Independent Travel Group’s retail brand italktravel now has 21 stores following recent openings in Doncaster, Glen Waverley and Fountain Gate in Victoria

Another four stores are close to opening in NSW and Victoria, ITG confirmed today.


Celebrating the opening of the 16th italktravel store are (from left) Dimity Course, Bridie Clarke (General Manager italktravel Doncaster) and Flora Bourdopoulos.

ITG remains on track to have 100 stores nationally by the end of 2015.

CEO, Tom Manwaring said the italktravel franchisees’ ability to manage their own marketing across all mediums ranging from website, to print, radio, social media and sponsorships within their local community and within their  fields of expertise, is of significant benefit to the agent and to their customers.

“The italktravel brand has now been in the market for just six months  and is receiving fantastic take up,” he said. “We will be launching more new exciting marketing and product developments at the ITG Business Forum in Hawaii mid November.”

The italktravel stores are in: NSW (Newcastle West, Rutherford, Maitland, The Junction, Belmont, Warners Bay, Hornsby, Hornsby Hunter Street and Castle Hill); WA (North Perth, Narrogin, Rockingham and Hillarys); SA (Mt Barker and Glynde); and VIC (Reservoir, Kensington, Warrnambool, Doncaster, Glen Waverly and Fountain Gate).

The majority of the stores were former outlets of HWT, Jetset or Travelscene.
