What is it?

The Departure Lounge is an online travel magazine powered by the CT Connections Travel Group of brands – CT Connections (corporate travel), Executive Edge Travel (luxury travel) and Totem Group (conferences, events and incentive travel).

Tapping into the infinite wisdom of more than 120 travel experts throughout our brands and four states, we’re combining our knowledge and resources with travel content experts with vast experience in producing online magazines, videos, podcasts, apps and more. Driven by the CT Connections Travel Group, TDL has a biased focus towards affiliated suppliers and clients. We have a large network and we are dedicated to it.

What We Do

The Departure Lounge’s main objective is to serve up a constant stream of travel news, destination features, insights, hotel and airline reviews, celebrity interviews, and generally all things one would expect from a quality online travel magazine.

Wanting comprehensive coverage of luxury travel in Africa? Our Luxury Travel Muse Yvonne Verstandig, one of the world’s top luxury travel designers, has it covered. Or how about the top 8 lunch venues in London on your next business trip? Seasoned travel writer Scott Podmore dishes up only the best. And how about travel tips and holiday favourites from Australian rock legend Jimmy Barnes or TV presenter and publisher Deborah Hutton? The Departure Lounge will deliver it all and more in the pursuit of great storytelling.

Our Mission

TDL’s mission is to also support all suppliers, partners and customers involved with the CT Connections Travel Group of brands by connecting with powerful messaging to its database of more than 70,000 business and luxury travellers.

The CT Connections Travel Group has a diverse database covering industries that include fashion, sport, mining, pharmaceutical, academia, non-profit, agriculture, building and construction.

Our Difference

We are more than a travel media hub. The Departure Lounge is a distribution channel harnessing the entire CT Connections Travel Group and associated corporate and luxury travellers.

This allows us to have a trusted platform for you to communicate with our network, a win-win situation, as we grow together. As per our group branding, our “connections” are paramount and provide the backbone of any organisation. We shamelessly look after our partners as we would our own family.
