Hotels & villas
River & ocean cruises

HOW IT CHANGES YOUR TRAVEL EXPERIENCE
Our clients often receive additional amenities and benefits from our Travel Partners.
You won't lose tens or hundreds of hours each trip starring at a screen with dozens of tabs open.
You won't go around in researching circles so many times that you miss the best opportunities.
Most likely you are taking a vacation to disconnect and unwind - you'll no longer start that off with months of stressful planning.
You'll never wonder what experiences or opportunities you didn't know about that you might have missed.
You won't waste money.
You won't waste time.
Your entire experience will be professionally planned and documented.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU DO IT ON YOUR OWN
hotel rooms that don't match the brochure-like images
Travel insurance that doesn't actually work when you need it
Waiting on hold for hours at a time with airlines, cruise lines, hotels, and tour companies when you have a question or need help
Wasted time trying to get from point A to B
Poor document preparation
not understanding entry protocols
Finding out activities and sites are closed or limited when you arrive
Struggling to find dining options in a limited capacity or busy seasons
Our planning fees are a one-time payment per household per trip. We will book all elements of your travel as listed above.
White Glove Planning Fee.
$150 / Household
This white-glove planning fee allows us to plan, research and book every element of your vacation for all-inclusive trips such as Mexico/Caribbean or cruises, all while staying within your budget and in alignment with your personal travel style. We'll arrange your custom itinerary, organize your excursions and transfers in your destination, and make sure you have access to support before, during, and after your return.
White-Glove Planning Fee - Hawaii and Europe
$300 / Household
This white-glove planning fee allows us to plan, research and book every element of your vacation for more detailed itineraries in Hawaii and Europe, all while staying within your budget and in alignment with your personal travel style. We'll arrange your custom itinerary, organize your excursions and transfers in your destination, and make sure you have access to support before, during, and after your return
Group Travel Planning
Starting at $350, Contingent on Group Size
Before bringing together a group of your favorite friends, family, or clients we will work with the group organizer to curate the perfect itinerary. Each traveling household will then work with us individually to align their travel arrangements with the group plan, while at the same time meeting their personal travel needs. This is a planning and research service only. Additional individual planning fees apply.
Fee to be determined on initial complimentary call
$150 / household
Need to cancel your trip? We will take care of all necessary details associated with canceling each element of your current booking. If you decide to cancel and rebook the same itinerary for different dates, we will waive this fee.
If you have never worked with a professional travel advisor before (or a great one), you'll find our process effective and efficient.
If we haven't already had a quick 15 minute phone call, this is where we listen to your ideas and travel goals.
Choose the planning package that suits you best, sign our simple contract and schedule your official planning meeting.
In this 60-90 minute meeting, we'll start the planning process. We will ask you a number of questions aimed at getting to know your travel preferences and style.
RESEARCH, PRESENTATION AND ADJUSTMENTS
We will present you with a full itinerary containing options for travel, activities and accommodation. Request any small adjustments before we lock in your trip itinerary.
WHILE YOU ARE AWAY
We will only ever be an email, text or call away if you need us. In the event that you need to activate your emergency support plan we will be on standby and ready to help.
LAST BUT NOT LEAST
The only feeling better than getting home is having your next trip in the pipeline. We'll get you scheduled for that next trip right away whether you want to take it in a month or a year.
