What are Destination Services and why they matter

‘Destination Services’ is a term we use in the relocation industry to name the maze of services an individual needs after arrival in their new country. This means a staggering array of services you would take for granted in your home country.

If you’re an expat relocating to the UK, you’ll need a house to rent, an internet connection, a mobile phone, a school for your children, insurance and a bank account, not to mention a visa and a work permit. And all that within a few weeks.

From orientation tours to housing search and even airport transfers, we’re here to make sure your new hires are swiftly, yet thoughtfully settled in.

Discover our full range of Destination Services below.
