We do this because we love it
We created the company because we needed it as travelers ourselves. We searched for a travel agency that had a deep rolodex of local partners around the world with access to the most up-to-date information, fair pricing, and on-the-ground coverage. We founded For Business or Pleasure Travel in 2014 and re-branded as the BP Travel Club in 2019. The club reflects what we have become—a niche group of super travelers that with our guidance go to the furthest corners of the globe, engage in unique activities and experiences and have a sophisticated and discerning eye for luxury and service. Our model artfully produces tailored trips that are individual, rather than a one-size fits most model. Each trip is a custom design, as a collaboration between our company, the travelers and the respective local partners to create unique journeys.
