Effective as of Oct. 4, 2021, USTOA active member Travelopia USA has announced that they will now operate the Exodus Travels brand in the U.S., which will replace the International Expeditions and Zegrahm Expeditions brands.

Bookings previously made under these two brands will now be operated under the Exodus Travels brand, with the office remaining in Seattle, WA. All existing bookings will still be delivered as per the customer’s original contract with the same product and same itinerary. 

All customer deposits and payments collected by International Expeditions and Zegrahm Expeditions brands remain covered under Travelopia USA’s $1 million security for the USTOA $1 Million Travelers Assistance Program until the customer has traveled or been refunded.

“We are very much looking forward to continuing our association with USTOA in the United States, now with the Exodus Travels brand,” said Sam Seward, president of Adventure Travel at Travelopia, in a press release statement.  “Throughout the 47-year history of Exodus Travels, we have taken great pride in both supporting the tourism community and upholding the integrity of the travel industry. We value working with USTOA, and our membership acts as an independent seal of approval, demonstrating our dedication to conduct activities ethically and to the highest professional standards.” 

“Travelopia USA has been a valued active member of USTOA since 2006 and we look forward to working with the company for many years to come,” added Terry Dale, USTOA president & CEO, in a press release statement.
