The Atlas Story.
In 1986, Atlas Travel began when Elaine Osgood decided to make a career change after a decade of serving children as an elementary school teacher and social worker. Osgood bought a travel agency franchise, opened an office in Milford with one employee, no customers and travel experience that included only personal vacations.
In 1997, after winning every franchise award, Osgood discarded the training wheels and jumped into the arena as Atlas Travel International, ready to compete with the country’s largest travel agencies. Her perseverance, innovation and unyielding dedication to customer service have catapulted the agency into an award-winning corporation with multiple locations and a list of 50,000 satisfied customers traveling on business and vacation worldwide.
Now as one of an elite group of leading independent agencies chosen to represent BCD Travel, Atlas Travel is an exclusive Northeast Regional Affiliate for this $13 billion travel network. The Atlas Travel team personifies international travel expertise. Osgood has always believed that the way to best serve travelers is to hire travel professionals with unique skills, knowledge and 100% dedication to customer service. Atlas now has more than 150 employees and an expanding footprint, but this Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year is still dedicated to winning business one customer at a time.
