About FROSCH - Wayland Travel

FROSCH - Wayland Travel and its subsidiary, ATD - Adventure Travel Desk, are sister companies dedicated to fulfilling your travel dreams and smoothing your way around the world.

Wayland Travel was founded in 1966 and has served corporate and individual clients across the country and around the world from our location in Wayland, MA ever since. In January of 2019,  Wayland Travel joined the FROSCH Travel Family.

Our leisure department can handle any request from a quick weekend getaway to a luxurious cruise or customized independent foreign tour.  Our professional staff members have an average of more than 18 years' experience in the travel industry and most are area specialists with destination-specific certifications and extensive personal travel experience. Between us, we have visited more than 120 countries and sailed with most major cruise lines. In addition, we "Work Magic With Miles" - integrating mileage and "points" with dollars to maximize the value of our clients' frequent flyer miles. We offer an extraordinary level of personal attention including "concierge" services to handle pre-booking your dining and activities at your destination. ATD - Adventure Travel Desk is a subsidiary specializing in custom safari design for travelers and travel agents.

In addition to vacation and business travel, we also make travel arrangements for race teams and related personnel on the NASCAR, CART and IRL and for many mission and philanthropic groups (Habitat for Humanity, Back2Back Ministries, Rise International and many others).
