What You Gain From Us

Get excited and start dreaming about your next vacation!  Our goal is to work with you to take the time-consuming stress away and customize that vacation you've been dreaming of taking.

Unlike the large online travel agencies, we value our relationship with our client not just at the booking process.  Your expectations are what we strive to exceed.  We want to provide service to you from the presentation of proposal until you return home.  We'll do this by:

  • Gathering your vacation wish list items
  • Researching the right destination within your budget
  • Present vacation proposals for you to choose from
  • Tweak any items in your preferred proposal
  • Book your vacation
  • Send you additional information about your destination
  • Monitor any changes that occur with flights
  • Communicate with hotel management about your stay
  • Prepare your documents for travel
  • Continue to monitor any changes that may occur before or during your travel
  • Assist in resolving any issues that may arise during your stay
  • Welcome you home from your dream vacation!

Payment options

If you choose not to pay the full amount of your trip at booking, most packages can be reserved simply with a deposit.  Since each trip is customized to your needs, the deposit will vary.  Once booked, you have the opportunity to make payments toward your balance.  No interest and YOU choose the payment amount!  It just needs to be paid in full by the final payment date.  All payments must be made with credit or debit card.  Contact us if you have any questions about the payment options.
