PROFESSIONAL TRAVEL ADVICE AND SERVICE PACKAGES

    TRAVEL PLANNING: THE IMPORTANCE OF HAVING A PROFESSIONAL TRAVEL PROFESSIONAL ON YOUR SIDE!


    Thank you for reaching out to learn a little bit more about my travel services. I want to take a moment to explain the process of working with me to plan your dream vacation. You will receive the benefit of my extensive knowledge, service, and expertise as a travel professional the past 31 years. I will be there for you throughout the entire trip planning stages ~ from the research and planning, through to getting you home in case there are any unexpected interruptions along the way.


    Since COVID-19, navigating the world can be overwhelming especially with the ever-changing travel requirements and restrictions on travellers. Now more than ever, you want a travel professional by your side to ensure you are 'travel ready' for a stress free and seamless vacation.  In the event something unexpected interrupts your vacation plans before or during travel, I will be your human connection that will advocate for you to get you home safely and efficiently. 


    I am passionate and knowledgeable about the travel industry. This has been my only career since graduating from the 2 year Travel Consultant program at my local University. Why has this been my only career? Because I love it! Nothing makes me happier than sending my clients on the most memorable of dream vacations! Learning all things travel is part of who I am. I continue to stay up-to-date by learning through my valuable travel partners, colleagues and my own personal travel experiences. I offer exceptional customer service to my valued clients so you can feel confident all the details of your vacation will be looked after. 


    Research is the most time consuming and stressful part of vacation planning. Not only is there a plethora of options, how do you know what is reputable or what fits your wants/needs? Do you know the average person spends almost 28 hours searching the net for a holiday!? So, let me do the work for you so you can enjoy more time doing the things you love. Having a Travel Professional, like me, who has knowledge through supplier trainings, certifications AND personal, client and colleague experiences are all key factors in recommending the perfect vacation! 


    During our consultation, I will dig deep to learn all about you. What trips stood out for you in the past, what your vacation disasters were, the must haves, the nice to haves, the non-negotiable's, any food allergies, dietary needs, mobility restrictions, and most of all how I can help make this trip special. Your answers will help me create a trip that ticks all of your travel boxes. The world is a very large place and it can get overwhelming with all of the offers, sales, tour companies, independent options and zillions of hotels available. I can help you discover hidden gems and off-the-beaten-track places, experience a local cooking class, shopping an iconic avenue, nightlife on the beach or a romantic getaway and more. I'll customize your vacation so that it suits your travel style and budget every time you travel! 

     

    In terms of what I can offer that you cannot find online - expertise, service, value, knowledge, my relationships with the best travel suppliers in the industry and of course, a human connection.  The internet is for looking, not for booking ... why would you trust hard earned cash to an impersonal website? 


    Due to the nature of travel in this new era, in order to enter into a research and travel management agreement with my clients, I will require commitment from my clients before any advice and research will begin. What are you waiting for? Let's start planning!
