About Global Access
Hybrid - Travel Agency / Broker
The mission of Global Access is to help business and leisure travelers save money on fares and find hard-to-get seats on almost any airline. We offer personal service and work with travelers directly to find what they need and help them get the travel experience they desire and deserve. While we are fortunate to arrange a small amount of celebrity travel, our primary customers are corporate and leisure travelers like yourself, and we know how to make sure that you get exactly the right flights at the right fares.
Wayne Swearengin, the owner of Global Access, offers over 20 years of experience in the travel industry. He spent ten years as a corporate travel planner with a Japanese travel agency before starting his own agency in 1999. Wayne has arranged travel for some major celebrities and also large corporations and has access to most travel consortia, along with an affiliation to TZELL TRAVEL GROUP for corporate travel and WCT for vacation travel. Wayne also works with consolidators such as Jalpak International, ANA Sales Americas, C&H International, Travel Professionals and many others too numerous to mention.
These connections enable Global Access to offer the “white glove” treatment, saving you the hassle of dealing with rude, abrupt and undereducated discount agents and consolidators, while keeping within the same price range. Global Access can use connections and rapport with the sales reps of most major airlines, and is often in a position to ask for waivers or favors, which is simply unheard of when dealing direct. In Addition, Global Access can provide service in 3 Languages: English, Japanese, and Korean.
We think of ourselves as a small agency, no matter how much we grow, because we constantly strive to provide the best service based on your individual, unique needs. Unlike some larger companies, we understand that this individual attention is the best way to maintain lasting relationships, which grows our business without sacrificing personal attention.
We work with the occasional celebrity to provide travel arrangements, but we promise each customer the exact same treatment: attentive and accommodating.
Your Personal Travel Agent
Our service is characterized by active listening, industry knowledge and a personal touch. We work with you to ensure your travel experience in a way that a larger agency simply cannot duplicate. In addition, we help frequent flyers get the most of their memberships and miles. Elite Level members especially can rest assured that their mileage accounts and travel clubs are expertly handled. Global Access is familiar with the mileage and award programs at various airlines, and consults with them on your behalf. Our industry connections take the worry out of your itinerary, and upgrades are almost guaranteed on certain airlines if you are a top tier elite flyer.
