FAQs

How much does it cost to work with a travel agent?

Our fees vary based on how much or how little assistance you may need in planning your trip. We provide services from initial destination research all the way up to planning a full destination wedding or corporate retreat.


How does a travel agent get paid?

Depending on the service you need, there may be an initial “discovery fee” for research time, travel planning, and in-trip support. When booking through preferred travel partners like hotels and tour companies, I will receive a commission for my services directly from the vendor.

Initial fees may be waived for return clients


Can travel agents get me a deal?

We always love a deal and will try to get the lowest possible cost for your travels. However, as the saying goes, you get what you pay for. Prices will vary depending on the type of property you plan to stay in. As certified travel specialists, we may also be able to negotiate extra perks for your vacation that otherwise would not be possible.


What type of travel do you plan?

We can assist you with any type of travel planning needs. From booking flights to planning a family vacation, or even a fitness retreat or training conference, we have you covered!


Do I need travel insurance?
