“We are very excited to be recognized as outstanding among our peers with this Magellan Award,” said AmTrav President Craig Fichtelberg. “It is very gratifying that our mission to provide customers with an exemplary, innovative product is appreciated and cited on a national and even global scale.”

AmTrav’s gold award win will be highlighted in a special Magellan Awards section of the October 2017 issue of Travel Weekly.
AmTrav’s a2b’s platform, which was cited for the award, employs a clean, modern user interface that makes booking and managing travel for individuals and staff — while monitoring and controlling travel costs — both easy and quick. a2b also offers unique features that are critical to business travelers and their employers, such as traveler/preference/payment self-management; a corporate discount manager; in-flight amenity manager; interactive, real-time reports, and more. a2b is part of AmTrav’s all-in-one travel platform that out-performs today’s largest providers of corporate travel management services, which often amount to hard-to-use, behind-the-scenes amalgamations of third-party tools by different vendors. As a comprehensive, stand-alone solution, the a2b tool allows AmTrav to be much more nimble and responsive than any other company in the industry.
a2b is available with no contracts, no commitments, and no fees.
