I like to start with a phone call, when possible, to get to know you and your travel style better in order for me to make the best recommendations! I will ask you questions about past trips you’ve enjoyed, what type of experience you are looking to enjoy this time, and what would make this trip amazing for you.
The more details you share with me about what is important to you and your past experiences, the better I can tailor your travel to suit your needs! Luxury can mean different things to different people- for some, it is a posh 5* resort and for others, it is a private, customized tour to learn an area in depth.
I will consider several different options that I think will be best based on our “dreaming” session before, gathering info on pros/cons and pricing to present you, and we can narrow down from there. In this stage, if you find information online that you would like for me to vet, please share! My process is very collaborative and a great dialogue helps to ensure that you are satisfied with your trip.
Once we have decided on the perfect resorts, experiences, or cruise for you, I will begin the booking process. I will advise you up front of deposits due, deadlines, cancellation policies, etc. Where possible, I will check several different sources in order to secure the best value for you. Please note that prices and availability are always subject to change, and quotes may change until a deposit is placed.
Finally, I HIGHLY recommend trip insurance to protect your investment! No one ever anticipates an illness, family emergency, work, or even airline delays to interrupt their trip. But when they do, my clients always value having trip insurance! Please ask me about policy differences, pricing, and the best ones to suit your needs.
We have dreamed, planned, booked, and now it is time for you to enjoy your amazing trip! I always VIP my clients pre-arrival by reconfirming reservations, special occasions, and additional perks just before you depart. Thanks to my preferred relationships in the industry, my clients frequently enjoy amenities such as free breakfast, resort credits, and upgrades when available.
When possible, I will put you in touch with a local contact who can typically accommodate itinerary changes, questions, emergencies, etc. I will check in with you once you have arrived to make sure that everything is perfect!
Finally, once you return home from your trip, I will check in with you again. Any and all feedback is greatly appreciated! My guides and travel suppliers especially love hearing how well they performed for you.
And if you loved your trip and working with me, I would greatly appreciate if you SHARE your experience with your friends, co-workers, and family! A referral is the greatest compliment I can get.
