Sandy Lovick opened Market Square Travel LLC for business in 1984, with a mission to provide every traveler with exceptional service. Sandy has owned and operated the agency successfully for over 30 years and now has six locations in Minnesota and an office in River Falls, Wisconsin. In 1989, Market Square Travel LLC joined the Carlson Wagonlit Travel Team now rebranded as Travel Leaders, allowing us to expand and improve our services, technology, and buying power, which resulted in reduced costs, time savings, and overall better service to our customers. Today, our goal is to be the travel company of choice for our customers, employees, and vendors. To accomplish this, we will provide every traveler the best service available at the lowest possible cost.
Whether planning a family vacation, a romantic cruise for two, a trip to China, honeymoon or a business trip, our agents can offer you a broad selection of travel options and services to meet all of your travel needs. We offer you exclusive specials on domestic and international airfare, cruises, hotel rooms and car rentals.
Our agency is fortunate to offer travelers a wide variety of travel arrangements. We have travel consultants specializing in leisure, corporate, group, meeting and incentive travel. Why spend hours trying to make those travel arrangements yourself when we have travel specialists to do it for you. Click on the links below to learn more about our staff.
In the past 30 years the agency has grown from a small office in the International Market Square building in downtown Minneapolis to a multi-office agency. The agency’s offices include recent acquisitions of Tubby Lohmer’s Travel, Suntime Travel and MSP Travel.

Travel Coordinators will be working with several agents at the same time and are asked to keep a log of the amount of time they spend on each agent’s tasks. They may be asked to work consumer events, in different offices and on occasion help cover weekend shifts.
The best Travel Coordinators will be very organized and detail-oriented, while being able to multi-task, able to work with many different types of personalities, confident in their writing, communication and computing skills.
