Who we are
Blue Cube is a proudly independent travel management company headquartered by Kew Bridge, West London with additional offices in central London, Glasgow and Accra, Ghana. We have successfully delivered an unrivalled corporate travel experience to our varied and valued client portfolio for over 16 years. We pride ourself as a true travel consultancy, rather than simply an ‘order taker’ or ‘travel facilitator’. We are committed to the development of our staff through accredited apprenticeship scheme’s combined with recruitment of only the finest and most experienced staff in the industry.
The purpose of starting Blue Cube, was to create a company where all clients, large or small truly felt important and appreciated. We also wished to create an exceptional working environment in which employees thrived and really felt like they were part of the company, resulting in ultimate client satisfaction.
Mel, Neil and Kenny firmly believed back in 2003 (as they do today) in the philosophy that ‘we must deliver exceptional service in everything we do’. Plus, if we keep our employees happy, then they in turn will keep our clients happy.
This philosophy has created the exceptional reputation that Blue Cube has become renowned for today. We are proud to still be looking after our original clients along with the many additions to our client portfolio.
July – On-line booking tools are ever evolving, and we have monitored the enhancements since implementing our first tool. We are excited to say with bc online, we were one of the first travel management companies in the UK to be NDC capable.
March – Company Growth continues. Another office move, we move from our Richmond office 1200sq ft to our new ultra modern, high tech 6000sq ft offices at Kew Bridge.
We launch the Blue Cube apprenticeship scheme, recruiting our first apprentice. The excitement of having an enthusiastic young person within our midst rubbed off on everyone. The scheme has allowed us to develop a unique approach on how we nurture our future generation of employees.
We implement our first online booking tool powered by Traveldoo, embracing new technology.
We celebrated our 10 year anniversary!
Blue Cube Ghana officially opened. As a travel management company, with close links to several Oil and Gas companies, the decision was made to open an office in Ghana, West Africa.
The Ash Cloud; Eyjafjallajokull Volcano in Iceland erupted creating the highest level of air travel disruption since the Second World War.
Company growth continues. Another office move was required due to the increasing number of staff. Although sorry to leave Kew Village, it was only a short drive away to equally leafy Richmond upon Thames.
Our first implant – We were tracked down by an ex-client from our days at Travelforce. They had become disillusioned with their incumbent travel supplier since we left and wished to rekindle the relationship under our new guise. Before you know it, terms were agreed and we had two designated consultants on site at their prestigious Knightsbridge address. They remain a client today.
March – After a very successful first year, the decision was made to venture north of the border to Glasgow. Kenny led the charge (being a native of the City) and opened the company’s first office on Newton Place G3.
June – The W14 basement office has served its purpose and with an additional three members of the team, bigger premises were needed. So a light and bright office in a small mews development in Kew Village was found. It had windows and everything!!
February – The three current owners (Mel, Kenny and Neil) finally ‘opened their doors’ for business, based out of a dingy, windowless basement off the North End Road, London W14. The surroundings may have been dank, but the attitude was one of excitement, enthusiasm and determination of making a success of the new business.
