Group Travel Planning Made Simple & Easy
As a group leader your job is to focus on your team, on your mission, and on your own things in life. Planning a group mission trip can be an overwhelming task, especially if you already have little time to give. Our role is to take away all the stress and hassle of worrying about booking your group mission trip. In today’s world booking a group mission trip has become more complicated. Airline mergers have caused prices to rise, and no one from the airline cares for the customer’s well-being. Costs have risen and it’s hard to know whether you are getting the best deal or not. That is where we come in! Our process is simple; give us a call with the details of your request and we’ll take it over from there. From the minute you send us a request, to the moment your team touches back on ground after your trip, we help walk with you every step of the way. Our hope is to build a great partnership with you and find out what we can do to help make your mission trip as simple as possible.

From there we look at everything from an eagle eye perspective and compare the fares and flight schedules. Then using our analytical skills and travel knowledge we discuss with you the best possible option for your group travel.

Extra Group Perks and Advantages
Our main goal as a group travel agency is to support you and your mission. Not only do we work our very hardest to book your group, but we also try to add additional great perks to your group as well. With the group rates, you are able to put down a deposit on seats without paying for the entire trip. That is great for groups that want to go on a mission trip, but don’t have the funds available immediately. The group rate allows you to spend time fundraising and gathering support for the mission trip. Another great advantage is the ability to add or drop seats even after you book your group space. With so many things going on in our lives on a daily basis, plans can change easily. People who did not want to join your mission trip may ask to join later, and those who committed may need to drop. With the group travel rates, you are able to utilize that service without losing the money you’ve been stewarded with. The other amazing group perk is that we handle all of your ticketing and seats! It can be such an overwhelming task to worry about making sure tickets are correct, and then also making sure your group can sit together on your flights. We take that stress away by handling every aspect of group travel, including seats. Your experience with us comes with many more group perks and advantages.
