About

Ellison Travel & Tours is a full service travel agency/tour operator providing dedicated customer service for a wide variety of travel needs.  We are a 100% Canadian owned and operated travel company in business for 40+ years with 80+ staff across Canada and 3 physical office locations including Exeter and London, ON and North Vancouver, BC. Our 4 divisions: Adult Groups (including Ellison-exclusive escorted tour divisions), Student Groups, Vacations & Cruises and Business Travel, work together sharing knowledge and experience, and our travel advisors are experts in any 1 or more of these business areas.

As the world re-opens for travel, Ellison Travel is committed to the safety and well-being of our clients.  As a member of the Tourism Industry Association of Ontario (TIAO) and supporter of the World Travel & Tourism Council’s #SafeTravels protocols, as well as the first Canadian accredited Certified Student Travel Operator (CSTO) through the Student Youth Travel Association (SYTA), we are committed to safe and responsible travel. This is reflected in our reputation of excellence in risk management and duty of care for our clients. In addition, through our value of stewardship, we strive to be socially and environmentally conscious and pro-active, giving back to our local communities and causes close to our heart. Our goal is opening minds and hearts through travel – our mission, to provide a seamless travel experience at great value for our clients, while investing in continuous growth of our people and processes.

Ellison Travel & Tours has experience buying smaller agencies, and also welcoming other businesses to operate under our TICO license and administration, while maintaining their own original branding and brand management, operating as a division of Ellison Travel & Tours. We are open to a variety of business partnership or acquisition models, including letting previous ownership stay involved to a degree they are comfortable with. In addition to the suite of tools and programs offered by TLN, we have our own in-house accounting team, in-house marketing team, in-house airline ticketing team and also an IT/product development team which has developed a group management software that is exclusive to Ellison agents and divisions. We fully welcome the opportunity to discuss with you and brainstorm how our agencies can work together for a mutually beneficial outcome. Please contact us for more information.
