Who We Are

Orba Travel Brokers was established on 1 July 1990 with the key goal of becoming a premier boutique Corporate Travel Agency.

Our office is in suburban Como, five minutes from the CBD. We have a highly energised, efficient and meticulous staff who collectively work together to provide a very high standard of service to our Corporate clientele. Additionally, our expanding retail section has its own dedicated consultancy.

WE ARE A PCI DSS COMPLIANT Travel Management Company. This means we have been recognised internationally by one of the world's largest, and most well regarded Data Security Company's, SecurityMetrics, as protecting our clients data, including valuable Credit Card data, in the most secure and protected environment possible. We're committing to quarterly checks by SecurityMetrics to ensure your data is safe.

Trust and transparency are the prime factors in the ongoing relationship that Orba Travel Brokers has enjoyed with many of our customers over the years. We are also firm believers in training and up-skilling and involving our staff in the business. No-one works at Orba Travel Brokers, everyone works with us.

Richard van Kempen

Managing Director

Richard, together with his wife Linda, founded Orba Travel Brokers on July 1, 1990. Richard is a former CPA, is a qualified Teacher and is the Western Australian Council Member for the Helloworld for Business Group. He believes in dealing with our customers in a completely transparent manner, pioneering secure online access for our clients to their own travel data within our mid-office systems. Richard also practices a belief that in business, no-one wins in any relationship unless our suppliers, our customers and Orba Travel Brokers collectively gain from a mutual three way relationship.
