Travel by Scott was founded in 1982 by Joann Scott. In 1991 Cosmopolitan Travel merged with Travel by Scott to form Cosmopolitan Travel by Scott, however, as our loyal customers know we go by “Travel by Scott” when we answer the phones.
We are a full Service Travel Agency specializing in both Domestic and International Leisure and Corporate travel. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff has a combined 60+ years experience in the travel industry and will work diligently to find the air, cruise, tour, car, rail, and hotel reservations to best fit your travel needs.
Our philosophy of doing our best to provide superior customer service is more than just words; it is an attitude and a way of life. Proof of our success can be seen on a wall in our office where we proudly display our “Royal Viking” awards from Scandinavian Airlines. Cosmopolitan Travel by Scott is one of the top 100 SAS Royal Viking Travel Agencies in North America. We are proud to say that we have been honored with this “Royal Viking” award for over 30 years.
Trust, integrity, and relationships with our customers as well as our providers are at the core of our business. Many of our clients are or have become lifelong friends. We support the Danish Sisterhood, Danish American Women’s Club, Rebild National Park Society, Sons of Norway, SWEA, Vasa Order of America, American Scandinavian Foundation, Swedish American Historical Association of California, Finnlandia Foundation, and the Danish, Finnish, Norwegian and Swedish American Chambers of Commerce as well as both the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts USA.
Again we wish to welcome you to our Travel Agency and thank you for taking the time to learn a little about us, who we are and what we do. We’d love to hear from you in person too! We hope sincerely that you will give us a chance to earn your trust, your business and maybe even your friendship!
Joann Adso Scott CTC
I am the original owner of Travel by Scott, which opened 1982, after working for Scandinavian Airlines(SAS). I have been active in the travel industry for approximately 30 years and am CTC accredited. As a native Dane I specialize in Scandinavia, but am well traveled to unusual destinations. I am also an enthusiastic cruise buff, which means, that I am always looking forward to a good conversation about old and new ships.
As a native Swede, I have now lived in the US for almost 25 years. Being a former employee of Scandinavian Airlines in Los Angeles and Gothenburg, Sweden, I have worked for Travel by Scott since 1992. I may love to visit Sweden, but I'd love to help you see the world!
