"Egencia has grown and grown consistently over the past several years, 
outpacing our major competitors and showing double-digit, top-line growth 
every year," says Rob Greyber, president of Egencia. "Geographically, we're 
expanding right along with our customers as they reach into emerging markets. 
No matter where they book their travel, travelers get the same expert Egencia 
customer service, and our clients can count on consistent travel management 
programs and consolidated reporting across all regions." 
Customer Service with Local Insights and Integrated Technology On June 30th, 
2014, Egencia launched its online services, www.egencia.cz, in the Czech 
Republic. The new online services reinforce the partnership between Egencia 
and Czech EGA partner, Business Travel Unlimited, allowing the offline 
services they provide to be integrated into the Egencia online booking system. 
Customers in that region can now access the Egencia online booking tool 
locally and continue to turn to Business Travel Unlimited for travel 
consultant services. 
Middle East North Africa Three out of the five new EGA partnerships are 
located in the strategic Middle East North Africa region. 


    --  Dubai, a major business and transportation hub for the Middle
        East, made the United Arab Emirates one of the first countries
        covered by the EGA program when it started in 2009. Egencia has
        signed a new EGA partnership there with Al Tayer Travel, a
        privately held Dubai-based company operating in 12 countries
        throughout the Middle East.
    --  In response to increasing customer demand, Egencia now covers
        Egypt through a partnership with Travco Group International, a
        Giza-based full service travel agency with 30 independent
        companies.
    --  In Algeria, EGA partner OK Voyage is one of the top five travel
        companies in the market and serves Egencia customers from its
        headquarters in Algiers.

Latin America In January 2014, Egencia added Uruguay to its countries served 
in Latin America. New EGA partner Montevido-based Viajes y Turismo (VYT) is a 
leading travel agency with over 32 years of experience in the corporate travel 
industry.

Asia Pacific  The latest addition to the EGA network in the Asia Pacific 
region is Orbit Corporate Travel in New Zealand. Orbit Corporate Travel has
