Our Story

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 World Travel began in 2001, and is now New Zealand’s largest travel management company. With nine New Zealand offices, six in Australia, an office in London, and consultants dotted around the world, Orbit has you covered no matter where you are travelling. Orbit is an industry leader with annual sales of over $500 million and over 1,000 clients spanning across a large range of sectors and industries.

Our growth

We’ve come a long way since 2001. Today we have over 350 staff, nine New Zealand offices, six in Australia, and an afterhours team in London. We’ve experienced significant growth in our industry alliances and the scale of our preferred partners, ​reflecting our strong performance and position in the market.

With over 1,000 clients across a wide range of industries, in both the public and private sector, our growth is based on always being focused on the client – not as a transaction, but as a total experience.

 

We cover the world

Orbit has nine offices in New Zealand, located in Auckland, Albany, Hamilton, Tauranga, Palmerston North, Wellington, Nelson, Christchurch, and Dunedin. We also have an office in London where our afterhours staff are based, a unique solution where Kiwi staff in London respond to afterhours calls as part of their normal working day.

We love being Kiwi owned and operated, but our operations go well beyond New Zealand – with six Orbit offices in Australia, ​our office in London, consultants dotted around the world and a global partnership. So when it comes to helping our clients get up and down the country, across the Tasman, or around the globe – we've got you covered.

Better business, together

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.
