Kuoni Tumlare : Our story
To deliver truly inspiring and innovative solutions and experiences that create value both for our Partners and Society at large.
The value we create for our Partners – Customers, Suppliers, Employees – and Society matters, and has always been at the core of what we do.
To foster connections across cultures in a sustainable and responsible way.
We are and have always been a key driver of cultural, personal, and professional exchange across global communities. We are now taking the next step on our journey with a formal commitment to operate in more responsible and sustainable ways.
We see things from our partner's perspective and are all about building strong relationships – establishing win-win partnerships with our Customers, Suppliers and Employees.
We continually focus on delivering excellence in all we do by striving to exceed expectations, always.
We treat our Partners, the Market and Destinations in which we operate, and Society at large, with respect.
We “never give up” – together we know we can do anything – we always say “How”, never “No”.
We challenge the status quo, promote forward thinking and continuously create new business models to meet the needs of tomorrow.
We create value by going above and beyond to meet the needs of our Partners and Society - knowing that what we do matters and can change lives for the better.

How We Got Here
It started a long time ago, in 1906, when one man, Alfred Kuoni, decided to make it easier for people to travel and founded Kuoni in Switzerland.

A few years later, in 1912, on the other side of the world, another travel company was born: JTB, in Tokyo Japan.
Tumlare is founded in Denmark - experts in Scandinavian, Russia, Baltics, Balkans and Eastern European destinations.
Our founding companies soon entered a journey of expansion and growth, both in terms of global presence and portfolio offering – never stopping to fulfill the needs of the world, always with an inquisitive and innovative spirit.
These different paths came together in 2020 with the launch of Kuoni Tumlare – the result of two strategic acquisitions made by JTB in Europe: Tumlare in 2008 and Kuoni Global Travel Services in 2017.
Kuoni Tumlare becomes stronger with an expanded portfolio of products and solutions creating value for our Partners and the world.
Different cultures are at the heart of who we are – united by an unflinching passion and drive for creating opportunities for connection, a way to live life to the fullest through exploration, curiosity, and a sense of wonder.
To this day, what ties us together is our unwavering conviction that we truly make a difference to people’s lives and change the world for the better.
