  • What is a Luxury Travel Agency / Advisor?

    So much of what goes into a successful trip is a result of the talent and dedication of being your professional travel advisor.


    Anyone who has worked with me will tell you that I take the all stress out of your travel planning. That I've opened doors to reservations, experiences, and activities that they didn't know to be able & find on their own. That I've worked with them before, during and after their trip to ensure a seamless experience and extraordinary value.

    What I Do As A Skilled Advisor Every Day:

    • Take the time and demonstrate the ability to discover, understand and care about your needs
    • Use my knowledge of you to find what fits your interests and lifestyle
    • Offer suggestions about where to go
    • Provide comparisons and help you decide among multiple destinations on your bucket list
    • Advise on the best time to go and the best way to get there
    • Understand, you, my client, well enough to know when you are not making the best decision for you personally
    • Anticipate needs that you did not know you had
    • I'm dedicated to finding you the best value, saving you time and stress and being your advocate
    • Provide expertise, experience, and knowledge beyond the common – that which cannot be Googled!
    • Know the best places to stay – not just the most expensive but the ones that fit your needs best
    • Have the ability to refine room choices & provide those special features you want – connecting rooms with preferred views, preferred bedding, etc
    • Work beyond the sale - pre travel, during travel and post travel
    • Make sure that your preferences are known and acknowledged
    • Jump in to help should you encounter an emergency & If the need arises, help with any cancellation including rebooking options
    • Have insider access to perks and upgrades
    • May ask favors of the General Manager or concierge – someone at a hotel who I know on a first name basis
    • Provide in depth destination information
    • Provide information and analysis on air schedules and pricing
    • Compare and contrast cruises, tours, and hotels - analyzing what would be the best fit for you
    • Know which suppliers should be considered and how they differ
    • Orchestrate special and unique experiences
    • Draw on my 22+ years of experiences with other clients – what worked; what did not - and on the experience of other contacts.
    • Ask the right questions on complicated subjects and not just take the first answer
    • Use my experience to know when a claim or offer is either wrong or too good to be true
