Charity Organisation Boosted By $25k Virgin Australia Travel Credit

July 1, 2019 Charity No Comments Email Email

A charity organisation that provides rehabilitation to Australian veterans is the recipient of a $25,000 travel credit with Virgin Australia.

Not-for-profit (NFP) organisation Mates4Mates recently collected their $25,000 cheque from Corporate Traveller’s head office in South Bank, Brisbane, amidst a round of applause and celebratory fanfare. Mates4Mates provides life-changing support to veterans who have physical or psychological injuries as a result of their service, and their families.

The customer campaign was run by SME business travel provider Corporate Traveller for their Australian customers and attracted almost 400 submissions from businesses across the private, public and the NFP sectors.

Mates4Mates told Corporate Traveller the credit would be instrumental in helping to provide veterans with access to vital programs held across Australia including their Rehabilitation Adventure Challenges and Equine Therapy programs.

Mates4Mates offer their programs at no cost to registered ‘Mates’ and their family members. As part of their services, the organisation covers the cost of travel and expenses for participants taking part in their rehabilitation programs.

Corporate Traveller Account Manager Mush Daniels said there were so many worthwhile responses that were submitted for the travel credit, but that the Mates4Mates’ response stood out to the judges on account of its clarity and purpose.

“I am so thrilled to be able to reward this charity organisation with the $25,000 Virgin Australia travel credit. They carry out an important role in the community in terms of helping veterans and their families to re-build their lives with quality care and support,” Mrs Daniels said.

“Mates4Mates has been a Corporate Traveller customer for about 18 months now and have been working with us to ensure their travel program is as cost efficient and streamlined as possible. This credit will certainly help them to extend their help to more veterans who need to travel to their rehabilitation programs.”

Mrs Daniels added that Corporate Traveller was also fortunate to have excellent relationships with its travel industry partners like Virgin Australia to be able to offer generous travel promotions like this one, to clients.

“Corporate Traveller is always looking for ways to add more value to its partnerships with its customers and this is just one of the many ways we do,” Mrs Daniels said.

“Whether it’s a free inclusion in your hotel rate, the chance to attend a professional development session or an opportunity to earn frequent flyer points, credits or status upgrades – it really does pay to be partnered with a travel management company that is able to bring something more to the table other than just the skills to process travel bookings.

“This is what Corporate Traveller does so well for Australian SMEs – provide tangible value to our customers above and beyond the booking transaction. This really was a special campaign for both Corporate Traveller and Virgin Australia and we’re delighted to know the credit is going to a worthwhile cause.”
