About The Travel Club

Show of the Month Club was the first theater club of its kind in New England, bringing great shows, the best seats and discounted tickets to its members. It wasn’t long before the Club began to offer unique, affordable travel as well. Today, after over 50 years and thousands of trips, The Travel Club has established its own identity as a companion to the venerable Show of the Month Club.

The Travel Club offers all kinds of travel to the world’s most desired destinations, including some right here in New England. What they all have in common is value – we provide our members with outstanding travel experiences at tremendous savings.

The Travel Club is a subsidiary of New Venture Media Group LLC, which owns and operates Show of the Month Club. The company also publishes Playbill and Theatrebill—Boston’s leading theater program magazines, and Panorama, the official Guide to Boston, and Art New England, the region’s foremost art and culture magazine.

Here’s what Travel Club members are saying

"The trip was fantastic. Alessandra was outstanding. Group size was perfect and we got along well. Would be hard to best the great central location. All in all-just the best trip ever."
"This was my first Club trip. I met some people who were also on your tour for the first time. We all agreed it was the way to go. A worry-free vacation for us with all details taken care of. All we had to do was get on the bus or boat and travel along – fabulous! The tour guide Alessandra was more than wonderful, very professional and knowledgeable. The whole trip from start to finish was A+++. Thanks."
"It was an outstanding trip. Excellent guide! Lush countryside and seaside and old towns."
Janice C. (WALKING IN LIGURIA, 2016)
"This trip was something of a bucket-list trip for me because I wanted to see a few things in each city and did not want to have to negotiate the travel logistics on my own. In this instance, I was happy to sign up for a guided tour. The primary benefit of an escorted tour is the opportunity to meet new people and to have company at meals. Companions at dinner is the only thing I miss when I’m going it alone. The fellow travelers I’ve met on SOMC tours provided some of the most memorable and enjoyable moments of the tours I’ve joined. In short, I like both solo and group experiences depending on the destination(s). Thank you for providing such memorable and rewarding travel experiences. P.S. Barbara Shaughnessy is the best. Truly... THE BEST. (... and I’m not the only one who thinks that.)"
Dennis D. (ROME & FLORENCE, 2016)
"Our tour guide, Gabriella, was wonderful. I liked the size of the group. I feel like I have 27 new friends. Can’t thing of anything to change. "
Ellen L. (Tuscany, 2015)
"We thank you for giving us a wonderful experience on the Amalfi Coast and Rome. We met new friends, enjoyed amazing scenery, sights and history. Great value for our money. We will continue to view your website to help in planning out next getaway! Oh…and the food and wine were wonderful."
Susan C. (THE AMALFI COAST, 2015)
"We had a wonderful time exploring the Amalfi Coast from the comfortable and picturesque base in Maiori. Our guide Alessandra really helped us make the most of each place we visited. She was an excellent, capable, engaging woman who cared about us and our experience in her native land. The size of the group was just right, the hotel was clean and comfortable and the bus driver was amazing. The trip was fabulous and we would ravel with The Club again. Nancy and Kevin B."

Out tour manager Donatella was very organized, informative and personable. Reflecting on the trip, we wish that we had extended it. Thetrip and group were wonderful and the manager did a fantastic job at keeping the group involved and enthusiastic."
