Better travel management.

Bytown Travel is a 100% Canadian-owned, full-service travel management company, providing superior service to Ottawa and Gatineau companies large and small since 1975.

Our knowledge and commitment to excellence deliver a better travel management experience.


We consider ourselves a professional consulting firm specializing in travel management services rather than simply a travel agency.
This mindset gives us an edge in providing our corporate clients with services and products of the highest quality and value.

We define value by excelling at negotiating the most attractive prices and employing the latest technologies to provide travel solutions that serve each client's unique needs. We define quality by the honest and trusting relationships we cultivate with every person we are fortunate to serve.

The ability to secure bottom-line fares and rates, the application of powerful online travel tools, and a commitment to service excellence in travel management is how Bytown Travel is leading the evolution of business travel.
