About Us

With a keen desire to help travellers everywhere make the most of their adventures, The Wise Traveller has been paving the way for smarter, safer, and ultimately more fulfilling travel experiences since its inception in 2011

With deep ties to the corporate world, The Wise Traveller founders Richard Batka and Henrik Sundhed knew they both wanted something more out of life than fancy offices and days spent helping build the dreams of others while theirs sat sullenly on a shelf. Naturally, with a pre-existing love of travel and this realisation firmly in place, it wasn’t long until Batka and Sundhed decided to turn their shared passion into their day job as they began consulting with travel and finance clients.

After much collaboration, some ups and downs, and plenty of trials and tribulations, The Wise Traveller was at last born! Offering members a one-of-a-kind subscription designed for travellers by travellers, Batka and Sundhed have been able to successfully negotiate what they refer to as a “bundle of products and services” that serve as a benchmark for quality and value for their loyal members.

And when asked what makes The Wise Traveller such an asset to travellers, Batka had this to say:

“At the end of the day, we’re here to help our members make the most of their travels by sourcing for them the best products, deals, and providing all that we know and have learned along the way. It is through these efforts that we hope to instil in them the love we have for experiencing new places, cultures, and experiences so that every trip they take can be nothing less than absolutely life-changing and unforgettable.”
