We've been Delivering Sunshine Since 1983

You may think that we sell holidays, but we believe it is our sole purpose to make people happy. This philosophy applies internally to our staff, as well as externally to you, our customers. We want Pentravel to be a place where people want to work, and customers love doing business.

Before earning their stripes as Pentravel Travel Advisors, our recruits have to take the Pentravel Sunshine Pledge. In doing so, they promise never to hard sell, up-sell or do any other kind of sell.
We build relationships based on trust, and aim to create the very best customer experience. We call this “Delivering Sunshine”.

Giving Back | How We Tread Right
How We Tread Right (HWTR) is The Travel Corporation’s (TTC) new five-year sustainability strategy, which sets the mandate on sustainability at Brand X and our sister travel companies.
Our strategy is based on 11 measurable goals developed to address BRAND X’s impact on Planet, People, and Wildlife. These goals, anchored to the United Nations’ Global Goals, address:
Planet – sustainability and conservation by targeting climate change, sustainable food production and responsible consumption through carbon management, renewable energy, the food cycle, waste reduction, and the elimination of single-use plastics.
People – community support and cultural preservation by targeting overtourism through the inclusion of new Make Travel Matter experiences, the creation of a standalone strategy to encourage greater diversity and inclusion at Brand XX, and our global give-back efforts.
Wildlife – conservation and protection by targeting animal welfare and conservation, and ethical wildlife experiences through TreadRight’s Animal Welfare Policy.
