This is why we are different from the others, who just cannot compete with our Complete Tourist Offer, and this is why our clients have trust in us.

The history of DANEX UMAG begins in the year 1990, with a small group of professional and ambitious people, each with minimum 25 years of work in Tourism, Trade and Finance. They all have agreed, that the time had come for them to put their heads together, and to unite their experience and expertize, in order to find their place on the World's market. The only direction they were planning to go was UP.

Very soon, their efforts and hard work have produced significant results and DANEX UMAG established itself as a very reputable tour operator. The corporate philosophy, comprising High Quality Offers and Service, together with the Most Favourable Prices was clearly pointed out, so that the company has been continuously chosen by an increasing number of clients, including individuals, groups and travel agencies from 25 European countries, with a little accent on Germany, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, Czech Republic and Hungary.

As, in the meantime, the Slovenian market has become very interesting, in the year 1992 DANEX UMAG opened a Branch Office in Portoroz (Slovenia). In the period between the years 1993 and 1996, a considerable number of Slovenian travel agencies have decided to organize the accommodation for their tourists through DANEX UMAG, as we were the first and only tour operator to assume Full Responsibility for the tourist services offered and our client's satisfaction, including the Money Back Guarantee.
