SERVICES

Bring The Kids

Show your children the world. It is the greatest gift you can give them.  They may not realize it until they are older, but one day they will thank you.  Things do not last forever, but memories do.

Tired Parent Getaways

While I am a huge advocate for taking the kids with you.  I am also an advocate for keeping the bonds with your partner and friends strong.  It is okay to get away once and a while.  

Multi-Gen Travel

What better way to connect all generations of your family than through travel?  Added bonus:  you have a built in babysitter if you want to go out for a date night or take a nap!

Groups

Did you know that some group rates start with as few as ten cruise cabins?  Let’s discuss travel ideas for an affinity group or even large group of friends and/or family.   

YOU NEED ME AS YOUR TRAVEL ADVISOR IF

You view Travel Planning as a chore 
Guess who likes travel planning?  This girl!  

Finding the time to plan a trip seems impossible
Researching an itinerary and determining the logistics takes a lot of time.  I’m talking hours and hours of time.  You do not want to book the first trip you come across, you want to research multiple options to make sure you are making the right choice which takes even more time.  Let me sit in front of the computer or on hold on the phone while you cross off something else on your list that you can not delegate. 

The choices are overwhelming
 There is so much information on the internet, how do you know what is accurate and what is not?  Thanks to my expertise, I am able to zone in on the best options quickly. 

I have not been everywhere, but I have been to 44 countries (and counting)!  I have access to a team of travel advisors who have been to many of the places I have not been.  I also have direct access to suppliers.  Let me play matchmaker and match you to the travel experience best suited to you.  

You want to get the best value for your vacation dollars
That does not mean that I will find you the cheapest vacation.  It means I will get you the best value for your trip no matter what your price point is.  I am a former Financial Analyst with an emphasis on cost savings, which means I specialize in getting people the most bang for their buck.  

You want VIP treatment

Thanks to my relationships with travel suppliers, I can often get you amenities, upgrades and other special VIP touches that you can not get on your own.  You may be able to save a few dollars by going with a DIY vacation package, but the value of these special amenities often exceed those savings.  

You want help booking the extras
After you click Book Now on an internet booking engine, their job is done.  When you book your trip with me, my job is not done until you return from your trip.  I can help arrange restaurant and spa reservations, shore excursions, golf tee times, you name it!  That is what I am here for.

You want one person to call when something goes wrong

Maybe you do not mind selecting a vacation from an internet provider, but do you really want to spend your vacation dealing with the unexpected?  Do you think these internet meta-search engines are going to be there for you if you need help during your vacation?  I hope you have no reason to call me during your trip, but if you do need me, rest assured I will always answer the call to help!

hOW DOES THIS WORK?

First, you will fill out the online questionnaire or email me to schedule a quick call.

Next up is my free planning session.  Let’s chat face to face if possible, even if it is through technology!  I really want to get a feel for the type of trip you are seeking.  We will also discuss my service fee which is on a sliding scale based on the complexity of your trip.

I even offer you the ability to use your reward points and miles.  As part of the service fee, I offer an analysis on which of your programs would work best for your trip or why you might want to consider saving them for future travel.

Now is the time when you make the initial investment in your vacation by paying the service fee.  You are now free to relax, I’ll take it from here!  Why the Fee?  Please scroll up to the “You Need Me As Your Travel Advisor If”  section above for more details on the value I bring in turning your vacation into a treasured experience.

Yay!  My favorite part.  I love all the research and logistics that goes into crafting the perfect itinerary.  It’s true!  I will give you a few options within your price range so you can decide what is important to you.  Even though I take the stress away, you are still in control of the final decision.  Don’t worry, I’ll still be here for support as you weigh your options and can help guide you along the way.

I hope you don’t expect me to book your trip and then leave you alone!  I’ll be sending friendly reminders to help you get ready for your trip (you renewed your passport, right?!).  I can also arrange any extracurricular activities like restaurant reservations, tee times, and spa appointments.  Doesn’t that sound nice?

Pack your bags!  Sorry, I can’t help you with this part!  But don’t worry, I can send you some packing tips!

Bon Voyage!  Have the best time!  I am only a phone call away if something goes awry during your travels.  I’ve got your back, and we’ll get your vacation back on track quickly.
