand Corporate – Multi Location in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019.

Omnichannel approach

Orbit believes in an omni-channel approach to providing travel and event management solutions which is about blending the experience and expertise of our people with the most innovative technology. It also means a clear understanding about where technology plays a role and, conversely, where human interaction will result in a better outcome. This enables us to be a safe pair of hands, removing the risk and stress for business travellers while delivering quantifiable value and savings for the businesses they work for.
