The Beginning

Although the company has existed since 1865 as an international transport firm, Bucher & Company Inc. as a travel agency was founded in 1932. It has survived the years of depression and two world wars. In the early twenties, the late Mr. Othon Rast joined the company as an employee, worked his way up, and gradually bought shares. In 1963 he became the major share-holder and the company, now known as Bucher Travel Inc., and the firm was taken over by the Rast family. His son, Mr. Harold U. Rast, managed the firm for over 40 years until August 2001 and remained president of the administrative board until June 2006. Since the retirement of the president  the company was managed by the two share holders Mr. Werner Weber and Mr. Mario Wuersch. After the retirement of Mr. Werner Weber in 2009 , the company is lead by Mario Wuersch.

 In March 2017, the long-standing partner and shareholder Werner Weber retired from the company. Mario Würsch, President of the Board and majority shareholder, was able to gain Fredi Daumüller as the new partner with 25 percent stocks. Fredi Daumüller brings along decades of know-how and experience in Hospitality and Tourism Management. He was successfully elected amongst others as Deputy Director for over 30 years at the Grand Victoria Jungfrau Hotel & Spa in Interlaken.

 

The old Days

Bucher Travel Inc. has experienced the various stages of development in travel business. There were the years of immigration from all over Europe to the United States and other overseas countries. Bucher Travel Inc. handled their visas and steamship passages. In the days when travel was still something for wealthy people only, Bucher Travel Inc. already owned a large fleet of private cars with English speaking drivers.

Today

Times have changed and Bucher Travel Inc. has kept up with the pace of travel development. The company employs about 30 people counting office personnel and drivers within the various devisions such as bucherreisen, bucherbus, bucherevents and bucherincoming.  Bucher Travel Inc. is the only Virtuoso-On Site and the only Destination Management Company in Switzerland with their own fleet of modern deluxe air-conditioned coaches, minubusses, sedan, SUV and Minivans.
