Welcome to our world...


Romantic Santorini GreeceWe are not about the cheapest deals in travel, we’re about getting your vacation done right. As your professional Southern Illinois travel agency and travel-planning stress reliever, Thunderbird Travel wants to help you find an affordable family vacation, group excursion or business trip that matches your travel needs with your budget to the destination that works for you. Sometimes, it's hard to know exactly what you want given all the choices and prices out there. We are here to be accessible to you - a real person you can talk to about those questions you have. Finding the perfect adventure or experience, beach getaway, checking off items on your bucket list, family reunion, group trip, romantic holiday, destination wedding, honeymoon, weekend excursion, family get-together, escorted tour, or cruise can be time consuming and complicated with so many choices out there. We offer you personal support before, during and after the sale.


Why should you read or listen to what we have to say? Having served Carbondale, Carterville, Chester, Christopher, Harrisburg, Johnston City, Marion, Murphysboro, West Frankfort and all of Southern Illinois since 1974, our years of experience in making travel arrangements helps you design the perfect trip with helpful insights and practical advice on both domestic and international destinations. We save you time with our extensive knowledge of cruise lines, resorts, airlines and tour operators cutting through the clutter and zero in on the vacation you really want. We can save you money by accessing discounted, limited-time offers and exclusive benefits you may not be able to find on your own. Our goal is to make your trip a dream come true. You’ve worked hard for your money and deserve to get the best deal for it. We work hard to make that happen.


Why should you act now? A price quote we give you includes all the necessary pieces to your trip that we’ve discussed. These prices cannot be guaranteed until a reservation is made and a deposit is put on the booking. Travel rates climb and fall based on demand and availability and as such makes it impossible for us to guarantee a price unless we hold it by making a reservation.


What can we guarantee you? We’re there when you need us. Sometimes, even the perfectly planned dream vacation hits a snag like a missed plane connection, lost luggage or a medical emergency. When you book with us, all you have to do is make a phone call or send email and we will handle it. We have connections to help resolve situations.
