You have a travel dream that you want to fulfill and I have the experience, expertise and resources to help you make your dream vacation a reality. I have carefully curated my own list of cruise lines, resorts and providers of all things travel that have an impeccable record of high-quality and service to their clients and that also offer the highest value for your vacation budget. My relationships with these suppliers also give me access to unique perks and special programs that you can not find on your own or through most other advisors. As an avid traveler myself, I also share my personal experiences with you so that your vacation experience is much more enjoyable and free from stress. We work together to create your vacation experience and I take care of all the details on your behalf.
Who I Work With
To help you experience your travel dreams I have selected a special group of travel companies to work with who are known for their high levels of service and are in the top tiers of their respective categories. These are the same companies that I personally use because of their standing within the industry and with the traveling community. Only the best can deliver on a dream and that is why my preferred supplier list exists.
What to Expect
By working with the top suppliers you can expect your vacation experience to be unlike anything you have had yet. It also needs to be clarified upfront that I do not compete with any other agencies when it comes to trying to play the price war game and no professional travel consultant worth their salt would even consider trying to claim that they can compete with any of the online booking platforms because they don't provide real pricing information to you anyway. I provide service and I bring value to your travel design so that when you embark on your vacation you will be experiencing the best, and most, that your travel plan has to offer. I don't do the price war game because the bottom line is this: when you go low on pricing you end up sacrificing value and service and that is not what I deliver. If you want cheap then by all means, book it yourself online and good luck. But before you do, please do your homework on what to expect if you go it alone and something happens. There are thousands of horror stories out there from travelers who were left stranded when the COVID pandemic shut the world down and all of those horror stories have one major thing in common: they all booked their vacations on their own and did it with one of the online booking platforms and there was nobody to help them get home or even get reimbursed for their investment. Many professional advisors and consultants did what they could to help these people in their time of need but our ability to help is very limited because we are not associated with your booking so we do not have access, or the authority, to provide you the same assistance that we can our own travelers. This why even the suppliers themselves highly recommend that you use a professional travel advisor or consultant because we are your advocate and they prefer to work with someone who knows the industry and how to take care of our patrons. The choice is ultimately yours, you can go it alone and hope for the best or you can invest smartly in your vacation and rest easy knowing that there is someone there for you when the need arises that will put you and your needs first.
