A vacation is a terrible
thing to waste...
And that's why you need a
" personal travel planner."
Have you ever wondered why you
should use a travel agent?
For years now, folks have been able to go directly to
the airlines and book flights. There was a time when a
passenger had few decisions to make.
You had First Class or Coach,
Day or Night. Yet you still used the services of a
local travel agent. Why? Because of their expertise, their
service and their knowledge that went beyond just booking that
particular airline ticket. And that's why folks still use
a travel agent today.
It may be the worst of times
to get great service....
it may be the best of times to find just the right travel
agent who can truly help with the details and to
understand your needs. You want someone you
trust and who cares. We sincerely care what
happens while you are on vacation, and you can trust us to take
care of all the details involved before departure to make your
trip the best ever - be it a short weekend getaway just
to unwind or the trip of a lifetime!
Granted, you could go directly to the
internet and try to do things yourself...
I do it all the time. I think the internet is
absolutely amazing! The information is incredible! In
fact, there is so much information available to us now that it
is sometimes just too frustrating and time-consuming to go
through it all. If you have the time, great! But
trying to remember where you last saw a "deal" and then to see
if it is still available is something else. That's where
we come in. We help you sort it all out and save you time
which could be better spent on other endeavors - like golf,
watching your favorite sport on "the tube", or spending
valuable time with family...

tour companies for a long time. You would think we would
