Lomas Travel, a destination management company located in the Mexican Caribbean, has announced a partnership with Classic Vacations to become a part of their portfolio and provide destination services throughout the Mexican Caribbean, Cozumel and the Yucatan Peninsula.
Lomas Travel was previously the primary provider for The Mark Travel Corporation (TMTC), including FunJet Vacations, Southwest Vacations and United Vacations, before Mark Travel’s acquisition by Apple Leisure Group. At that time, FunJet discontinued its 30-year relationship with Lomas Travel.
A family-owned and operated business, Lomas Travel has been offering transfers, excursions, and other destination management services in Mexico for more than 38 years.
In mid-May, the owners of Lomas Travel sent a letter to their travel partners informing them that Funjet Vacations planned to change its ground services after about 30 years of working with Lomas.
“Lomas Travel has been notified that due to its merger, Funjet will change its ground services to a different Destination Management Company (DMC) effective June 13,” according to the letter. “We know this decision is not a reflection of our longstanding relationship or the outstanding service we’ve been committed to providing our partners and clients over the past three decades."
In April, ALG and TMTC announced that both companies had signed a definitive agreement “to create an integrated leisure travel and technology solutions company,” according to a news release by both companies. Financial terms of the private transaction were not disclosed. The transaction officially closed on May 1.
