About Us

Your partner in travel 

Meacham Travel started doing business in Iowa City in 1952. We’ve always placed an emphasis on adding a personal touch to our services and developing long term partnerships with our clients.

Meacham Travel has been locally owned and operated by Dennis and Elaine Shalla since 1987.  We are a Targeted Small Business and specialize in serving other small businesses.  We have been a preferred agency of The University of Iowa since 1997.   We are veterans of trip planning for individuals, families, and groups. We can help you put together tours and cruises as well as air travel, accommodations, and rental car services.

Our experienced and friendly agents have your back

Every advisor at Meacham Travel has over 35 years of experience and is up to date on the current challenges that come with modern travel. Not only can we find you the best deal, we can help you avoid common mistakes that can add stress to a trip. Booking errors cost time and money at best and can leave you stranded at worst. Meacham Travel helps you avoid those risks. Learn more about how we help you travel.

An official University of Iowa Travel Agency

One long-term partnership we’ve enjoyed cultivating is our connection to The University of Iowa.  Meacham Travel has been a preferred agency of the university since 1997.  If you are faculty or staff working to plan a trip for your department or area, you can use our dedicated form to get started.

Travel Costs and Booking Fees

Meacham Travel applies discounts negotiated by the university with preferred airline and car rental vendors.  Please check with us about your trip in particular.  Agency booking fees apply to airline reservations.  We will be happy to give you an estimate.
