Established as a single storefront travel agency in 1972, Phil and Louise Emrich ventured into the world of travel by opening Your Travel Center. Together they turned that dream into a reality, creating a full service travel agency and that grew into 15 locations serving the California Central Coast. Since then and without wavering in their loyalty to their employees, independent travel consultants or travelers, Your Travel Center has blossomed into a full scale agency with sales of 150 million dollars.
"Our business is to turn your dreams to reality"
Current owner, Colin Weatherhead, joined Your Travel Center in 1987 and officially purchased the agency from Phil & Louise Emrich in 1995. By embracing technology and accepting the changing landscape of travel during the early '90's, Your Travel Center has not only remained relevant, but has prospered under Colin’s leadership with sales growing from 20 million to 150 million.
As one of the principal upscale travel companies in the United States, Your Travel Center has provided clients with extraordinary travel experiences for over 45 years. And as a member of Virtuoso, the world's oldest and most prestigious leisure travel association, Your Travel Center agents and independent contractors have access to some of the world's most elite travel companies. It is our people, our connections and our leadership that set us apart from the rest and make us the agency of choice for the leisure, luxury leisure, or corporate travel consultants or agencies.
