Dreaming about what is next!

If it weren't for Cate we would not have had an anniversary get away at all... let alone leave the country and experience a whole new word together! We are so busy between our business and our five children, and we unfortunately think of vacation after it's too late--celebrating our anniversary is no different. Starting with proactive outreach months earlier, asking a lot of questions to learn about who we are, and LISTENING, she built us the perfect simple get away! We loved the excursions and exploring restaurants (and the car waiting for us when we landed!). But what we loved most was a total surprise... the hotel was beautiful and Cate surprised us with a few "Virtuoso Upgrades." Because of Cate and her Virtuoso upgrade, we woke up each morning in a select suite and sat on an exclusive deck at the Fairmont overlooking the water, eating, drinking and just talking about life... and our next vacation!! Thank you Cate! We can't wait to see what she has in store for us next!

Travel insurance can save the day accidents can happen anywhere, and many claims are due to unforeseen circumstances.

Travel insurance can save the day

Excellent article about the importance of travel insurance...if you travel, do yourself a favor and take a minute or two to read this. As a travel professional I quote an insurance policy for my clients for every single trip. When I travel, I never leave home without it.... accidents can happen anywhere, and many claims are due to unforeseen circumstances.

7 Times It's Worth Using a Travel Agent

At least 7 reasons just for starters..... In an age when booking a vacation online can be done in the same amount of time it takes to order a used copy of "The Girl on the Train," you would be right in assuming that using a travel agent is a thing of the past.

New Year's Resolutions For Travelers: Hottest Travel Trends 2017

Great's time to start planning that trip, and time to work with a travel advisor. Quoting Forbes here...

"Start Using A Travel Agent: Seriously, I can’t understand why some well-heeled frequent travelers still don't. I’ve written at length on this topic. If you like to go to worse places, stay at worse hotels, overpay, miss out on free upgrades and VIP extras, get less out of each vacation, pay more for plane tickets, use more miles to upgrade and not be able to get into your first choices of hotels or dates, then keep doing it yourself". You can only take so many vacations in a year. To help you narrow the field and give you inspiring ideas, I’ve rounded up the hottest travel trends, the trips to consider taking in 2017.

As users tire of online, the humble travel agent makes a comeback

Travel advisors....the hottest new thing that never went away! We are being "re-discovered" by even the savviest of travelers. It is no longer a "badge of honor" to book your own travel...that's so 90s. Anyone can click on a website and even do their own research, but it takes a real understanding of "you don't know what you don't know" to know when to call on a professional. Frustrated by the overload of information on travel sites, more than 9 million people will use a travel professional to help book a trip this year.
