Our Story

The company was established in the suburban town of Wennappuwa, Sri Lanka, in the year 1999. Having received  IATA accreditation in 2007, the company embarked on a journey with a primary goal of providing reliable and quality travel options to many travelers from within the North Western region of the country. The company soon expanded its presence to other cities and currently have the largest travel branch network in the country. The continuous growth and success of the travel business in Sri Lanka inspired us to take our footprint overseas with the opening of our two offices in Milan and Verona (Italy), office in Melbourne (Australia), followed by the establishment of the newest office in Dubai (UAE) in June 2022.
