Who We Are

We specialize in religious, academic missions, sports, humanitarian, and leisure travel.

What We Do

Our team takes a consultative, personal approach when booking travel packages and itineraries for our specialty groups. We prioritize long-term relationships and take the time to get to know each group individually so we can recommend the best value that meets our clients’ specific needs and budget. Our focus is on customizing our clients’ travel itinerary tailored to their groups’ goals. Every year, Mondee Groups has a large amount of repeat and referral clients that prove our commitment to prioritizing the well-being of our travelers. 

We’ve worked with global organizations such as World Learning, a non-profit delivering education programs in more than 150 countries, to organize travel for youth groups on study abroad and exchange programs. Our dedicated and expert team is able to work one-on-one with program coordinators to offer itineraries that best suit their travel requirements while considering factors such as the age of the participants involved, as well as health and safety concerns. 

We help our clients through every step of the process from booking the trip, to creating the itinerary, managing deadlines, and assisting with any travel disruptions that may occur. Our number one goal is the well-being of our travelers, and we work diligently to make sure our clients are happy, healthy, and safe on their trip. 

What Makes Us Different

Our service, price, and long-term global partners in tourism you can trust are what sets up apart. As well as our deeply discounted group airfares, and customized Mondee travel insurance products.
