Classic Vacations Partners with Lomas Travel

by Jessica Montevago

Classic Vacations added Mexican destination management company (DMC) Lomas Travel to its portfolio, effective immediately.

Lomas, which has been offering transfers, excursions, and other services in the Yucatán for nearly 40 years, was previously the primary provider for The Mark Travel Corporation—including FunJet Vacations, Southwest Vacations, and United Vacations. Following Mark Travel’s acquisition by Apple Leisure Group in May, FunJet ended its relationship with the DMC.

“Dolores, Joe, and their team have a tremendously loyal following in the TA community. We are thrilled to announce this partnership with Lomas,” said David Hu, President of Classic Vacations.

Mayaland Tours will continue as Classic Vacations’ primary provider in Mexico.

“Classic’s long relationship with Mayaland has helped as we continue to collaborate on many new offerings. Ultimately, adding Lomas provides another dimension to Classic’s portfolio and allows Travel Advisors to make the choice that works best for them,” said Hu.
