Professional Travel Concierge

Let me start off by introducing myself.  My name is Lauren and I am the founder and owner of Platinum Dreams Travel Concierge as well as a wife and mother of 4.  Since I was a child I have always loved to experience new surroundings, cultures and adventures through travel. Travel is not only a passion but a way of life for me and my family.  Not only was I lucky enough to travel throughout my childhood and gain so much from it, I have also been fortunate to travel throughout my adult life with and without my family. 

My absolute favorite part of traveling is immersing myself in the surroundings of my destination and experiencing all the local culinary delights that are unique to an area.  If there is one thing in life that truly makes me feel a sense of bliss, it is traveling somewhere I have never been. 

I have been in the travel industry since 2017 and have an extensive knowledge and expertise in many areas of travel including luxury travel, honeymoons, family travels, solo travel, and celebration travels.  Through my personal and professional knowledge I am able to create a unique and personal experience right from our first initial consultation call until the moment you arrive home.  As a personal travel concierge I strive to curate the perfect trip tailored to your travel dreams and specific needs all while providing exceptional concierge services. 

If you are looking to fulfill your bucketlist and travel dreams, then I would love to work with you.  Whether you are wanting to sail in the south of France, sip wine in your private Villa in the rolling Hills of Tuscany, visit the European Christmas markets, a honeymoon in Bali, or just want to sit back in a beach side cabana at an all inclusive resort, I am here to assist you.  

What is a Professional Travel concierge?

Just as you would use a wedding planner to plan your wedding or speak with a legal adviser when seeking professional legal advice and guidance, a Professional Travel Concierge offers specialized services for your travels.Our professional services include the research and planning, customized proposals and itineraries, assistance before, during and after your travels, navigating you through the ever changing travel protocols, exit and entry requirements, extended hours outside of regular business hours to answer your questions  and concerns while in destination, Concierge services such as securing your dining reservations/arranging special requests/contacting your hotel before you arrive to ensure everything is in order for your arrival, advocating on your behalf with suppliers and tour operators, securing your booking and any activities in destination, curating the most personal of experiences with my expertise and knowledge along with great exclusive supplier relations to better serve you and bring you exclusive products only available to our clients.

Luxury Beach Destinations

Northern Lights Getaway

Reviewed By Jen - Cochrane, AB | Traveled to Whitehorse ~ Yukon ~ Canada
Lauren helped me build a Northern Lights Getaway to the Yukon for hubby's Christmas gift. Lauren took the time to understand Ray's Bucket List items and managed to create the perfect trip. Lauren was in touch with me during the entire build of the itinerary and even help to present it in a beautiful way for Christmas morning.
This trip was complex with a lot of logistical movement and it was pulled off seamlessly.
The lodge she selected (Mount Logan EcoLodge). Lauren listened carefully to my hesitancy to stay in lodge / family style environment and made the careful selection of Mt. Logan and assured me that we would love it.She was right!We were immediately welcomed and felt like old friends. And at the end it was an emotional goodbye, which shocked both Ray and I.
The "experiences" with the guides were all amazing.
Lauren reached out to check on us - and I loved that! She isn't a book and forget agent-she is invested and it shows! HIGHLY RECOMMEND! She knows her st

Reviewed By Tina - Beaumont | Traveled to Cancun ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
This was our first time booking with Lauren and I have to say that she made it so easy. All my documents, step by step instructions on what to do when we get there and what to do before we come home.

The resort was beautiful, I gave her my idea of what I wanted and she nailed it and LOVED every minute of our trip.

She was in constant contact with us to make sure things were going good and always available when I had a question.

She is amazing and looking forward to booking our next trip with her.

Reviewed By Sharon & Evan - Crowsnest Pass, AB | Traveled to Europe
Lauren painstakingly planned a 6 week trip for us to Italy, then on to South Africa, plus a week in Mauritius before heading back to Italy to board a transatlantic cruise back to North America.

The best travel agent EVER! Lauren has booked me on a amazing vacations. More importantly she was there every step of the way when things didn't go as planned! Unfortunately my last vacation booked had to be canceled because of the state of the world.
