Adventures with STA Travel 35 Years Young

August 8, 2014 Corporate No Comments Email Email

STA Travel, the world’s largest student and youth travel company, is this month celebrating its 35th birthday by encouraging even more Australians to seek adventure in 2014 and beyond.

To mark this milestone the company will kick off celebrations with a 35 Years of Adventure Sale.

STA Travel was founded by two Australian students in 1976 and originally named ‘Aus Travel’ had humble beginnings helping adventurous students explore a world beyond text books. After three years of success as ‘Aus Travel’ the name evolved and STA Travel’s first store opened at The University of Melbourne in 1979. Today the company employs over 3000 people in 17 countries after it expanded globally in 1990.Adventures with STA Travel 35 Years Young

David Green, Managing Director STA Travel Australia, says he is proud to have been offering millions of traveller’s experiences and adventures across the globe for 35 years.

“For 35 years we have catered for anyone with a passion for travel, not just students but young professionals and the ‘young-at-heart’ traveller. We are overjoyed to be continuing the adventure with Australian travellers and I am thrilled to be leading STA Travel into the future.”

“Thanks to our global buying power, dedicated staff, firm relationships with airlines and land suppliers and our 200 global stores, STA Travel continues to be the go-to travel brand for authentic experiences and adventures around the world. More than 2.5 million people travel with us annually and this is really encouraging for us as we move into an online world where digital booking is becoming more popular,” Green added.

The STA Travel Hub in Melbourne celebrated its 35th birthday along with some of its long-standing employees last night. STA Travel also invites travellers to join in the celebrations and take advantage of the sale with up to 15% off Contiki Europe 2015, $100 off worldwide adventures and many more offers and discounts.
