HOW IT WORKS
Never worked with a travel agent before? Many clients first come to me because they are too busy to plan their own trip or are overwhelmed by the huge number of vacation options advertised online. Although my services are tailored to every client and every situation, the steps below should give you a sense of the typical vacation planning process.
STEP #1 - FILL OUT THIS FORM
The best way for me to understand what your travel needs and desires are is to get to know you. Once you fill out the travel form we can explore the type of trip you'd like and to learn more about. This also allows me to learn more about your travel style and giving me the ability to provide you with better potential vacation options. There is no cost involved with scheduling and having this conversation.
STEP #2 - I PROVIDE YOU WITH TRAVEL INSPIRATION
Within 1-2 days of our conversation, I will contact you with a handful of options that fit your dates, desires and budget. Ideally, one is perfect and we move ahead with booking your trip, but with your feedback and guidance, I’m happy to present additional ideas and/or refine the itinerary. This is particularly true with complicated, multi-destination itineraries, where there might be multiple hotels, tours, etc. to choose from in each destination.

STEP #3 - YOU CHOSE YOUR TRAVEL DESTINATION
My goal is to present enough options for you to review. Ideally, you can sit down with a cup of tea and go through the itineraries, pricing and options and decide what appeals to you the most. I am available to answer any questions or get you clarity on any details about a resort, tour, etc. to help you make the best decision.

STEP #4 - YOU LEAVE ALL THE DETAILS TO ME
Once you’ve decided on your destination, I handle securing flights, hotels, tours, trains and transfers to make your trip go smoothly. I will send you an invoice to review, and you will submit your deposit via an easy online form. I handle making the deposit, sending reminders if/when additional payments are due and preparing printed documents for you before your trip. In short, I look after all the moving pieces so you can focus on the countdown to your vacation.

STEP #5 - SAY HELLO TO YOUR VACATION
It's wheels-up on your vacation! Sometimes, things arise during your trip that require an extra set of hands. If an issue comes up and you need help, I can provide assistance or connect you with someone who can.
