Overview

Panda Travel ®, Hawaii’s largest travel agency and one of the oldest travel agent companies in the state, was created in June 1981.  Since then, tourists and kama’ainas and alike have come to depend upon us out of all the Hawaii travel agents specializing in vacation packages to, from and within the Aloha State.
Panda ®, together with Pan Tours, which was established as a travel wholesaler in 1978, make up The Panda Group.  Today, these two companies have grown into two retail agencies, a large staff of dedicated and knowledgeable employees and a record of ticketing more than one million passengers. Panda ®, Pan Tours and The Panda Group are locally owned and operated and have now served Hawaii for more than 35 years.
Panda ® and Pan Tours are respectively one of the largest Hawaii travel agents and travel wholesalers and are rated by the Better Business Bureau as A+ companies.  Panda Travel ® is also a long standing member of the American Society of Travel Agencies (ASTA) and the Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau (HVCB).  Our company has created a tremendous following, not only in Hawaii, but across the globe.  Our satisfied clientele represents the entire spectrum from the independent leisure and business traveler and special group tours to commercial and corporate travelers.
The Panda Group, Pan Tours and Panda ® are also very active in our local Hawaiian communities.  We support various community organizations including the University of Hawaii’s Athletic Scholarship Programs and many other community-related events throughout the state.
Our company has direct access to thousands of hotel properties around the world, car rental agencies and more than 300 US and foreign airlines from our two reservation systems, Sabre and Apollo.  In addition, as a long time and established company in Hawaii, we have secured special discounts from virtually all of the hotels in Hawaii, which we can pass on to you.  As a result, you can then enjoy great hotel package rates on Honolulu,Maui,Kauai, Molokai and the Big Island when booking on our Hawaii travel agency website.
