Customer Testimonials


Fellowship Travel has been a blessing to our church. It was because of our agent's help that 60 people traveled safely. And, not only the 60, but many people in Cartagena were blessed by God. My heart is forever grateful, and I look forward to working with FTI again in the near future."

Debbie
Group Leader
Boca Raton, FL


My FTI agent is the best! She goes beyond the call of duty to make things happen. When we had a problem, she was available and willing to help in any way. We saw over 2,000 patients!"

Denny
Team Leader
Hattiesburg, MS


As a director of a cultural exchange program, I would strongly recommend that anyone in a similar position use FTI's services. For our program, we have had back-to-back challenges. Yes we have large groups, and yes we go to remote locations, so when something goes wrong, the challenge is huge."

Ed
Cultural Exchange Director
Nashville, IN


My agent was INCREDIBLE. I have travelled quite a lot & never have I had the kindness, the understanding, the patience that my agent showed. Customer service is more than a word with her."

Jeanne
Skillman, NJ


Everyone I worked with was very professional, helpful, & quick to respond to emails & phone calls. I would absolutely use Fellowship Travel for future mission trips."

Kiley
Group Leader
St. Louis, MO


I am very impressed with the level of personal service, care, concern, and commitment that was displayed. I was especially impressed with my agent's ability to get me back on my original flight when I heard a classmate, who was extending with me (and added her deviation after me), was unable to get on that earlier flight. NICE WORK!!! The next time I travel internationally, Fellowship Travel is the first agency I will speak with!"

Joshua
LaMiranda, CA


I'd like to give a big shout out to my agent for being so great to work with!! When you see her, please tell her I said, "YOU ROCK!" :)"

Stephany
Irving, TX


I am appreciative of the individualized service my agent provided me prior to the purchase of my ticket. Numerous emails went back and forth in which I asked a lot of questions. Despite, I'm sure, a busy schedule, my agent patiently answered all my queries."
