McCoy Custom Travel/Fiji Escapes Travel/Aloha
Destinations/Fiji Romance Holidays has been assisting people like
you since 1986 (we started as Aloha Destinations). McCoy Custom
Travel was opened as a small agency on Maui in 1993. We went on
the Internet in 1996 with the first Fiji Islands Travel website
in the world. Yes, in the world! We are one of the top producing
wholesale/retail Fiji Travel agencies in the USA and the largest
inbound privately owned Hawaii Retail Travel Agency in Hawaii.
I, Melissa McCoy, have lived in Hawaii since 1974 and have been
visiting Fiji since 1991 as a Honeymooner and Diver. I have visited
Fiji a total of about a year of my life with multiple extended
stays of over 3 weeks throughout the years. I have provided Consultation
to several Fiji resorts when upgrading the resorts and services
to USA client’s standards and expectations. I love what
I do and I’m here, we are here, for the long haul.
We are now affiliated with Vacation.com, a Billion Dollar sales
organization. This affiliation allows us to offer so much more
value to you. So far this year we have further expanded our New
Zealand and Australia
offering tremendously and will continue to do so through the year.
Our New Zealand department will add more on Food and Wine travel.
We have also added Samoa
with Swimming with Humpback whales in Tonga being something that
might change your life forever. If you are looking for a new South
Pacific Adventure, try Vanuatu!
The live volcano you can hike to, virgin scuba diving and an indigenous
culture will WOW you with new delights! We now offer exclusive
value added and resort credits at resorts throughout Hawaii.
In addition, our Cruise
offerings and discounts are keeping pace with internet pricing
and we will soon have an online booking engine for Cruises offering
some highly discounted cruise pricing. Now, your favorite McCoy
Custom Travel Consultant can assist you with travel
worldwide with service and pricing that you will enjoy. We can
now also assist you with Europe
This year we “obtained” a couple of world class Travel
Designers who moved to Maui from the mainland. Looking for a Disney
Specialist? Hiapo Cockett was just at Disney World
for 7 nights on his way to the Caribbean to La
Samana Resort. If you want some enthusiasm for these
destinations, contact Hiapo at 213-784-4910.
Since we are located on Maui, it is easy for us to experience
the hotels in our own backyard. There is no doubt that we have
the most complete collective knowledge you will find about all
the resorts and accommodations in Hawaii. Our agents enjoy weekends
at many of the fine resorts throughout Hawaii. We are TOP producers
with Classic Vacations and Pleasant Holidays and offer you their
fantastic values and customer service AND OURS... To make double
sure that your time in Hawaii is the best we can make it. We know
the hotel sales staff by name and talk to them often. Why would
you book direct when you can have double the customer service
for the same or less price?
And, the agents are on the move..... We’ve had 6 Vacation
Consultants plus myself visit Fiji
on a regular basis. Do you want the most diverse knowledge about
Fiji? Look no further. If you added up all of our days in Fiji
(for all staff) you are looking at about 90 days of experiences
in just the last year. From new luxury resorts with plunge pools
to the remote and little known island of Kadavu, diving and river
rafting, kayaking, snorkeling and hiking... We have done it all
this year and are enthusiastic to work with you to share our experiences,
our enthusiasm and knowledge with you.
I turned 50 in 2004 and wandered off to Tonga for my dream experience...
Swimming/snorkeling within feet of a mom and baby humpback whales.
It was incredible. The southern hemisphere humpbacks go to Tonga
in our summer (their winter) which is reverse of Whale season
in Hawaii. Click here
to visit my review and whale pictures of my 50th.. Celebrating
life with the gentle giants. In November of 2004 we took my husbands
dream vacation to Africa.
We experienced Cape Town, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Botswana (Chobe
and the Okavango Delta). For my best friend’s 50th (Susan)
we ventured to Italy
in 2005. That was a great adventure. Michael (my husband) and
I sampled New Caledonia and Vanuatu in late 2005 (I fell in love
with Vanuatu). Melissa and Susan “did”
Fiji for our September Birthday Adventure. We were there for 3
weeks visiting Kadavu, Qamea, Cousteau, Namale, Sofitel, Hilton
and many places inbetween. My husband and I will venture off to
Tasmania the end of 2006 and then to Pohnpei and Kosrae in early
Happy Client letters are growing daily... Take a look by clicking
And please read what Expedia/Classic
in the travel industry, have to say about us.
I read a quote that made me laugh, " Even if you're on the
right track, you'll get run over if you sit there!!!" "Will
Rogers". So true. We hope that next year is on the right
track and you don't sit still. And, that live is grand and fulfilling!
If you would like to know more about our Staff, click
We’ll fill you in a little about who we are, our families
and our interests. We have a unique bunch of people here at McCoy
Custom Travel. Interesting hobbies, many supporting charities
and conservation in our community. We’re not just a virtual
agency, we are also have 4 walls around us! we say here “
It’s you Vacation and it’s our life!” Let us
provide you with the TLC Travel Designing we are known for. We
can save you time and money and most of all, headaches. In an
“internet” world, sometimes it is “TMI”
(too much information) and can be confusing and very stressful,
to say the least.
We hope to hear from soon.
Warm and sunny regards from Maui
