Since our establishment in 1986, Athlone Travel has grown to be one of Victoria’s leading Travel Agencies. In September 2010 we became a Carlson Wagonlit Affiliate in order to serve you better. We are a full service travel agency, dealing with leisure and corporate travel, as well as groups.
Through experienced staff and key memberships to various travel organizations, we are able to provide the best service and value for your travel dollar. Being independently owned and operated, we are able to choose associations that best serve our clients. As a member of Carlson Wagonlit Associate Program, Athlone Travel gains the buying power of a large chain without sacrificing our individuality. We have memberships to several recognized and respected travel and business organizations including IATA, CLIA, and the Better Business Bureau of Victoria, BC.
Whether you are a student, a parent, a senior; whether you are older or younger, male or female, at Athlone Travel you will find an agent who you really like and can relate to. It’s like finding a doctor or a hair dresser, once you find the agent you like and trust, you will never want to lose their expertise and friendship.
Our costs are low and we encourage you to browse the Internet and especially our Home Page and “Our Tours” section before you come in and talk. We then guide you on making the best decision around your particular needs.
And don’t forget, when you set off on your journey, we will always be at the end of the telephone line. Even should things go wrong, and you become stranded in London or Newark Airport, you can call 250-598-5252 and you will have your team standing by ready to assist, as you watch your fellow passengers scrambling for unavailable help.
“….. I recall the flight being cancelled due to weather at the very last minute. Passengers were all in panic trying to get to the airport desks. I casually stepped back, called Kara at Athlone Travel on my mobile. Within minutes I was rebooked and confirmed on an alternate flight via Seattle”.
