WHY SHOULD I BOOK WITH YOU INSTEAD OF AN ONLINE BOOKING SITE, OR DIRECTLY WITH A RESORT?
I provide you with exceptional personal assistance before, during and after your vacation! Budget is important and we strive to get your dream vacation within the budget you've set for it. We provide honest advice about all resorts and destinations to help you choose the perfect resort for you. You also benefit from our extensive network of personal connections. We have an easier time getting you perks (like getting your room upgraded)!
WHEN DOES IT MAKE SENSE TO USE A TRAVEL PROFESSIONAL?
All trips are not created equal and yes, there are times where it may make sense to do-it-yourself. Are you planning go to your cousin's wedding in Dallas and all you need is a hotel room near the reception? (no activities, dining recommendations, other travel arrangements required) That sounds like the perfect time to turn to the internet! Planning to spend two weeks touring London and Paris this summer and you've never been there before? That calls for a professional! Someone who can direct you to the best places to stay, the "can't miss" dining locations the locals love, arrange private tours without the long lines and crowds to the must-see attractions, and make sure that your time (and money!) are spent experiencing the "best of the best" while you are there.
WILL I PAY MORE FOR VACATIONS IF I BOOK THROUGH YOU THAN AN ONLINE BOOKING SITE?
Majority of the time, no! The deposit requirements are set by the resorts and the tour operators we book through. Deposit rates vary based on the resort or package you select, and the time you are traveling.The deposit is made via First in Flight Travel directly with the resort or tour operator. This way, you are assured that your deposit is applied directly to your vacation at the time of booking. Most vacation package require that you pay the balance 45 days prior to your arrival.
DO I NEED TRAVEL INSURANCE?
Travel insurance is available and recommended to protect your travel investment. Many trips, such as tours and cruises, involve non-refundable funds paid months in advance. Travel insurance protects you from losing this investment. Perhaps even more important is the 'during travel' coverage and assistance that comes with the top-flight insurance companies we carry. Trip interruption due to illness or unforeseen circumstances can be very expensive, and medical care abroad is often not covered by domestic insurance plans.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO CONTACT A TRAVEL PROFESSIONAL?
As soon as you are serious about planning your trip. The sooner, the better. Whether it's last minute or planned 18 months in advance, the more time you can give us, the better! You'll need to be sure of a few details such as the dates (or date range) you wish to travel, the number of people in your travel party including the ages of any children going with you, your anticipated budget, and an idea of what you'd like to experience. Your travel professional will be happy to recommend specifics based on the information you provide.
Due to the significant time we dedicate to each itinerary, the one thing every travel professional will ask is that you are serious about the trip you are asking us to plan. No matter how far our the travel dates are, we respectfully ask that you only ask us to begin planning for travel you intend to book soon.
DO YOU BOOK VACATIONS FOR PEOPLE OUTSIDE OF YOUR GROUPS AND DESTINATION WEDDINGS?
Absolutely! Submit a request to get a custom quote for your next vacation. We specialize in all-inclusive resort packages for all ages, honeymoons, couples trips, international tours, girlfriend getaways and cruises for all!
WHO ARE YOUR GROUPS FOR?
Anyone can join one of our groups! But our ideal clients are couples 25-45 in a committed relationship or married looking to have a good time and connect with like minded people. We do trips and retreats dedicated to couples only, family vacations to bring the kids and other family members along, and every now and then a girls/guys only getaway!
DO I HAVE TO HAVE MY OWN GROUP TO BOOK ONE OF YOUR FEATURED TRIPS?
NO! The beauty in joining one of our featured trips is you get to meet new people with similar #travelgoals, #couplegoals, and/or #familygoals! BUT, if you want to invite your whole crew and do your own thing, that works too!
I HAVE MY OWN GROUP AND WE'RE INTERESTED IN ONE OF YOUR FEATURED TRIPS, BUT THE DATES DON'T WORK US. CAN WE CHANGE THE DATES?
Possibly! I can always check availability for your requested dates and group size and if there is availability, I can get your group booked with the new dates. Pricing may be different than what I've contracted for the dates shown on my group.
Destination Wedding questions
HOW DO DESTINATION WEDDINGS WORK?
A destination wedding is an opportunity for couples to celebrate their marriage at a gorgeous destination of their choosing away from home. Our couples get married all over the world, in stunning locales like the Caribbean, Mexico, Hawaii and Europe. Destination weddings can be intimate (just the two of you), limited to close family and friends, or a grand affair with hundreds of guests.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I BE PLANNING MY DESTINATION WEDDING ?
We always advise couples to begin the process as soon as possible. 9-15 months is an ideal amount of time for securing the best travel rates and number of rooms needed, particularly with large groups.
HOW MUCH DOES A DESTINATION WEDDING COST?
Most of the time, destination weddings are less expensive than a domestic wedding. Many all-inclusive resorts offer pre-designed wedding packages (don’t worry, most can still be customized!) all for one bundled price that is usually cheaper than a banquet hall’s package at home. While pricing will depend on your resort selection, number of guests and specific needs, The average cost of a destination wedding for most couples has been under $10,000 when considering an average number of 40 guests.
WHICH DESTINATIONS & RESORTS DO YOU WORK WITH?
I currently specialize in Caribbean & Mexico destination weddings. I work with a wide variety of all-inclusive resorts to find that right one for every budget and wedding size! I can also handle accomodations for some European destinations if you've already selected your venue. Reach out to discuss your needs.
