The story of Travco Group International is a story of ongoing growth and success. The Ministry of Tourism has recognized our achievements with the prestigious Number One Travel Company in Egypt award for the past 12 years.
From humble beginnings three decades ago, Travco has grown into a travel, tourism and hospitality empire offering a multitude of facilities and services across Egypt and the Middle East.
Our commitment to service excellence has helped the group build a strong domestic and regional presence, and a far-reaching network of partners.
Targeted business expansion has enabled Travco to attain and maintain its market leader status, but we do not rest on our laurels. The group values and rewards innovation, and is constantly seeking out new opportunities and undeveloped destinations, transforming them into major tourist sites. Adding value to these otherwise overlooked markets has always been a central part of the group’s core strategy, enabling us to successfully pioneer tourism in the Red Sea, the Western Desert, and the North Coast. Our business is built on the quality of our 13,000 highly-trained, multilingual professionals whose unrivalled expertise is central to everything we achieve.
Building on our success in Egypt, where we have achieved in excess of 15% market share and total assets exceeding LE 3 billion and total revenue of L.E. 3.1 billion, Travco now looks toward the region and the world. Our future strategy is to extend the reach of the group’s network of services, and build on our presence in the travel, tourism and hospitality market.
Travco always strives for the highest standards in quality in all aspects of its business, and works hard to achieve profitable growth in new markets.
The headquarters in Sheikh Zayed City, housing more than 1000 professionals, serves as the nerve centre for all Travco Group International’s companies and their operations. The four-storey complex, built on an area of 20,000 square meters, features the latest computing and information technology, contemporary interiors, and a chic exterior that reflects the soul of the company – modern, progressive, forward-thinking, with a keen sense of hospitality.
