Our Background

Experience, success, and worldwide growth.

The Antwerp branch was founded in 1946 as Herfurth Travel, the first IATA agency in Belgium, a 100 percent daughter of the Herfurth Transport Group, now one of the largest shipping companies in Antwerp, with branches in 6 countries. Herfurth Travel specialised in business and through its roots also in Marine Travel, offers a 24 hour service, flexibility and expertise to its customers.

Established in 1979 as a division of Best AND Osterrieth Bando Travel Service was included in the taking over of Best and Osterrieth by the Herfurth Group. Since September 1994 Bando Travel Service is owned by Cetraco (Herfurth Group) and Veerle Denaux who revitalised the company and moved it to the Brussels Airport, the heart of business travel.

The strength of both teams is the personal approach of customers. Agreements with all major airlines, hotel chains and car rental companies enable us to give the best price / quality deal. We listen to your specific needs. Independent. Ready to look for the appropriate solution. With a state-of-the-art service. Highly qualified staff, who have accumulated many years of experience are able to find the best answer to your requirements.

Our strength is our flexibility, our understanding of the customers, our knowledge of the business and our personality. And that is the way how we now occupy a leading position in the business travel world.

In 2005 we decided to bring in all travel activities of Bando Travel Service into Herfurth Travel in order to strengthen our position. Backed by a large European transport group, we are maintaining our independence in the travel business, which ensures the widest choice, with regard to flights, hotels or rental cars.

Today we also are part of the growing global force in strategic corporate travel: FCM Travel Solutions. A worldwide team of market leaders delivering exceptional service, high-value solutions and measurable cost compression.
