What Our Clients Say

"Prior to engaging in SB Travel in 2006, travel management services were provided to QAD by TQ3 Navigant and American Express. After working for several years with these larger companies, we wanted a personal relationship that would enable our travel agent to be more responsive to QAD's specific travel requirements. SB Travel has been instrumental in developing strong relationships with airlines, hotels and automobile rental agencies on behalf of QAD, thereby reducing costs and increasing levels of service. SB Travel has provided a high level of personal service at all levels within their organization."

- Kent Harris, QAD

"Since signing with SB Travel in 2012, our foreign and domestic travel have been seamless. David and his team insured that the integration period was as easy as possible. The SB Travel agents are very helpful, have great response times, and know their business well. The contract negotiation that David provides not only helps us to save money, but has allowed us to focus on our business growth."

- Kathy Gerrity, NMB
