By: Safe Harbors Travel Group, Inc.
Safe Harbors Travel Group’s growth and expansion has included multiple acquisitions including Weco Travel in Columbia, Maryland in 2001 and establishment of its Humanitarian Travel division in 2008.
During Safe Harbors’ history in the travel industry, it has experienced extensive changes in airline travel and compensation policies, the September 11 attacks on the United States, the First Gulf War and the development and widespread use of Internet technology, for travel, by consumers and corporations.
“Perhaps our greatest challenge over these past 30 years was the advent and adoption of the Internet for travel by individual and corporate consumers.” stated Safe Harbors Travel Group President/CEO Jay Ellenby. “The Internet made arranging travel technically possible in most cases, so the travel industry had to aggressively prove its relevance. Those of us who established ourselves as critical to the process through our experience, connections, buying power and service thrived after the dust settled.”
Safe Harbors Travel Group, Inc. is a member of Travel Leaders and a branch of the Tzell Travel Group, with over $20 billion in annual travel revenue. Jay Ellenby currently serves on multiple executive and advisory boards including as national treasurer for the American Society of Travel Agents (ASTA) and as treasurer for the Harford County Chamber of Commerce. Safe Harbors strictly adheres to Duty of Care travel risk management to help protect its clients traveling nationally and overseas. Safe Harbors Travel Group is located at 126 S. Main Street, Bel Air, Maryland 21014. www.SafeHarbors.com
