Largay Travel was founded in 1969 by Roland F. Largay. Paul Largay, Roland’s nephew, joined the organization in 1982. Together they have traveled the world and built one of New England’s premier travel management organizations. Largay Travel, headquartered in Waterbury, Connecticut, employs a staff of 55 dedicated, experienced advisers, whose average tenure with Largay exceeds 15 years. The company is strategically divided into three separate divisions: leisure travel, group & incentive and independent agents, to ensure all the respective, unique needs of each sector are satisfied.
We are proud members of Virtuoso, an exclusive worldwide network of travel specialists, and Roland Largay capably serves as Chairman Emeritus of the Virtuoso Advisory Board. Our membership provides for exclusive travel experiences and guarantees values not available or accessible to outsiders. Virtuoso membership is limited to fewer than 1% of all global agencies which enables us to offer you complimentary upgrades, outstanding amenities and privileged access to events throughout the world.
Our primary leisure expertise and focus is on soft-adventure programs (i.e. hiking, biking, walking, ballooning, etc.), family travel, worldwide deluxe cruising, and African Safaris. Roland Largay, having just returned from escorting his 28th safari, was featured for four consecutive years by Conde Nast Travel magazine as one of “America’s Top 100 Secret Travel Agents”; Paul Largay was recognized on the “A-List” of the world’s top agents published by Travel & Leisure magazine for the seventh consecutive year. Considering there are 26,000 eligible agents competing for these honors, we are extremely proud of these professional recognitions and distinctions!
Paul Largay made his prime time television debut on the Travel Channel’s reality show “Vacation Challenge”. Paul was chosen from a nationwide search for his professionalism, wit and knowledge about the world of travel. After two successful, critically acclaimed seasons, the producers expanded the broadcast distribution to international television markets and audiences.
Let the principals and staff of Largay Travel share with you their wealth of knowledge, quest for adventure, and countless personal travel experiences, and your travel dreams will quickly become a reality and life long memory.
