About Us

VoyageTrek is on a mission to connect exceptional travel companies with extraordinary travelers, online.

Inquiry Referral Advertising Program

Our team of digital marketing specialists, who also have a passion for travel, developed proprietary media properties specifically to connect Premium Travel Companies with high-intent, discerning travelers who are in the midst of planning their next vacation.

We don’t cast our net over the entire internet travel market. Our exclusive focus is high end travel. Our proven online campaigns utilize the precise combination of search keywords, text and display ads and social media that capture the discerning traveler’s attention, right when they’re actively looking to book a trip.

Travel Companies can acquire new customers via high-quality leads sent right to their email. For more information on our Editor’s Spotlight program, see

Free Directory Search Service

Travelers can search by activity and / or destination for travel companies who offer guided single and multi-day vacations with listings information compiled by our editors and through direct submissions from travel companies, which are then reviewed by our editors. We believe we have the largest directory of tour operators and specialty vacation companies in the world.
