about us

We are a wholesale tour operator in Canada, partner of “Grupo Viajes y Representaciones S. L.”, a travel group founded in Spain in 2007, with corporate offices in Madrid, and distribution offices in Spain, the USA, and Canada.
The Special Travel Corporation operates exclusively through registered travel agencies. We have partnered with Softvoyage, a market leader in IT and distribution solutions for the leisure and travel industry, and as of November 2017, our products and services are available in SIREV, and through travel agencies’ websites, facilitating coast-to-coast access to our unique products and services for thousands of Canadians.
Our team has carefully selected and crafted products and services aimed at offering unforgettable experiences; we specialize in selling vacation packages including vacation homes, boutique hotels, and resort accommodations in some of the most popular destinations amongst Canadians. Tailor-made tours with guaranteed departures and no requirements for a minimum number of passengers, seasonal high-end sport training camps in Florida and Panama, and car rentals, are also part of our exclusive portfolio.
We pride ourselves for being the first tour operator in Canada to offer commissions to travel agents on vacation packages including private home accommodation; a true way to experience the local culture; so that Canadians - while enjoying of such unique experience - can book with full confidence, knowing that their travel arrangements are backed by the most prestigious travel agency professionals in the market.

The Special Travel Corporation operates exclusively through registered travel agencies. Our products and services are loaded into SIREV distribution platform, and are accessible to all registered travel agencies to book.
90% of our vacation packages to all areas in Cuba can already be found in SIREV, while new products to Cancun, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Barbados, Central America, and Florida are being processed, and will be ready for booking as they become available through SIREV.
Additional booking options, like land only (hotels and vacation homes), tours, cars, flight + hotel/vacation homes will also become available soon via SIREV.
At The Special Travel Corporation, we bet on building strong partnerships with Travel Agencies; we don’t sell direct, and don’t try to undercut the role that we believe rightfully belongs to the travel agencies.
We have designed a comprehensive commission structure for each type of product we sell; ranging from 8% to 15%. Additional incentives can be negotiated.
We allow either automatic refund of commission at the time of booking, or issue commission cheques right after bookings are fully paid. We are developing an integration with a major Canadian financial institution that will allow us in the coming weeks to automatically submit commission payments to travel agencies, upon registering to our services.
Once a booking is fully paid, the travel agency will receive a link with the edocs, including all services including in the file.
