About Dugan's Travels LLC

Our Beginning:

Dugan’s Travels was founded in 1997 by Jennifer Dugan, an agent who wanted to create an environment where fellow agents could build their own thriving travel businesses outside of the confines of corporate America. Jennifer's vision was for agents to exercise their passion and skill for planning travel while still remaining available to their own families and other commitments. Over 20 years later, her small business goal has blossomed into a successful multi-million dollar enterprise that transforms the hobbyist into a travel professional. 

Our core values are: Family first, grow at your own pace, in business for yourself but not by yourself and keep moving forward.
