How We Got Here

1906

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.

1912

​A few years later, in 1912, on the other side of the world, another travel company was born: JTB, in Tokyo Japan.

1972

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. ​

2020

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.

2022

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.
