To become a travel infrastructure provider in the global business society

HTB-BCD Travel’s management philosophy is “In the global society, we will make efforts to create values together with our customers and contribute to the society as a corporate responsibility.” With this philosophy, we are developing our business with the following management vision: “To become a travel infrastructure that is most frequently chosen by customers.”

Amid the rapidly changing world environment, in the innovation-oriented society, problems nagging customers are becoming diversified and complicated, which makes it necessary for the business travel industry to comprehensively handle multiple solutions.

In the face of this reality, we decided to continue to challenge the changes and shift our focus to become a “Business Travel Management Company” that comprehensively provides overseas and domestic business trip support as well as support for incentive trips and overseas and domestic conferences and events.

In April 2011, we became a business partner of BCD Travel, the 3rd largest in the world in terms of scale and network, and in July 2019, we became a part of the BCD Travel group. We provide BTM services to the Japanese business units of the clients that are under the global contract with BCD Travel.

We will try to provide solutions for all aspects of business travels by integrating know-how on business travels that we have accumulated for half a century since the company’s establishment and the global standard services. We will continue to respond to diverse needs of our customers without fail and will contribute to their creation of values as a provider of travel infrastructure. We appreciate your continued support.

Full Compliance

In recent years, there is a strong demand from both the market and society for companies to ensure compliance with laws and regulations and to voluntarily uphold high ethical standards. At HTB-BCD Travel, we strive to develop and strengthen our compliance system, working to ensure compliance and to foster a “corporate culture in pursuit of the high ethical standards”; one that is committed to sound and proper corporate activities, with the aim of becoming a company that is trusted by its customers.

Compliance Promotion System

In an effort to improve and strengthen our compliance system, we have in place compliance officers covering all domestic and overseas operational bases. The compliance status within the group is reported to the representative director and is audited on a regular basis.

Internal Reporting System

To help prevent illegal and/or inappropriate actions, and to quickly detect and rectify any problems, we have established an internal whistleblowing and consultation system. HTB-BCD Travel protects the personal information of whistleblowers, ensures confidentiality of reports, and prohibits any retaliatory actions against whistleblowers.

Tightening of Information Security

We understand the importance of proper storage and management of both customer information and internal information. To provide our customers with safe, reliable and secure service, we continue to strive to maintain the highest level of IT security through vigorous enforcement of internal regulations, and regular and appropriate employee education and training.

Personal Information Protection

Our customers entrust us with a large quantity of personal information. HTB-BCD has established a “Privacy Policy” which allows us to take appropriate actions for the protection of such personal information.
