Black-Owned 'Travel Divas' Creates Travel Events Around The World
This year may feel like a wash when it comes to travel, but 2021 looks like the year when everyone will be packing their bags and making up for lost time. The Travel Divas want to help you plan your next group getaway. The award-winning and premier travel company specializes in group travel management and creates 25+ travel events both domestically and internationally each year.
“Travel Divas manages every concept of the travel experience. From carefully selecting the accommodations to managing traveler’s reservations, taking secure online payments, creating the itinerary, and preparing attendees for travel, we guarantee, you are in the best of hands,” reads a statement on the company’s website.
Within the company’s 12-year history, the Travel Divas team has planned more than 290 events in more than 21 countries and hosted over 11,000 travelers.
The company was founded by Shanterria Earley out of South Atlanta. Over a decade ago, she left a well-paying and gratifying professional job to pursue her dream of creating a travel company that would form a global sisterhood focused on sharing the love of travel. Travel Divas’ events are open to everyone, but 95 percent of all attendees are Black women from the United States.
Apart from helping Black women travel to exotic countries, she also offers mentorship programs to travel agents who are ready to make their agencies top earners.
“Our mission at Travel Divas is to offer destinations and travel events that many women in our community would not imagine traveling to on their own,” reads the company’s mission on their website. “We want women who travel with Travel Divas to always thoroughly love our adventures and often return to check another destination off their bucket list.”
