It’s how you travel

As an independent agency, Civic Travel offers comprehensive and tailored travel solutions. We understand that everyone likes to explore the world in their own special way, so we have gathered a global toolkit with just the right “how” for you.

A little about us

Civic Travel is one of Canberra’s longest standing agencies with over 30 years’ experience in business and leisure travel and is positioned for future growth.

We strive to implement technology for efficiency while also being committed to good old-fashioned service principals. Our client-friends appreciate being able to leave all the organising to our experienced team, especially once they understand how much time and effort it saves them, for generally the same cost or better.

We handle most things travel related such as cruises, organised tours, independent arrangements, special interest groups, accommodation and airfares.

Civic Travel is IATA and AFTA accredited which stands for security for you. Being a self-ticketing office allows us control of the airline ticketing process. This matters when it comes to airline changes where tickets require amendments or reissues, regardless of where you are in the world.
