About Livonia Travel

Travel map of Europe laid out on table

Next Travel was established in 2018 as a joint venture between Charlie O’Neill (founder of HD Travel) and Chris Conlin (former owner of Conlin Travel).

With over 60 years of combined experience, Chris and Charlie brought their leisure travel companies together to form one entity. They began to grow their group and leisure business, striving to be the largest leisure travel agency in Michigan.

In January 2020, Next Travel acquired Suburban Travel of Rochester Hills, MI and Classic Travel of Okemos, MI. With these acquisitions, Next Travel gained a second brick and mortor location in Okemos, MI and seven additional travel advisors.

In March 2022, Next Travel acquired Menno Travel, located in Goshen, IN. With this acquisition, Next Travel expanded its reach into Indiana, adding a third location in Goshen, and also added corporate travel into its business mix.

In April 2022, Charlie O’Neill purchased Chris Conlin’s interest in Next Travel. He is currently the sole owner. Next Travel now has 35 employees, and is quickly growing to be one of the largest travel agencies in the midwest.
