What people say about us:

“The Brighter Group has been trusted with the Jordan brand in the UK for many years. Their close relationship with the UK travel trade has increased the number of tour operators featuring Jordan and our training programme has very much increased both travel agents and tour operator reservations staff’s knowledge of the country.”

His Excellency Senator Akel E. Biltaji, advisor to the King of Jordan

PERFECT! Thank you! I wish you did the PR for all the destinations I cover.
