Our History

Bay Travel & Cruise is Founded

Carol Evans initiates the opening of Bay Travel & Cruise in a very humble office in Mentone (take your brollie to go to the outside bathroom!) when tickets were issued on a special printer in the office, with a big safe to lock away all the airline plates each night. Carol and Maria attract a devoted clientbase very quickly, as they are dedicated to offering a reliable, trusted and professional service.


Great Success

Bay Travel now has a strong, fashionable travel business and an expanded professional consulting team. Bay Travel moves to larger premises in Mentone and are winning industry awards each year for their exceptional service to their clients.


On The Move

The Bay Travel team moves to 338 Balcombe Road Beaumaris to continue servicing and nurturing their clients.  Bay Travel survives all the global challenges and continues to be recognised as an industry leader.


New Owners

Carol and Maria start to work with Kurt and Kathryn Sari, Verve Travel and Leisure owners, to allow Carol to transition to her retirement.  This is a perfect match as our values are intertwined – respect, kindness, humour and passion are key and common. Verve Travel and Leisure are the new owners.

February 2023

Carol retires and Gary joins the team!

Bay Travel farewells Carol Evans, an amazing travel industry faithful. Carol and Alan embark on a series of well-deserved overseas trips to mark Carol’s retirement. Gary Seignior, owner of Hampton Travel and Cruise, merges his business and commences as the Travel Agency Manager for Bay Travel & Cruise.
