Meetings and travel management specialist Inntel has recruited five new consultants to join its in-house out-of-hours team.

Between them, the new team members boast over 80 years’ experience in the business travel industry, coming from travel management companies across the UK.

They are Phil Kidby, Farida Mohamed, Ripinder Dhody, Axel Bikinkita and Constance Wilcox.

The new consultants will provide support to corporate clients wanting to book business accommodation and travel outside of regular office opening hours.

Inntel also provides an online booking tool, iCentral, through which clients can book, amend or cancel accommodation, travel and meetings electronically.

Douglas O’Neill, CEO at Inntel, said it is essential to offer both technological and human booking support: "Clients can of course book through iCentral at any time, however, many clients who are looking to make and amend bookings late at night or due sudden business travel changes often prefer to speak to an expert consultant.

"Last-minute changes can be a stressful situation, particularly when travelling abroad or somewhere unfamiliar and a human voice can provide reassurance."
