Who We Are

As a family-owned business focused on serving non-profits, Fellowship Travel International offers custom travel solutions at a great value. We love to help others & have a passion for learning more about the world.

We're international in focus & in spirit! More than 20% of our team are foreign nationals or first generation Americans, and we love to travel. In fact, between all of us, we've traveled to more than 150 unique countries.

FTI is an equal opportunity employer & offers a casual office environment, but when it comes to serving our customers, we're all business. We value creating relationships that extend beyond the workplace. We think of our clients as partners & our coworkers as family. Since we're small, every associate matters, to our clients, the company & to each other.

Who We Want

We rely on teamwork to accomplish many of our goals. So, we look for teammates who are self-motivated, collaborative & well-organized. Of course, successful candidates should be personally excited about travel & passionate about helping our clients plan their own trip of a lifetime.

What We Offer

FTI provides competitive salaries & bonuses based on the businesses annual performance. All of our full-time employees receive health insurance, dental reimbursement, IRA matching, & paid time off. In addition to the industry benefits offered by vendors, FTI provides each team member an annual travel stipend, flight vouchers (when available), & three extra vacation days to visit a new international destination. Our team also takes the time to get together for company-sponsored outings, cookouts & celebrations.

A career with FTI may be for you if you like to work in an environment where your contributions are rewarded & a work/life balance is a real thing.

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."

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!"

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."

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."

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."

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!"

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!" :)"

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."
