Village Accepted Into IMG Network

We are thrilled to announce that Village Travel has joined the International Motorcoach Group (IMG). Formed in 1998, IMG began as a group of independent charter bus rental companies working together to form a North American network of operators that shared a commitment to excellence in customer service, safety, training and maintenance. Today, IMG members offer a wide range and selection of charter bus rental vehicles to meet customer needs. Bus charters, luxury motorcoaches, school buses, limousines, and shuttle services are all part of the prestigious IMG network that serves more than 21 million passengers. IMG pride itself on “Setting the Standard” in the transportation industry.

“At Village Travel, we’ve always looked at IMG as representing some of the best coach operators in the country. We are excited to become a member of such a great group due to the driver training, networking and on-road support that IMG members provide to each other. Our geographic footprint fits into the existing network well, our membership will be a win-win,” said Jeff Arensdorf, CEO of Village Travel. “There are IMG members in nearly every US state and Canadian providence. If you need services beyond what Village can offer, whether you are looking for a limo or are outside of our service areas, we can connect travelers with another trusted IMG member.”

To be considered for IMG, an operator must be nominated, vetted and approved by 100% of the member operators. There are currently 55 members with over 7,000 coaches across the U.S. and Canada in IMG.
“Village Travel is a wonderful addition to the IMG network, giving us expanded presence in key areas throughout Kansas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Missouri. As a family owned, quality operation Village Travel will add great value to our network and our customers,” said IMG President Bronwyn Wilson in a Metro Magazine article.

All members display the IMG logo on their charter coaches, and Village will soon be adding the logo to our fleet. Benefits of being an IMG member include access to an excellent driver training program, nationwide marketing efforts, charter sales training, safety & maintenance seminars, and most importantly a nationwide network of “friends” who are required to assist each other when they have mechanical issues.
