Craig organized Pavlus Travel 25 years ago after a remarkable 26-year career with TWA serving as Senior Vice President of Marketing, President of TWA Getaway Vacations and President of The Travel Channel. A constant innovator, Craig recognized the Internet in its infancy as the vehicle to market last minute travel at discounted prices to clients throughout the world. At times Pavlus’ low prices have been referred to as “insane”. These insane prices continue to attract thousands of new customers from around the world.

By offering full personal service with huge discounted prices on tours and cruises, Craig has been referred to as one of the key architects who introduced discounted pricing competition in the travel business that has benefited millions of consumers.

Pavlus Travel is truly a successful family business story. Simply said, Travel is a bargain if you know where to shop: Pavlus Travel. Craig says, “Compare our vacation package prices, and more importantly compare our service. We make travel dreams come true.”
