Sri Lanka’s leading travel solutions provider, Classic Travel, a subsidiary of Expolanka Holdings Plc, opened a new branch in Munidasa Kumaratunga Mawatha to cater to even more holiday travellers. The new branch will mainly focus on customised holiday tour packages with added value to suit each customer. Classic Travel specialises in providing total travel solutions to both the corporate and leisure markets. Group CEO Hanif Yusoof commended the Classic Travel stating: “I have witnessed the incredible success Classic Travel has achieved and maintained over the years with great pleasure. The company’s dedication to customer service and the ability to find innovative solutions have driven this success story.” Classic Travel made its mark in the Sri Lankan travel industry as a matchless player with the company’s key strength: exceptional customer care and service. The company has raised the industry bar representing global industry leaders such as Star Cruises Singapore, Egencia and MakeMyTrip to offer a wider range of services to customers. Classic Travel CEO Suresh Mendis said: “We are all very excited in starting up this new venture. Although we specialised in Far Eastern and European tours, it was always felt that there were opportunities for us to venture into exclusive custom-made outbound tours for our high-end clientele. This has been an area that we have been a bit shy to explore. Now with the facilities and staff in place at our brand new ‘Classic Vacations’ office, our clients can travel to any place on earth where an aircraft can fly to, be it an Alaskan Cruise, a camping safari in Kenya, the Mardi Gras in Rio, exploring the Amazon rainforest or be daring enough to climb Mount Everest.” While being strategically located in the heart of Colombo with branches in the World Trade Centre, Hambantota, Galle, Ratnapura, Katunayake, Bangladesh and also in the Maldives, Classic Travel is the only travel agent in Sri Lanka to be open 24 hours, 365 days of the year. Travellers can call or walk in anytime to obtain flight information, purchase air tickets, book hotels or discuss their future holiday travel plans.
