Today, we here at Travelogix are delighted to announce that we have agreed to a multi-year extension with our very first TMC customer, Meon Valley Travel .

Long-lasting relationships are crucial to our success story, and we’re thrilled that a decade on from first signing with them, Meon Valley Travel has decided to continue working with Travelogix for a further three years.

This extension sees Meon Valley Travel utilise our leading data management and reporting platform, Analytix, and all modules that sit within the platform; DataShare, DataValet, DataPublisher, and our new duty of care solution for the TMC market, Geo.

The team at Meon will also have access to our Hotel Harmonisation module, which is the first of its kind to use AI and machine learning to normalise the vast array of property name variants that exist across various technology platforms and map back to the property’s own unique identity recognised in Google.

James Beagrie, Managing Director at Meon Valley Travel, and Board Member at The Advantage Travel Partnership, commented:

“We have enjoyed an exceptional relationship with Travelogix and continue to transform our offering to our clients in partnership.

“Extending our commitment is a no-brainer and we treasure the innovation and creativity of all at Travelogix in helping us and our clients demonstrate our best selves.

“We look forward to moving beyond the current boundaries with Travelogix both domestically and internationally and welcome the latest integration of hotel harmonisation into our platform.”

Tahir Zia, Director of Sales at Travelogix, commented:

“This is a very special day for the entire team here at Travelogix. Meon Valley was our very first customer when Gary Jones and Chris Lewis started Travelogix a decade ago, so extending our relationship for another three years seems fitting.

“James Beagrie and the wider team at Meon have always played a central role in our innovation here at Travelogix. Whether that be building a case for a new platform entirely, or the development of certain requested functionality within our existing solutions – their willingness to stress-test these innovations, and be part of that development process, has proved invaluable.

“On behalf of myself and the team here at Travelogix, we’re incredibly grateful to the team at Meon for entrusting Travelogix with their reporting and data management needs for a further three years.”

The boss of a travel business which specialises in emergency repatriation services said they have helped hundreds of people get home during the global lockdown .

Meon Valley Travel Group has organised the repatriation of hundreds of people back to the UK, Australia, the United States, Germany, France and other countries since the pandemic hit.

The business, which also deals with business trips, holidays and emergency medical assistance, employs almost 100 people from its head office in Petersfield, Hampshire, and a business travel office in Thurmaston, Leicester.

Managing director James Beagrie said business travel and overseas holidays disappeared overnight when the pandemic hit.

But working with NatWest the company has used the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS) to provide it with the working capital to maintain its operations helping repatriate people to their home countries and support customers whose holidays have been cancelled.

Mr Beagrie, who has chaired several sector bodies in a career spanning more than 20 years in the industry, said: “The pandemic has resulted in a significant number of people finding themselves in very difficult situations abroad and away from their homes and families.

“Many are professionals whose employers have sought to repatriate them for safety reasons during the pandemic, while others are sadly in hospital needing to come home.

“The specialist services we provide are vital to helping these people, which is why it was so important we maintained our core operations during lockdown.

“It has been difficult, there is no denying that.

“The pandemic has resulted in a significant part of our business being temporarily impacted, but we’ve built a resilient product and team, and the support and speed in which NatWest has worked to help us has only gone to enhance our mindset giving us the confidence we need to move forward positively and help the people that rely upon our business.”

Mikael Rosen, NatWest relationship director for the Solent region, said: “Our purpose at NatWest is to support the people, businesses and communities we serve, and that purpose has never been more important than now.

“Companies like Meon Valley Group play a pivotal role in our regional economies providing employment, investment and important services.

“Our role was to provide the support and help they needed so they could continue doing what they do so well.

“That means more than just providing finance; it means doing everything you can to help businesses during this difficult time and that is what we strive to do every day.”

European Union criticizes Russia for removing Estonian buoys, demand an explanation from Moscow

Associated Press

BRUSSELS – European Union foreign policy chief Josep Borrell on Friday called the removal of Estonian buoys by Russian border guards on a river separating the Baltic country from Russia “unacceptable,” and demanded an explanation from Moscow and the immediate return of the orange floats.

Early Thursday, Estonian border guards noticed that their Russian counterparts had removed 25 of the 50 buoys that Estonia had installed on the Narva River to prevent boats from accidentally crossing the border.

Borrell said the incident “is part of a broader pattern of provocative behavior and hybrid actions by Russia.”

Estonia also dubbed it “unacceptable,” but said its response “remains calm and clear-eyed.”

"We treat this as a provocative border incident,” the Foreign Ministry in Tallinn said Thursday.

For decades, Estonia and Russia have installed buoys on the Narva River for the summer, with the towns of Narva on the Estonian side and Ivangorod on the Russian bank, largely in mutual agreement.

Every year, the marking of the shipping routes is rechecked because “the riverbed changes over time,” said Eerik Purgel, the local Estonian Border Guard head. Last year, Russia said it did not agree with the locations of the Estonian buoys.

This year, "we decided to release the floating marks into the water for the summer season according to a 2022 agreement, because they are necessary to avoid navigational errors, so that our fishermen and other hobbyists do not accidentally wander into Russian waters,” he said.

The first 50 buoys were installed on May 13. However, 25 of them were removed by their Russian counterparts early in the morning 10 days later, he added.

The Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Friday summoned Russia’s deputy head of mission, the Baltic News Service agency said. BNS quoted Foreign Minister Margus Tsahkna as saying that they “clearly expressed to the Russian charge d’affaires that such actions are provocative and unacceptable."

Estonia’s Foreign Ministry said the action “fits well within the broader pattern of Russia’s provocative behavior,” and drew parallels to the border mapping incidents in the Baltic Sea earlier this week. According to media reports, Moscow could revise the borders of its territorial waters in the region.

The draft proposal was published on an official Russian government website for draft legislation but disappeared hours after it was posted on Wednesday. It wasn’t immediately clear why.

Russian media said the Defense Ministry in Moscow had suggested updating the coordinates used to measure the strip of territorial waters off its mainland coast and that of its islands in the Baltic Sea. The existing coordinates were approved in 1985, the ministry says, adding that they were “based on small-scale nautical navigation maps” and don’t correspond to the “modern geographical situation.”

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov later said there was “nothing political” in the Defense Ministry’s proposal, and Russian news agencies said Moscow did not intend to revise the border or the width of its territorial waters.

Since Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine in early 2022, Finland and Sweden have joined NATO, meaning that the Baltic Sea — Russia’s maritime point of access to the city of St. Petersburg and its Kaliningrad enclave — is now almost surrounded by members of the military alliance.
