About Us

Our story…

In 1995 Linda Benwell (now Managing Director) was approached by a travel company to open a Cape Town branch. She was later joined by Nicole Nielsen and Grace Ruivo and so the dynamic trio was born.

As a women-owned business, these ladies made the conscious decision to not only run a business with determination and passion, but more importantly, to run a business that focuses on employing and empowering women!

As the business grew, so did the team. And as we all know, with growth, comes change…including name changes and over the next few years, the company went from Millennium Travel to Sure Millennium Travel and after joining the XL Travel Group, became XL Millennium Travel.

With more than 20 years of working together, the dynamic trio, that is Linda, Nicole and Grace have turned the company they once worked for, into a family-friendly, socially responsible, successfully run partnership, co-owned with others.

They get up every morning, not just to come to work, but to inspire, to develop, to lead, to nurture their team of passionate, skilled and driven travel agents, conference coordinators and administrators that are not just their staff, but their team…their family.
