Goway Travel Celebrates 50 Years in the Travel Industry


Entering 2020, Goway Travel celebrates its 50th year of globetrotting.

Goway Travel hits a milestone few travel companies reach in 2020, celebrating its 50th year in business. Still family-owned and operated after half a century, Goway enters the year with over 350 expert staff, offices in Toronto, Vancouver, Los Angeles, Sydney, and Manila, and big plans for celebrating its 50th anniversary.

Started by Australian Bruce Hodge in a small Toronto office in 1970, Goway Travel promoted its earliest trips as ‘fun holidays for the under 30s.’ These were often epic overland journeys that spanned entire continents, from Alaska to Panama, London to Nairobi, and the popular ‘hippie trail’ through to Kathmandu. Goway even embarked on a 3-month journey around South America from Bogota to Rio de Janeiro, though this itinerary got off to a rough start when Goway’s tour bus failed to arrive from London, inadvertently launching Goway’s first epic journey via public transport!

Since then, Goway has grown and evolved with its globetrotters to become an industry leader in long haul travel to destinations across the world, from Iceland to the Islands of Tahiti. Many of these destinations are showcased in Goway’s 50th Anniversary Golden Sale, which begins the celebration with unbeatable deals available until February 29, 2020.

Goway’s destination specialists have also hand-picked Goway’s 50 Trips to Take in 2020. Carefully curated from Goway’s extensive product range, the list contains some of the company’s classic destinations and best-selling itineraries, alongside new favourites and rapidly emerging hot spots sure to spark globetrotting imaginations in 2020.

Later in the year, globetrotters will also have the chance to win one of 50 Goway trips, in what the company believes will be the biggest giveaway in travel industry history.

Find details of Goway Travel’s 50th Anniversary celebrations, including the 50th Anniversary Golden Sale offers, and 50 Trips to Take in 2020 on Goway’s website, http://www.goway.com. Check back throughout the year for new offers, contests, and more as Goway’s 50th Anniversary continues!
