About Blue Travel
Blue Travel Pty Ltd started life in the early 1980’s as a suburban travel agency selling airline tickets & outbound tours packages. The current management purchased the business in 1992 and expanded to procure inbound tour groups from South East Asia. In 1997 the company acquired a Japanese Inbound Tour company and a year later acquired a retail outlet selling daily local tours and it came with a school placement agency. Business expanded exponentially from 1998 to 2004 as fulltime staff members grew from 3 to over 20. With the onset of Perth’s mining boom from about 2005, the business endured headwinds.
Today, Blue Travel is an Inbound Tour Operator (ITO) specialising in promoting Perth and Western Australia. We have linkages with many Eastern States based operators in order to service our clients on a national basis.
Our Perth office has three divisions;
South East Asian market covers Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia all other ASEAN countries. We have a sales office in Kuala Lumpur to service the smaller travel agents outside the capital. We have staff members from Singapore, Indonesia and Malaysian Muslim.
North Asia market which covers Hong Kong, Taiwan & China. This team is staff by Chinese nationals with intimate knowledge of the Chinese business culture.
Our Japan division solely concentrates on servicing Japanese nationals. We are the main contractor in Perth for many large Japanese wholesalers. We also deal directly with travel agents all over S.E. Asia specializing in the expatriate Japanese market.
