History

Boat train at Victoria station - geograph.org.uk - 1129401.jpg

On a conference in early 1975 the member states of the World Organisation for Tourism decided to find a way to encourage people to travel more, boosting tourism. After the civil right movements and with increased wealth, it became more and more common for Young people to make their first steps outside and explore the world. The tourism Departments and state railways of each country sat together and decided to come up with the idea of the WorldTravelPass. It immediately prooved to be hugely successful.
