Founded in Point Pleasant, N.J., in 1959 as Pleasant Travel Service, Pleasant Holidays LLC has grown to become one of the largest privately owned travel companies in the United States. Now located in Westlake Village, Calif., the company originally specialized in vacation packages to Hawaii. Still a top Hawaii tour operator, Pleasant Holidays has expanded its destination and brand portfolio to include the Caribbean; Costa Rica (including guided vacations); Mexico, Tahiti, Fiji and the Cook Islands and U.S. cities, as well as river cruise vacations to Asia and Europe. In 1999, the company was acquired by the Automobile Club of Southern California.
With more than 50 years’ experience working with travel agent partners in the vacation travel industry, Pleasant Holidays includes four brands—Pleasant Holidays, JourneseSM, Pleasant ActivitiesSM and Air by Pleasant®—which have sold more than 10 million vacations. Pleasant Holidays offers FIT and guided vacation packages including air, accommodations, cruises, activities, car rentals, travel protection plan coverage and more. Its Groups Department includes a Wedding Travel Desk, with dedicated agents for destination wedding travel, honeymoons, vow renewals and special occasions.
Pricing for its packages varies depending on destination, accommodation types and season, from under $200 per person for a three-night getaway to Las Vegas with air, to thousands of dollars for a luxury cruise in the South Pacific.
Pleasant Holidays’ commission rates begin at 10 percent, with the highest-volume producers earning 15 percent commission or more. For more information, contact email@example.com. Travel agents can add “service fees” or "planning fees” to any Pleasant Holidays booking to increase commission income.
