Thomas Hogan Travel, the Grand Strands Leader in Travel since 1985!

I’ve been in the travel industry for over 40 years, and each new booking continues to excite me! I love finding new ways of enhancing vacations while making sure my clients get the best experience possible. By always staying up-to-date on the latest industry trends, I provide my clients with unbeatable services and world-class vacations in any destination!

I entered the travel industry by delivering airline tickets on foot, and it’s amazing how far the industry’s come! I then moved onto corporate travel where I helped businesses and individuals set up crucial meetings around the world. I learned how to make even the tightest schedule comfortable, and I continue to utilize these skills when booking for families and leisure vacations.

After 20 years in corporate travel, I began to focus on leisure vacations which I continue to pursue today. I work with a wide range of clients including families, couples, and groups along with trips for special occasions. Whether you’re looking to bring your kids to Disney World for the first time or enjoy a stunning honeymoon in Europe, I will do everything to make your trip unforgettable!

I’ve lived along the East Coast most of my life, but I've always been infatuated by world cultures and wish to explore as many as I can. Some of my favorite places to book and visit include:

  • Spain
  • Hawaii
  • Disney's Parks and Cruises
  • China
  • Australia

I want to make your vacation unique, and I will go the extra mile by helping you discover personalized activities that speak to you. I have booked cooking classes in Europe, hikes in South America, plus individualized special events and excursions. I will customize your itinerary so you have time to enjoy the best of your destination without hesitation.

I take the uncertainty out of booking by navigating through all of the options for you. No one should have to feel overwhelmed when booking a vacation, and I will work with you so you get what you want without stress. I will research everything you need to know about your destination as well so you can be fully prepared. Plus, if you ever wish to change something or have any questions, you can call me at any time for assistance.

Most memorable trip of our 40 years together
From day one when i first called Carol, she was very attentive as to what our needs were. My wife is handy cap and restricted to a scooter to get around. Carol worked hard to find the perfect trip for us that would best accommodate her restrictions. Because of her hard work in investigating for us she put together one of most memorable trips we have had. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and we have booked several more trips with her help.

Viking 14 day Atlantic crossing
Carol has assisted in two of our Viking ocean cruises; the latest one was coordinating travel arrangements with our family members in Ohio. All cruise travel arrangements were perfect! Carol sent us updates by phone & emails from date of booking thru date of travel.
