Maiden Voyage, a provider of female business traveller safety solutions, and multinational TMC Globalstar have joined forces to enhance safety for both women and LGBTQ travellers.
The partnership will give Globalstar access to a range of products and services supplied by Maiden Voyage, which are designed to help TMCs deliver an enhanced duty of care to clients.
Maiden Voyage says that Globalstar’s clients are by nature multinational organisations that send travellers to diverse markets around the world. As the legal implications for women and LGBTQ employees can vary in these markets, having a TMC who is well informed about such nuances can provide an increased level of safety for those travellers.
Carolyn Pearson, CEO and founder of Maiden Voyage, said: “We already work with a small number of TMCs here in the UK, but the partnership with Globalstar will enable us as an organisation to expand significantly. This will allow us to take our message out to those organisations that are floundering about giving gender-specific travel safety advice in a relevant and sensitive context and ultimately, together we will be able to make the world a safer place for female and LGBTQ travellers.”
Steve Hartwell, president of Globalstar, added: “We understand that legal and cultural nuances carry around the world and as a global organisation we strive to deliver service and expertise with a difference. Our partnership with Maiden Voyage adds a valuable solution to our service and will allow us to further educate travellers on global and local risks.”
