Leisure Specialist for Individuals and Groups
I specialize in creating leisure vacations for various types of clients, including individual travelers, couples, families, organizations and special interest groups (Wedding, Incentive +). I provide fledgling travelers with all of the information and resources that they need to feel comfortable and confident while on their trips, and I provide experienced travelers with insight and value that can help to enhance their overall experience. I am available to my clients from the beginning of the planning process until after they return home from their latest adventure.
What do I, as your Travel Consultant, bring to the table....? Well, my pictures are not photo-shopped...I've actually walked on the Great Wall of China, and surfed the beaches of Australia. I've posed with Goofy in Disneyland, and supped with fishermen on the beaches of the Algarve in Portugal. I've walked down Canal Street in Amsterdam, and cruised the Rhine River in Germany. I've zip-lined in the jungles of Costa Rica, and bartered with the vendors throughout Mexico. I sipped a Singapore Sling at Raffles in Singapore, and had the best massage of my life in Phuket....AND, I've spent 40 years procuring relationships, and vetting partners and suppliers worldwide, to more effectively share my experience with you, my client.
"A ship is safe in harbor, but that's not what ships are built for"....I am truly passionate about pushing personal boundaries and exploring the world around us. May we never stop learning and yearning to expand our horizons....
My Areas of Expertise
Well planned trips
A great dram of a holiday.
Awesome birthday trip!!
Once we were home Deb contacted us to get our feedback on our vacation. Deb goes above and beyond what I ever thought I would get and I would recommend her to all friends and family. I will definitely use Deb for my next vacation.
Thank you Melissa! It was a pleasure to work with you guys - and I'm over the moon happy you all had a great vacation, and have lasting memories! Keep in touch - and lets get working on this winter....word has it it's going to be a long one.. :)
Jamaican dream trip.
Deb took the time to understand our wants and needs, and provided us with great advice for our trip.(She also saved us a ton of money$$)
Thanks Chad! It was a pleasure working with you both....can't wait for the next epic adventure!! ;)
Great travel agent
Great Travel Agent!
I don't deal with the airlines, hotels, car rentals, shuttles or some big call centre for travel. I just call Deb and she answers the phone! Tell her where and when and its done..
I would seriously consider her if your ever looking to book a holiday.
Perfect Family Getaway
Jenn, it was absolutely my pleasure to work with you in securing this family getaway...I'm so glad you all had a fun time! The photos were awesome... Keep in touch, and let's do this again... ;) Cheers! Deb
Fantastic Family Trip with Teen
The booking was easy, and she offered support prior to departure and during the vacation time. I felt confident that if I needed anything, she would be there to help.
As a result, we had an incredible trip that exceeded my expectations! Thanks, Deb!
Scotland to the Fullest
Awesome Family Vacation!
Absolutely the best travel agent I have ever used.
The service I get makes me feel like some celebrity or rock star.
I've booked 3 trips to Cancun, one to Scotland, 3 or 4 trips to Vegas and I can't remember how many domestic trips to.
Way easier than even going on a airline web site and spend a hour checking flights, prices, seats, blah, blah.
Now i just phone or text Deb and tell her where I want to go and when. She knows where I want to sit, what hotel I would like or not, what kind of car..everything! Then I get the cost, send the money transfer or throw it on my cc, that i trust her will and its done. No fuss, no muss and I usually get better deals that if i looked around myself, because she's always watching for deals.Even better... If there is a problem while I'm traveling, guess who I call? And I'm not pressing 4 for english and on hold for a hour.
The one trip in particular when I took the whole family down to Dreams in Cancun. Not one hitch!
Thanks Dave! Always my pleasure... Talk to you soon... :)
Celebrating Grad at the Happy Place on Earth
And it's been a very enjoyable experience - less than 2 days after contacting Deb, our vacation was planned and booked, we're very happy with the service and the costs of our Disney adventure!!
As well as receiving a very detailed email outlining all the aspects of our trip, Deb has also been quick to respond to any questions that we've had and for someone like me who's very detail oriented, this is an invaluable service and will no doubt help me relax & enjoy a wonderful holiday!
Now.......the wait until it's time to go.
Amazing EVERY TIME!
Our get away
The day we were to leave, my father passed away. Deb handled the rearrangements of our trip and with the insurance company. I am so thankful that she was involved and took care of EVERYTHING for us. We wouldn't have been able to go at a later date if she wasn't involved as I was in no state to do this on my own. She also helped me with all the insurance paper work and I was refunded all my $.
We will use Deb again for our next trip and I highly recommend her to anyone that is planning a trip. You can't go wrong.
Thank you Maria! It was indeed my pleasure to work with you - and I look forward to planning your next 'family adventure'.
Sometimes, not spontaneous to communicate, but this has not caused me any problems.
Shitz and Gigz...Creating Life Long Memories
Deb has also booked vacations for some of my friends and they have been extremely satisfied as well. One of my friends had an death in the family when she was suppose to depart and Deb totally handled everything and my friend was still able to go have her vacation a few days later stress free.
I feel very privileged to have someone with the knowledge, compassion, and experience taking care of me and my family when we travel.
