About Jaya Travel & Tours
Your Metro Detroit Travel Agency & Beyond
Jaya Travel & Tours is an all-in-one travel agency that was founded in 1976 by its current president, Mr. Arvin Shah, and his wife, Mrs. Jaya Shah. Their goal was to provide accessible airline tickets, hotels, and car rentals to travelers around the globe. For over 45 years, the team has maintained Jaya’s mission statement to provide exceptional service and experience to our clients and members of our organization.
In 2004, Arvin and Jaya Shah funded the Jaya Rehabilitation Institute in India to provide prosthetic treatment to victims of the disastrous 2001 earthquake. Today, the center provides patients with physical and occupational therapy, mobility training, kinetic movement, and rehabilitation with the help of expert physiotherapists, doctors, and occupational therapists. The facility also treats various animals by fabricating animal prosthetics and orthotics. In 2022 The Jaya Rehab Center signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Michigan State University Medical School in Lansing, Michigan USA to begin a global collaborative research and development program.
Headquartered in Metro Detroit, Michigan, Jaya Travel & Tours has multiple industry memberships and associations: The American Society of Travel Agents (ASTA), The International Airlines Travel Agent Network (IATAN), The Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), and The Airline Reporting Corporation (ARC). In addition, Air India recognizes Jaya Travel as one of America’s leading tour operators to India.
