Over 50 Years Of History
Pal and Pat Anderson moved their two sons, Van and Brad, to Hawaii and purchased a tour operating company called Hawaiian Paradise Tours in 1969.
Brick and Mortar
In the 1970s, the Andersons moved to San Diego to launch several of their first brick and mortar travel agencies including Palomar Travel Inc., Pal Anderson Travel, and Anderson Travel – growing up to 10 locations at the peak of this family-run business.
The Andersons evolved their business model to sell vacations on a national level by using the internet to connect travelers with specialized travel experts. Unlike most online travel companies, Avoya places personal relationships at the core of its business model.
Independent Travel Experts
As the internet model rapidly expanded, competing travel agencies start closing their doors and the Anderson family begin to shift their focus on "adopting the competition". By 2002, the Andersons redefined the travel industry landscape and become a category of one. As a result, Avoya Travel Co-Presidents, Brad and Van Anderson, are inducted into the CLIA Hall of Fame for the Cruise Innovator Award.
The Andersons established Avoya Travel as one of the world's largest and most innovative travel companies. Our commitment to Integrity and Professionalism™, service, and value in every aspect of planning cruises and vacations, has allowed us to receive numerous accolades, including Best Host Agency five years in a row, and being repeatedly named Travel Partner of the Year by Norwegian Cruise Line, Royal Caribbean, Celebrity Cruises, Carnival Cruises, American Express, Oceania Cruises, and more.
Our 50 Years in Travel
In 2014, the Anderson family celebrated their 50th year since entering the travel industry and Avoya Travel is a three-generation family affair with multiple Andersons on the executive leadership team. An exciting milestone made possible through the passion of the Independent Agencies in the Avoya Network, supplier partners, and employees who are all part of the Avoya family.
Looking To The Future
Today, Avoya Travel stays true to the Anderson legacy of delivering incredible vacation experiences at the very best value for travelers worldwide. The Avoya family continues to reimagine vacation planning with a network of over 1250 Independent Agencies and 170 internal staff members. With the innovative Avoya 2025 roadmap, Avoya looks to the future to become the number one vacation platform - the best is yet to come!
