Meet the Team

David M LaMere, Founder/Owner

I was born in Upstate New York and raised by my grandparents. My grandmother was a frequent traveler and took me along with her often. I enjoyed traveling and knew at a young age that I wanted to dedicate my career to giving clients the same type of experiences I had growing up.

After high school, I became a family man! I started having children before becoming a school bus driver for a large school district back in Upstate New York. A short time later, I started part-time driving for a local motorcoach / charter company. That continued to grow my passion for the industry. I moved to Northwest Indiana in 2005 and continued to drive both school bus and motorcoach out of the Chicagoland area.

In 2008, I gave up the school bus side and went full-time into the motorcoach side so I could travel further away from the area and experience more of our great nation. Long story short, after working with a couple more companies, my career led me to the Iowa City area where I have planted my roots and am here for the long haul.

From 2017-2019, I managed a motorcoach company that was in the area for a short time and I was remarkably successful in building that business. Little did I know it was a short-term plan of theirs to be in the area. Since I did not want to move again, I decided it’s now time to build my own company and use my experience to make LaMere Family Travel the most successful company I can for both our clients and my family to eventually carry on my passion for many generations!

“My goal in starting this company is to bring amazing memories
to our travelers while saving them money.”
