Happy New Year, and welcome to TravelPlex Travel & Cruise’s new monthly travel newsletter.

I hope you had a very prosperous and fulfilling 2012.  We are excited about what lies ahead in 2013.  Some say you can’t move forward without looking back.  If that is the case, then I like to think 2012 has helped us prepare for a phenomenal 2013.  Now, more than ever, we are positioned to provide you with the great service and technology that you’ve come to expect from TravelPlex.

There were many ways in which we improved as a company this past year, including two new additions to our management team. John Parker was brought on as VP of Business Development and Norv Beffa was added in a newly created VP of Client Services position. Both are already making a huge impact in our company.   

Other changes in 2012 include adding new software to our already strong technology base.   SafeToGo was added and continues to be rolled out to help our advisors be more proactive with travelers ‘in route’ to and from their destinations.   

Additionally, Concur Technologies selected us as their exclusive travel management company in the St. Louis area. For you that means offering you a front row seat to the best on-line travel technology available today.

TravelPlex.com has been completely redesigned and relaunched with a much cleaner and user friendly experience.  Check it out at www.travelplex.com   

Finally, to make sure you are always on top of the latest travel industry news and trends, we have created this Newsletter to do just that. Each month you will receive updates on the latest travel news, leisure vacation offers and corporate travel news that is pertinent to you. Feel free to share it with co-workers, friends, or anyone who travels for business – or for fun. 

We at TravelPlex want to make sure that our travelers always feel like VIP’s, whether you travel once every six months, or you’re a road warrior. We are committed to bringing you the best travel service at the best prices available anywhere. 

As we move into this New Year, I want you to know, that on behalf of all of us at TravelPlex Travel & Cruises, we are dedicated to serving you the best way we can.  If at any time we do not meet your expectations, I want you to let me know. Borrowing a line from our dear airline friends….. We know you have a choice, and we thank you for choosing TravelPlex Travel & Cruises. I hope you have a wonderful New Year!
