What we can do for you...


Thunderbird Travel opened its doors in 1974 as a full service travel agency serving Southern Illinois. The office was located in Carbondale IL near Southern Illinois University and continues to be of service to their staff, professors and students alike. After having worked for the agency since 1986, Cyndi (along with her husband Lee) decided to purchase it in 2001. They relocated the agency to their hometown of Murphysboro in 2006.
