The quality of one’s travel experience partly depends on the type of service they get from the travel agency they’re working with. If the agency plans and executes its trips efficiently, its clients could have a positively memorable experience. But if the service is shoddy, it could ruin the traveller’s journey.

One thing that prospective tourists will want in a travel and tour company is a broad and deep knowledge of the travel process and the destinations they intend to visit. This sort of knowledge is what firms like Boomtrust Travels and Tours thrive on.

Boomtrust has operated as a travel and tour agency for almost twenty years. That’s more than most companies in this segment can boast of. In that time, they have built a business that provides a diversity of offerings to their clients—from educational and religious tours to leisurely or adventure trips, for individuals and groups.   

From its base in Lagos, the company designs and executes travels to choice locations within Nigeria, elsewhere in West Africa, and across the world. It procures visas, takes care of airline ticketing, reserves hotel accommodation, and provides car rental services.

There are several travel and tour packages available from Boomtrust. They include religious pilgrimages, including to Israel and the city of Mecca in Saudi Arabia; educational tourism and admission services in Africa, Europe, the US, Canada, and Australia; and vacation for clients seeking time-off from home and work.

Destination management services are available too. The company covers excursions and semi-formal engagements, ranging from river cruises, views around mountains and waterfalls, to museums, conferences, and gala dinners. Depending on the nature of the outing, guides are provided to help place the experience within the context of the locality visited.

Boomtrust makes movement around the destination area easier with its car rental service. Clients may either drive the vehicle provided on their own or be chauffeured through the location by a driver who knows the area well. Travellers could be accommodated at a hotel, or in apartments rented through the travel agency.

Apart from its direct involvement in the travel and tour business, Boomtrust also has a travel school, the BMTTA Travel and Tours Academy, which trains young travel and tour professionals. Both ventures are sister organizations to Boomtrust International Investments Limited, an importer of hotelier items and an exporter of agricultural products.

The company says it has processed more than 500 visas and overseen numerous trips and tour experiences. It continues to function in what is a growing space for inbound and outbound tourism.
