About Travelport

Travelport is a Global Travel Technology company and the world's third largest Travel Commerce Platform (if this doesn't mean anything to you, don't worry! It will by the end of this page). Essentially, we are the middle man between two sets of customers, ‘Travel Providers’ (e.g. airlines & hotels) & ‘Travel Buyers’ (e.g. online travel agencies or travel management companies). Our software enables these two parties to buy, share & sell travel.

Let’s imagine you fancy a trip for two to Majorca! You visit an Online Travel Agency (e.g. Booking.com) and select Majorca between certain dates and within seconds you have hundreds of hotels, flights and car rental options… all at your fingertips… What brings all that information together and puts it in front of your eyes? Well, that's us, that's Travelport!

We do other cool tech stuff too… ever used the EasyJet app? We designed, created & maintain it!

When you embark on a career at Travelport we'll ensure your potential is nurtured and developed throughout your time with us. You’ll become part of a valued team where you can work hard, tackle new challenges and reach your potential as you deliver outstanding results and make a real impact. Not only this but you will help us give back to our local communities through fundraising and volunteering and you'll take part in our Internpreneurship initiative, which will empower you with the ability to change the way we work & function as a business.

We’re a bold bunch of diverse and talented people & we’re all on the same mission…to make Travelport the partner of choice for Travel's game changers.

We put people first. We stay one step ahead. We keep things simple. We win

    I had a really great team where interns were a major part in all of the team functions. We were valued as highly as any other team member and particularly in our team we had so many team events and opportunities to get to know each other and gain more of a friendship....

  • Business Management Intern

    I throuoghly enjoyed my placement at Travelport. My team were amazing! I was lucky to be part of such a large intern cohort (28 of us in total) which meant that I built many friendships within the intern community. Besides from our everyday tasks, we were able to work on many intern initiatives, such as raising money for charity through the CSR programme. This was great fun as it meant we had to work as big team to achieve our goals....

  • Finance Intern

    I have thoroughly enjoyed my placement year at Travelport. It has been invaluable and I have learned more than I ever expected before I started. The people at Travelport and my team in particular were so welcoming and friendly, always willing to help me. I was given exposure to a lot more information and responsibility than I thought I would. What I enjoyed most was working in a team of supportive, kind, funny and all round awesome people who knew their job inside out and made my first experience of working in an office a really enjoyable one! The job role was challenging but do- able and allowed me to learn a lot more about the profession I'd like to go into. As well as this the Corporate Social Responsibility activities were a nice breather from my day to day job role....
