Our History

Maritime Travel belongs to the Stucken Group which specialises in travel, textiles, motor businesses, and international trade. The travel business was founded in 1973 and has steadily grown over the years. It started out with a single office in North End, Port Elizabeth, and in the early days supporting much of the executive travel needs of the local textile industry. We are primarily a family oriented business and the associated feeling of personalised service is evident in how we approach our clients. We believe very strongly in keeping in touch with on-going industry change by leveraging and implementing relevant travel technology to achieve the highest levels of efficiencies, professionalism and service.
