Frequently Asked Questions
I have never used a travel agent before. How does it work?

Do You Plan Other Destinations Besides Europe?
Although much of my business is focused on European destinations, I value my client relationships and realize Europe will not always be their next vacation destination. As a experienced travel agent that has booked everywhere from Asia to Africa to the Caribbean and beyond, my training on products and destinations worldwide has always been important to provide a high level of service for all of my clients. Because of this and my professional connections around the world, I am pleased to offer vacation planning services beyond Europe.
Do You Offer Travel Insurance in Your Packages?
Absolutely! Travel insurance is a very complex product and over 95% of my clients opt to protect their vacation investment by selecting a policy that is right for them. Since each trip has different terms and conditions and every client has personal coverage needs, I provide individual travel insurance recommendations tailored to clients.
