Pasadena Branch Awarded Reader Recommended Best of Pasadena 2021

Press Release

November 11, 2021 – TravelStore’s Pasadena branch was named as a “Reader Recommended Best of Pasadena 2021” business. Readers of Pasadena Weekly, the hometown paper of Pasadena, CA were invited to take a survey to nominate their favorite local businesses and services. Pasadena Weekly has an audited circulation of over 27,000 and is available at over 600 locations throughout Northeast Los Angeles County. TravelStore was awarded Best Travel Agency in the survey.

TravelStore is the largest travel agency headquartered in California. The Pasadena location is the oldest travel agency in Pasadena. Originally founded in 1945 as Bennett Travel, the business has been maintained throughout its 76-year history, though it has been sold and renamed, most recently as TravelStore Pasadena. The travel experts on staff are established professionals with years of experience, exemplifying the company’s tag line: We’ve been where you want to go.

Heidi Hoehn, the Pasadena Office leisure manager, said: “The hardest obstacle our team faced this past year was seeing careers and livelihoods decimated by Covid. Earlier this fall, as I thought about the 20th anniversary of Sept 11, I realized that twice in my life I have envisioned the end of my Industry, and more importantly of my passion—and twice I have found that we can find ways to move forward.”

TravelStore’s mantra for traveling in 2021 was to stay alert and be flexible. Customarily expected in the process of traveling, TravelStore encourages its advisors to travel to experience destinations and resorts firsthand, as having a well-traveled and well-educated team is an important value that’s provided for their clients.
