Frequently Asked Questions

Vacation left

Do you offer travel packages?

Definitely! We love bundling items for our clients and removing the stress of travel planning. We have access to a wide range of travel partners to deliver you everything from airline itineraries and hotels to excursions, trains, ferry transfers, pre- and post-cruise accommodations, etc.

Do you specialize in locations or types of travel?

Both! Our consultants have many years of experience and regularly travel the globe themselves. Each consultant tends to specialize in certain regions (e.g., Australia, Italy, etc.) and products (e.g., river cruises, safaris). We will direct you to the consultant most suited to craft your trip. 

How is your agency compensated?

We are compensated in two ways: consulting fees from customers and commissions paid by our vendor partners. We have long-term clientele who trust us to recommend the best options for themselves and their families.

How far in advance should I begin planning?

Many of the world’s most fascinating & exclusive destinations – including Africa, the Galapagos, and Australia – often book up 12-15 months in advance, as well as peak travel times. If you are planning for a milestone celebration or a specific destination, earlier is usually better.

We find the sooner you can make a decision on a “hot” destination, the better chance we have of ensuring you have the hotels, tours and experiences you want.

Most airline schedules are released 330 days out so flights can be booked after that point.

Should I purchase travel insurance?

We highly recommend purchasing travel insurance, as it helps to protect you and your travel investment. Most travel insurance plans include benefits such as trip cancellation, interruption or delays, medical, dental, emergency medical transportation, lost luggage, missed connections, itinerary changes, and more. We have access to various travel insurance policies, so you’ll be able to choose the option that best fits your needs.

Why should I work with a travel agent?

While clients have an abundance of choices across the internet, our agents have unique experience and knowledge to help you craft your perfect vacation. We assist you throughout the trip planning process and intervene when you encounter unexpected issues while traveling. Our strong relationships with our travel partners ensures that you have a VIP experience and receive special amenities (i.e. complimentary room upgrade, wine in your room, etc.) whenever possible.

With our team, you always have an expert to talk to about trends, hotspots, and insider information. Our agents are educators who advocate on your behalf to save you time, money, and headaches, while delivering travel experiences that you cannot get on you own.
