I help empty nesters and busy entrepreneurs discover exciting new ways to travel beyond the typical all inclusive vacation. Crafting trips of a lifetime!
Travel is my passion and it is my personal goal to ensure my clients get the most enjoyment out of their hard earned vacation dollars.
Since planning my first leisure family trip several years ago I was hooked! I love researching and finding the best possible trip that fits within my budget, while satisfying my craving for adventure and seeing the world. My goal is to do the same for my clients.
While working with you, I ask lots of questions to establish exactly what you’re looking for in YOUR dream vacation or business trip, keeping in mind your preferred travel style, budget, preferences and timeline. I can help by removing the stress associated with researching, planning and taking care of all the little details to ensure worry free travel. Let’s face it – there are so many options out there – it is my job to help you weed through the options, focusing on what is important to you!
I take care of details, simplifying your travel planning so you can relax even before you start your vacation! This is a service that travel consultants provide, usually at no cost to you, so why not let ME do the work? I am available to answer your questions, no matter how silly, during the planning process. I am also available after hours when things go wrong before, during and after your trip. I am your advocate with tour operators and airlines…when things don’t go as planned.
As a certified travel consultant, I have access to hundreds of airlines and tour operators and I am continually in the know of all the latest promotions. If you find a package or offer on-line, I can most definitely access the same product at the same price, all the while providing you service above and beyond any that you would receive from an on-line booking engine.
Through my agency’s affiliation with Virtuoso, the leading luxury travel network of the world’s best travel agencies and travel advisors, I can often add perks and extra amenities otherwise not available through other non-Virtuoso agencies and definitely not through on-line agencies. You can find out more about Virtuoso at www.virtuoso.com. Check out my profile here.
I am also certified with the CITC (Canadian Institute of Travel Counsellors), registered with IATA (International Air Transportation Association), a member of ACTA (Association of Canadian Travel Agencies) and I am licensed with Saskatchewan Insurance Council to sell travel insurance in the province of Saskatchewan. Most recently, I have attained Accredited Cruise Counsellor (ACC) through CLIA – Cruise Line Industry Association. I maintain ongoing education standards as set out by the industry.
Travel is my passion, but it is also my job and I am continually upgrading my skills and knowledge to serve my clients better.
I have been very fortunate to visit many of the popular destinations where my clients are travelling, which adds to my ability to lead you to the best fit for your travel. If I haven’t PERSONALLY been there, I can draw from the experience of over 800 travel consultants across Canada within my agency network. This is an invaluable and personal service that on-line booking engines simply cannot provide!
