I’ve never used a Travel Consultant before – what can I expect?
Each travel itinerary that I plan is tailor-made and customized for you and your travel needs. All planning services first begin with a consultation, then depending on your wants or needs, your planning services can be as simple or as detailed as you prefer. If you’d rather be more hands-on I can assist in planning the basics and leave you to the rest, or if you’d prefer to sit back and enjoy the ride I can take care of every detail from A to Z. Each vacation is unique just like you! For more examples of what my services may include, click here.
Do you charge fees for your services?
All vacation planning services begin with a FREE consultation. During this consultation, we will discuss your travel needs, desires, go over your travel preferences, and wish list, I’ll learn about your personal travel style, what you like, budget ranges, and more. Together we’ll discuss some options and general price ranges, and you can ask questions. If, based on our conversation, I determine that a planning fee may be necessary for the scope of work your planning services may entail, we can discuss a planning agreement at that time and you will be charged to move forward with your custom vacation planning experience.
How soon in advance should I plan my vacation?
Generally the sooner the better! It is never too early to begin planning your trip and many travel suppliers allow you to make payments towards your trip – making budgeting along the way that much easier! Typically with cruising the sooner you plan in advance the larger the availability of staterooms will be available to you. In addition, if planning a trip to Disney World you can begin making your advance dining reservations 180 days prior to the start of your trip. However, if planning a last minute get-away, I’ll make sure to do my best in securing all your “must-haves” as well!
Do you plan trips for destinations other than Disney?
Yes! I love planning a variety of trips around the globe! I have years of experience working with different cruise lines, all-inclusive resorts, and have helped plan a variety of Group, Family Reunion, Honeymoon, and Anniversary trips. I have also planned a number of Destination Weddings as well. I also have a strong affinity for river cruising and this is one of my new favorite ways to travel and see the world! If you are interested in planning any type of trip feel free to contact me, and if for any reason I feel unqualified when planning a trip to a specific destination I will make sure to refer you to someone who is.
