HRG

Founded in 1993, leading travel agency, HRG Czech Republic (Hogg Robinson s.r.o.), has steadily built an excellent reputation as one of the most established providers of corporate travel. Part of international corporate services business Hogg Robinson Group (HRG), the company has branches in more than 120 countries all over the world, directly owned or within partner bureaux.

We offer a variety of tools to help businesses best manage their travel. Our “Business Trip Management” programme enables you to watch, optimise and control your travel expenses throughout the whole process from booking tickets, accommodation or car rentals through to managing the more bureaucratic end of things, such as visas. And we also offer an entire function dedicated to “Meetings, Groups & Events” to help you organise and manage incentive trips, conferences, congresses, events, business meetings and social corporate events. Shortly we’ll also be adding sports and fun corporate events, both domestic and international, to our already extensive service.
