About the company

The building of the João de Freitas Martins travel agency in Funchal (Madeira) flies the houseflag of the company (I imagine that a travel agency in Madeira cannot be anything but a shipping company). The flag is also painted on the agency entrance door. The building is located on the Avenida do Mar e das Comunidades Madeirenses.

The concept of a travel agency varies from place to place, but here they tend to work more as booking agencies, reserving tickets here and there, usually within a group of associated companies, than as agencies that actually promote travelling with their own means. This in general, of course… I know nothing of the João de Freitas Martins company.
