About Elan Travel

Elan Travel, formerly Terrace Travel Ltd, was founded in 1975 by George Clark with one office in Terrace, British Columbia and three staff. Today Elan Travel has three offices: Head Office in Terrace and branch offices in Kitimat and Prince Rupert, and now has a staff of fifteen.

Each office has specialists in both vacation and corporate travel. We also operate a series of ultra-inclusive deluxe tours to exotic destinations. Future tours are scheduled for Croatia, China, Spain & Morocco, Bhutan and a Christmas Markets Danube cruise. Past tours have featured Russia, Tanzania & Uganda, the Himalayas, India, Peru & Galapagos, Vietnam/Cambodia/Laos and China.

Without a doubt the key to our success is our staff. We have a number of employees who have been with Elan Travel for over twenty years and the average length of service of all employees is 16.27 years.

Extremely Helpful!

My friend and I have either traveled with Elan Travel or had our trips booked by them for the past 10 years. Although neither one of us live near Terrace, we would not book with anyone else. The service is the best there is. All the staff go above and beyond the call of duty. We could not get the personalize service anywhere else. Thanks for making all our trips the best and stress free. George's planned trips are all A-one.
