CEO of Classic Travel, Suresh Mendis, spoke of the motives behind this new venture.

We are all very excited in starting up this new venture. Although we specialized 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 embark upon.

Speaking further, Suresh Mendis gave a glimpse of what travellers could expect from Classic Vacations.

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, may it be an Alaskan Cruise, a tented camping safari in Kenya, the Mardigras in Rio, exploring the Amazon Rain forest or be daring enough to do a Mount Everest climb.

Zafrana Nafees of Classic Travel gave an insight into the operations and services of Classic Vacations.

We are able to offer specialized tour packages for the corporate as well as leisure traveler, regardless of whether want to go on a safari, shopping or on honeymoon. We are ready to coordinate with our well-equipped international network of suppliers and local agents in order to provide the best experience for our customers. It should also be noted that we are the preferred sales agent in Sri Lanka for the well known cruise line Star Cruises.

Classic Travel has been a pioneer travel agent in Sri Lanka over the past 20 years since its establishment. The company’s focus has been to provide total travel solutions to the corporate and leisure traveller whilst maintaining superior customer care and service. The new venture of Classic Vacations adds to the set of existing branches of Classic Travel, located in Colombo, Katunayake, Galle, Ratnapura and Hambantota, as well as in Bangladesh and Maldives.

Hanif Yusoof, Group CEO of Expolanka Holdings, highlighted the competencies that have helped Classic Travel reach this landmark.

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.
