When planning any travel club program it is important to partner with a tour company that exemplifies the professionalism and excellent customer service your organization is known for. At Star Destinations we understand the unique needs of travel clubs, from banks to senior centers, and offer personalized service to help you customize a group tour that meets your travelers’ interests and price point.

Our outstanding staff will provide you with every opportunity to be as involved as you want in the design of your tour. We get you started and give you the opportunity to add, subtract or focus on a specific component of your tour. It is our belief that no two groups are alike, so no two tours should be alike. With this in mind, you are able to make your trip as unique as your group, working with the same designers and operations staff from beginning to end.
