The Search for the Story
Oftentimes the story lies beyond the beaten path. It’s not that same background you see in every Instagram selfie. The story is discovered through experience. So we set out to explore.
We seek out the locals (the “characters” of the story, if you will) and we listen. We follow their suggestions, and our intuition. We grow to learn about the destination as we lean into the present moment and LIVE IT.
When we design travel for clients, we always start with the story. We ask ourselves, how can we place travelers in the heart of the story? Who can we connect them with to create their own stories?
There are no tourists in our eyes. Only characters who have yet to meet, and stories yet to be written.
What We Do
Overseas Leisure Group works with travel agents worldwide to design one-of-a-kind experiences that are tailor-made to their clients’ individual interests, travel styles, and budgets.
Since 2000, we’ve specialized in North America and explored just about every corner of this diverse continent to unearth the wildest, most original, most authentic experiences around.
Accommodations are just one piece of the story. Where others stop at lodging, this is merely our beginning. We don’t have an a la carte brochure to choose from. And we never build the same itinerary twice.
Instead, we dream big. We carefully consider every element of the traveler’s experience, from the moment they take off to the minute they come back home. We offer up an impressive variety of products and services, working connections that are exclusive to Overseas. We negotiate with vendors, get inventive with our tailored recommendations, and manage every detail to perfection. And we sprinkle in the magic like no one else can.
Why Work With Us?
We're Destination Authorities
Overseas Leisure Group has led the North American travel industry for over 20 years, longer than most inbound travel operators and DMCs around.
We’re proud of our intimate destination knowledge, and how we’ve come to acquire it – years of relationship building, careful vetting, and actually LIVING IT!
We know what makes a small mountain town special. What hidden gems lie within the biggest urban cities. Where the island locals flock to, but never share with tourists.
Don’t get us wrong...We’re extremely well-informed on international travel too. While North America is our main obsession, we are equally passionate and in the know of destinations around the globe.
Bespoke doesn’t have to mean expensive. Sure, it can be. But what’s original about spending loads of money for the same experiences as everyone else?
To us, a bespoke travel experience is original. It evokes emotion. It connects people. It’s out of the box, and maybe a little crazy. It’s locally inspired, and authentically executed.

We don’t sell it unless we believe in it. It’s that simple.
Our global team personally vets every vendor, supplier, hotel and hospitality brand we recommend. So you can promise quality, and book confidently.
We Know People
They say “It’s all about who you know.” And boy, do we know people.

Our network of contacts is unparalleled, and we have long-standing relationships with the best of the best – from ice fishing guides in Minnesota, to villa property owners in Tulum, to Forbes Five-Star hotels in Miami Beach and family-run ranches in Montana.

Best of all, OXPRO can get you incredible rates and the most competitive commissions around.
