Worldwide Presence

Activities on five continents in more than 45 countries

Kuoni’s headquarters are in Zurich in Switzerland, but the company is present all over the world in a variety of different ways. It has offices in its sales markets, some of which function as travel agencies, and offices providing Destination Management services. There are sales offices in the source markets, agency offices that look after guests at the destinations, and offices specialising in MICE business (meetings, incentives, conferences and events).

Kuoni and its brands are active on all continents and in more than 45 countries, from North America to Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia.

In Switzerland, two new Flagship Stores were created in Lausanne and Geneva. Kuoni Italy converted existing travel agencies in Turin, Pavia, La Spezia and Genoa into Kuoni travel agencies.
