3Are you a travel advisor or travel agent?

We are both actually, but we believe that the term travel advisor most appropriately describes us, as we offer more than just travel booking services. We design, plan, and book your vacation from beginning to end, as well as, inform and advise you on all your options throughout the process.

Travel insurance offers you trip protection. You are investing a lot of money into your trip experience and it is very important that you are covered in case there are medical and/or travel emergencies.

We recommend you purchase it as soon as the first deposit or payment is made toward the trip.
