What are your services?
I begin each travel planning session with a one-on-one consultation.
I then create a detailed proposal with a variety of vacation options. This can be as simple as an itinerary or as in-depth as "door-to-door" details.
After you've chosen your dream vacation, I make all bookings, arrange payments, logistics, details, and documents pre-travel. I'm available during your travel for emergencies and questions.
What do you charge?
For most all-inclusives, honeymoons, group tours, ocean cruises, river cruises, and Disney vacations, I do not charge a fee. I earn a commission from my suppliers.
If you are interested in a custom vacation, a fee may be charged to accommodate the countless research hours and itinerary building customized to your liking.
Please be aware if you ask me to build an itinerary for you, and you choose not to book with me, I do reserve the right to invoice you for my research fee. This can vary from $50-$200 dependent upon the amount of time spent on the plans.
Why should I use a travel agent?
Not only am I passionate about planning travel, but I am a traveling agent.
I visit properties, meet with suppliers, experience adventures, so I can ensure your vacation will exceed your expectations.
I have built relationships with suppliers, hotel managers, and concierges. I can create unique experiences for you because of these relationships.
Leave all the stress and logistics up to me, so you can truly enjoy your vacation.
How should I prepare for my initial consultation?
Vacation is all about expectation, so to prepare for your initial consultation with me, I want you to think about the type of experience you imagine yourself having on vacation. You don't have to know a location or destination, but you should have a vision.
Just as important as experience is budget. Everyone has their own expectations for the amount a vacation should cost. I can work with a variety of budgets to ensure the experience you are imagining can become a reality. Be sure to come prepared with a budget range you would like to stay within. There is no set cost for any destination, as there are a wide variety of accommodations, experiences, and modes of travel.
