Preferred Tour Operators

The Preferred Tour Operator (PTO) category of membership is unique and exclusive within HCI.  We carefully select each PTO to ensure that they represent diverse products that our HCI bank club members will find attractive to purchase.  HCI's PTOs understand the unique needs and expectations of our bank clubs and are very motivated to provide the highest level of service to our members.  And, if you have 15 passengers travel with our PTOs, your club director membership dues will be waived.

If you are a tour operator who is interested in becoming an HCI Preferred Tour Operator, please reach out to Michael Ziegler.  We are always open to partnering with companies that offer unique travel experiences to our members.  



Allied Tour & Travel

You’ve got a lot of people counting on you.  We get it…

     Since 1962, Allied Tour & Travel has learned that you want the group travel process to be simple from start to finish.  In order to do that, you need a reliable partner to do the heavy lifting with planning and logistics.  The problem is, it’s hard to find someone who really listens to your needs, which leaves you feeling like you’re doing most of the work.  We believe group travel planning should be a pleasant, worry-free process. We’re here for you!

     Some favorites tours include Ladies ONLY Tours, Mystery Tours, California Zephyr Rail, Baseball/Football Tours, Amish Tours, Palo Duro, and Israel Tours.  Whether you’re interested in reserving seats on one of our retail tours or creating a unique tour of your own, we’ll be excited to lighten your load and deliver a tour experience second to none!

We are proud members of:  HCI, IMG, NTA, ABA, Travel Leaders, and the BBB.

Hospitality Tours

Hospitality Tours was founded by Ted Nelson in 1981 and is still owned and operated by him.  We have welcomed more than 400 bank club trips from the bank club members of Heritage Clubs International (HCI).  We have served thousands of bank club customers to the Northeast USA and Eastern & Atlantic Canada: From Washington DC and Virginia to Niagara Falls and New York; from New England to Ontario & Quebec; from Nova Scotia to Newfoundland.

We understand the unique nature of group travel for the high-end deposit customers of community banks all across the country who are members of HCI.  The banks are offering travel to build strong, lasting relationships with their customers.  Our job is to make sure those bank customers have an experience that has gone beyond their expectations.  At the end of every trip, our goal is to hear the guests telling their bank club director that the trip was wonderful and they are so glad they chose to travel with the bank.  That is success for Hospitality Tours!

We only work with the community bank club members of HCI.  We will never be selling our tours to any other group leaders in your community, whether they be banks, credit unions, senior centers, hospitals, chambers of commerce, faith groups or any other.  Only HCI banks!
