TruTravels Benefits

Details Organised

By traveling with TruTravels, they organise all the important stuff, so that you can enjoy more of your holiday. With the local support once you get there, such as an airport pickup, taking care of all the small details, and the local advice and knowledge that will be available to you, you can enjoy more of your trip before, during, and after you’ve traveled with TruTravels. Even if you have onward travel arrangements to make, the crew and your group leader will be able to assist with that too.

Like Minded Travelers

Part of the TruTravels group will be other travelers in the same situation as yourself, so you will have friends from the day the tour starts. As well as the other travelers, the group leaders will become like friends also, with the TruTravels staff always happy to assist with any other travel questions you might have.

Shorter, Convenient Tours

By keeping the tours shorter, it means that you don’t need to go on an unnecessarily long backpacker tour, but with all the convenience and safety of a group tour. Traveling to a foreign country where you may not speak the language or understand the local customs can sometimes be daunting, but TruTravels will allow you the space to explore, while traveling with others and giving you the information you need.

TruTravels Story & History

Back in 2012, TruTravels was started on the idea that life was not about being stuck in the rat race and working boring jobs. Joe Fallon and Mark Pope had “lived the dream” previously, working and traveling throughout Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Europe for several years, and decided that they needed a change. They started TruTravels.

After meeting in a London Pub, they decided that they should change it up a bit, and went to start doing what they really wanted to do; live in paradise. They wanted to show people the time of their lives in paradise, and this became the blueprint for their plan; to provide life changing experiences for backpackers and travelers, by backpackers and travelers. To this day, TruTravels still does this, and continues to provide travelers the opportunity to go on a hassle free holiday, that is still adventurous, and prepares them for any further solo journeys into the future.
