  • Why I assess fees

    Service Fees are part of the Profession.

    I'm a professional, and just like many other in professional fields, fees are part of my services. These fees vary depending on just what it is I'm arranging for you. As well as depending on number of people, children, destination, type of travel and more. I do not set a fixed fee.

    As there is some flexibility on what I charge.

     

    You go to your lawyer, your lawyer is a professional and the practice has a flat hourly rate to even just walk in the door & see them. You don't decide to pay or not pay your lawyer for their services. You must pay for that visit, even if you do not hire the attorney. I could take that same example and insert a doctor, a tax accountant, any professional, and it would be very similar.

     

    I consider my fees much more reasonable, and I do not charge based on cost of trip, hourly rate or profit in return of. I simply base my fees off of my services and the complexity it involves.

     

    Here are some possible per person assessed fee ranges:

    • $0: Worldwide Escorted Tour Research & Handling , but customization of pre/post could have fee.
    • $50-$100: Caribbean or Mexico Vacation Research & Handling 
    • $50-$100: Caribbean or Domestic Cruise Research & Handling - 
    • $100: International Cruise Research & Handling, customization of  pre/post land may involve additional fee being assessed
    • $50: Domestic Air Research & Booking 
    • $100: International Air Research & Booking 
    • $200: Worldwide Travel Tailoring & Designing of Itinerary and all services within  [Sometimes $100 if lite in aspect]
    Family trips and groups that have worked with me in the past have found a reduction in fees, or an agreed flat family/group fee being assessed. I'm always open to discussing my fees.
     
    I'm not going to devalue what I do, and I can refuse to work with you, if you feel this way.
     
    Once you become a client, I become your advisor for months and months, always here for you, always responding to you. We begin our advisor/client relationship, & we are in this together, with the hopes of our professional relationship lasting years & decades, even becoming friends. Many of my clients follow me on Facebook & or Instagram.
     
    My clients will receive free travel publications and newsletters frequently as part of being my client under a Virtuoso agency.
