Products & Services
With Mevo Travels you can book a completely arranged trip to the world famous Trans-Siberian Express. The railway line runs from St. Petersburg and crosses through Moscow to Beijing or Vladivostok. Booking a trip goes beyond ordering a train ticket. In addition to all travel documents such as visas, the customer is also informed about the country prior to departure. A train journey has many stations and stopovers that can be utilised for an excursion to nearby attractions.
Furthermore, Mevo also provides trips to countries located on the Silk Route. Or a special trip to Kiev in combination with a visit to the surrealistic Chernobyl, with its abandoned villages and cities.
The target group for these trips is diverse, among which backpackers with a job and no kids as well as those aged 50 and over prevail.
Mevo Travels focuses on the Dutch market and it wasn’t long before Belgium was added to the list. Agencies with European travel organisations have been signed under contract since 2015. These European organisations sell Mevo Travels under their own name, which has led to a substantial growth in customers.
Mevo Travels wants to achieve further growth. The short-term goal is to realise a milestone revenue of 1 million euros. Growth potential within Europe is possible through the German market. Expansion of the range of travel offerings in Central Asian countries is also on the agenda.
Belgium, France and Scandinavia, occasionally Poland and United Kingdom.
