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....
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...

of our knowledge and expertise, and that is why we are constantly on the go. It's either to a seminar
sponsored by one of our suppliers to let us know what is new and exciting with their company and what they are
offering for the next season, or we're off to a ship inspection so that we can let you know first hand what to
expect and to let us know if you would, indeed, like that particular ship and itinerary. There
are times that we are even forced to sail on board a ship to be totally in the know - yes, it's a tough job, but
somebody has to do it! It's our way of keeping you up-to-date.
