About Us

Our Company

Our vision is to be the preferred buying network for independent corporate and premium leisure agencies, and the most transparent and respected partner for industry suppliers.

CT Partners was founded in 2004 by a small group of Australian owned travel companies who aspired to create a partnership that was designed to serve the needs of their travellers and ensure the best possible commercial outcomes for their businesses.

Today, CT Partners’ membership is more than 30, with a combined turnover of $2 billion and expanding. Our collective size enables CT Partners to negotiate mutually beneficial commercial agreements with air, hotel, cruise, land and technology supplier partners.

Our mission is to enable our members to grow their businesses and increase their profitability through exceptional buying power, intelligent, informed advice, and by creating an environment for success.

We offer a collaborative voice on industry issues such as content distribution, the latest developments in travel technology, corporate responsibility, and training & development of industry professionals.
