PURE LUXURY

Our Motto is
“Serious about Service”
and we mean it.

The 1980’s saw a major shift in the travel industry with the mass advent of computerised and integrated booking systems. Already keen travellers, the founders of Astral Travel sought to meet the needs of travellers that they felt were not being met by mainstream agencies, and founded Astral Travel in 1985 in New York City.

Carving a niche within the African and Caribbean communities, Astral Travel grew steadily and became one of the top agencies in the Greater New York area offering flights, cruises, airline charters and tours to these destinations, for both business and leisure customers.

As well as several New York based offices, Astral Travel’s growth included an office in the founders’ birthplace of Grenada.  In recent years, as the industry became increasingly web-based and the founders’ repatriated to Grenada, the New York offices were closed and the head office relocated to Grenada, where the business continues to thrive.  In addition to the existing services offered for flights, cruises, hotels and car rentals, the agency is developing their tour business, focusing on the existing market within Grenada as well as developing tours throughout the Caribbean and to popular worldwide destinations.
