Semoga berjaya, selamat jalan.
Explanation:
Selamat jalan literally means have a safe trip, but it is more commonly used to simply say "goodbye".

To stress that you want to wish someone a safe trip, sometimes people say "Selamat sampai dan selamat kembali" - may you arrive safely and return safely - but it's quite a mouthful!
