We work with you to manage all elements of your travel in an efficient, cost effective and ethical manner.
Reho Travel grew out of an overland luxury bus concept in the UK in the 70’s then transformed into a High Street bucket shop in the 80’s. The company has now evolved into a highly respected purpose driven Australian owned travel management company. Reho Travel is committed to making a difference in the world that its clients travel to, whether on business, on holiday or on a study tour. With offices in Melbourne and Sydney, the company is focused on managing the travel for companies with a travel spend up to $5m.
Reho Travel entered the industry as revolutionaries, from our early days in Covent Garden in the 70’s we pushed boundaries with our heavy discount model. We took this attitude to Australia in the early 80’s, “daring” to advertise discount airfares in interstate newspapers which put many industry noses out of joint. Since then our reputation has turned full circle and we are highly respected by our peers, for our strong values and the quality and longevity of our team. Nowadays we are still considered revolutionaries of sorts but have earned the respect that goes with that. Reho Travel is at the forefront of a handful of travel businesses that are focused on using the power of travel to change the world. We are also highly respected for our creativity and innovation. We are always thinking, improving, disrupting, and not accepting the norm. This freedom of expression is encouraged amongst the team, allowing everyone to be their true self which is reflected in the large percentage of team members who have been with Reho Travel for over a decade. Every aspect of our ground floor head office on St Kilda Road reflects our people, our history, our values, and our creativity. It is a beautiful environment for our team, to work in, feel secure in and enjoy showing off to industry colleagues.
Quality . Trust . Ethical . Creativity . Efficiency . Communication.
Having clearly stated and promoted values within our organisation, by which all team members are held accountable, is the key to our business. These values form the framework within which all major decisions are made and they provide a strong benchmark and sounding board against which any potential disagreement or conflict may ultimately be measured and resolved. The resulting consistency of action and the equitable nature by which decisions are made, means that there is a greater likelihood of the development of a harmonious, high performance team. There is substantial evidence to support the view that a happy team environment of committed and aligned people leads directly to the greater likelihood of outstanding customer service delivery.
Our customer profile has changed significantly in the last 42 years! Our early travellers were looking for the cheapest way to get from Australia to UK and vice versa, it really didn’t matter how long it took to get there.
Slowly they grew more sophisticated, explored further, and moved into business and academia.
Suddenly we were thrust into the corporate and university sectors and their needs changed again. Technology moved to the forefront with the advent of self-booking tools and reporting, which then evolved into a strong focus on duty of care.
Our customers are now looking further ahead, whilst many of university and corporate customers have a shared value strategy that is aligned to a higher purpose, our leisure travellers and students on study tours understand the value we add and are looking to us to help them reduce their footprint.
We recognise that travel can often be a balance of need vs impact.
Given Australian’s need to get on a plane to travel overseas so we recognise that our role is to help them reduce the impact of their travel.

Reho Travel is committed to influencing the entire travel industry to consider the whole supply chain. We would like to see an industry where customers are choosing an airline for its low fuel consumption, a hotel in the developing world for its labour practices, and a tour company that involves the local community, booking them all with a travel agency that has the awareness and experience to guide them toward suppliers that have a positive impact on our world.
By the time Karsten was 10 years old he was involved in a failed attempt to sail to England in a rubber dinghy, he trekked across East Timor, travelled overland from England to Australia and could name 250 airlines.
At 17 he backpacked solo throughout South America, ran out of money in Colombia and returned home to discover that it was possible to make a career out of travel, and he has never looked back, having visited over 100 countries.
His long term goal is to disrupt the entire travel supply chain so that travel agencies, suppliers and clients start to look at travel in a new way. He wants to take the focus off price and instead help Reho’s clients make choices that are good for them, good for others and good for the planet.
At Reho Travel we are committed to providing a professional service to our customers, ensuring they benefit from our experience, unique style and energy. A highly visible, independent and progressive travel agency, we aim to make a difference in everything we do.
