Classic Vacations Celebrates 40 Years of Business


San Jose, CA – This year marks 40 years of business for the San Jose-based luxury travel operator Classic Vacations. Since its founding in 1978, the company has grown to represent luxury vacation properties in more than a hundred destinations, around the world: from Hawaii to Europe, from Fiji to Dubai, from the islands of the Caribbean to the Islands of Tahiti. Over the past 40 years, Classic has served Travel Advisors in planning ideal vacations for millions of clients. In doing so, Classic has not only created special vacation memories, but also helped travelers see a world beyond their immediate community.

“We strongly believe that travel brings people together,” remarked David Hu, President of Classic Vacations, “at all times, but especially now when we feel divided. Exploring the world gives us a greater understanding and respect for each other. We can celebrate our differences and discover our similarities; by enriching our lives with travel, exploration, and education, we all grow and benefit together. Celebrate with us as we continue down this journey of making the world a smaller place.”

To celebrate the company’s continued growth, including last year’s announcement of new properties offered throughout Asia, Classic Vacations recently announced its Ruby Challenge for Travel Advisors who receive their monthly Insights e-newsletter and have joined the company’s Facebook group: Advisors can win gift card prizes, by following clues in the email to find ruby icons hidden on Classic’s website. Additional contests, giveaways, and promotions are expected to roll out throughout 2018 in addition to their annual sales promotions and Experience Campaigns for Travel Advisors and their clients.
