About Us

Hello! My name is Tom Higham and I began my incredible journey in the travel industry in 1968.  In 1972, I became the co-owner / operator of Salem Travel, a full- service family travel agency located in Salem, Oregon. My travels have taken me to nearly 160 countries and island nations across the globe.
After 32 years, I sold Salem Travel and relocated to the Portland metropolitan area.  After working for a couple of large travel agencies in Portland, Oregon, it became clear to me that I longed to use my creativity and experience to design personalized adventures for my clients.  My true travel passion lies in working one-on-one with my customers.

I decided to honor this passion and open a new personal service travel agency once again: Travel by Tom Higham was born!

My lifetime investment in learning about the world’s myriad cultures, customs and customer needs coupled with my extensive travel expertise help me make planning your next vacation adventure a breeze.

Travel by Tom Higham specializes in international travel, group travel, world-wide cruising, honeymoons, anniversary celebrations, reunions, meetings, sports & music group travel, always featuring custom trip planning.

I understand the value of travelers that are well prepared for their journey.  Travel by Tom Higham will ensure that every detail of your trip will be in place before you take off. For example, a complete review of any travel documents that may be required for your journey will be identified and procured. All necessary documents including passports, visas, immunizations/travel medical information, as well as travel insurance and medical air evacuation details are available through Travel by Tom Higham. In addition, like the old family doctor, I come to you. My travel consulting is available at your convenience in your home or at your office anywhere in the Portland metropolitan area.

Let me make your travel dreams come true. New customers and referrals are always welcome. Tom is just a phone call or email away from the beginning of your next adventure!
