Superlink Travels (Pvt) Ltd became the expressive outlet for Rodney’s thinking. As its Chairman/Managing Director, he became the first ever to establish and forge ahead with meeting the challenges of organizing pilgrimages and package tours in such a wide and varied fashion with destinations around the globe, which he has met with tremendous and overwhelming success.
In brief, he commenced outbound tour operations in 1983 to give the golden opportunity to our very own Sri Lankans for traveling, sightseeing, gaining a wide expansion of knowledge, the state of-the art technology and a wealth of experiences of the outside world, in the form of ‘Pilgrimages’ and ‘Package’ tours. These tours were scheduled and arranged so meticulously with personalized services and the best of attention to a clientele that came to describe Rodney Koelmeyer and synonymously his Company as the ‘Best in the World’ for such organized tours. Reaching a target of moving over thousands of Pilgrims/Holiday Makers and an even higher percentage of clients on pilgrimages and package tours in a short period of time was encouraging.
With perseverance Superlink Travels became a household name with publicity given by the clientele themselves for services ‘par-excellence’. Sri Lankans and other nationalities came to Rodney Koelmeyer at Superlink Travels in their numbers to travel as well as join Pilgrimages and Package Tours with a choice of destinations.
Very proudly Rodney Koelmeyer earned the title of being the first and only Travel Personality to win the Gold Award at the Entrepreneur of the year in 1997 conducted by the Federation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry of Sri Lanka (FCCISL)
