Destination Exploration

Our mission is to offer travelers unrivaled savings at a selection of hand-picked luxurious destinations. Curious about Universal Travel and why we help customers?

Universal Travel is a full-service travel agency with roots that go back 50 years.  The agency was started by the Ney family in Fort Smith, Arkansas in 1969.

Ron and Susan Tucker purchased the agency from Randy in 2018 and are committed to providing the same level of service to help our clients make the most of their leisure time.  Our travel advisors have the experience and passion for uncompromising service to our clients.

Our partnership with Virtuoso gives us access to partners all over the world with the same level of commitment to excellence.  We can offer you travel benefits and experiences that you can’t get by booking directly.

If travel is part of your life’s plan, Universal Travel will work with you to prioritize your dreams and turn them into realities.  Call us about your travel “Wanderlist” and we will help you create a plan to make it happen!

Our Group Travel program allows you to join vacations led by an experienced Tour Director who knows the location intimately.  Our Women’s Travel Club, Wander Women, brings together women from everywhere who want to explore the world and form lifelong friendships with other women.

Our value proposition is to provide clarity to the confusion of choices and destination information by discovering what matters to you as a traveler, and subsequently leveraging our knowledge and industry relationships to deliver personalized recommendations and solutions.  It all starts with a conversation!
