RTWE was created in 2009 in response to a growing market for complex air itineraries, including round the world flights for gap year students. Over time, a larger market emerged of career breakers and retiree travellers, looking for the trip of a lifetime.
Today, the travel products on offer have expanded to include rail travel, accommodation, cruises and multi-destination sporting packages, although multi-destination air travel is still the backbone of the brand, utilising an extensive knowledge of international and local carriers, routes and hubs.
The brand introduced a pioneering Travel Butler service, a free flight change service for RTWE customers, which recognises the fluid nature of round the world travel. RTWE Adventure Passports also provide a range of adventure tours with flexible dates and Black Market Fares to take advantage of late and limited air deals.
