Certified Travel Counselor

 
I've been in the travel industry for over thirty years, both in wholesale and retail travel. I currently manage the office in Tyler, TX. In addition to quoting prices like various impersonal websites do, I also recommend hotels, sight seeing, restaurants and activities based on your personal interests. I use many different resources when working with a client to make sure the trip they envision is the trip that comes to life. I want each client to have the perfect trip, every time.

I am often involved in various aspects of group travel. Cruise groups, Destination Weddings, Family Reunions, Church Groups, Senior Citizen Groups, Incentive Groups or simply a group of friends going somewhere together. It is extremely difficult, if not impossible, for a group trip to take shape just by everyone seeing something ...

Incentive Travel is my Specialty

I have worked with numerous companies on incentive travel. It is one of my favorite things to do because it's something that requires a lot of research, a lot of planning, a lot of detail and a lot of coordinating between me and the company's planner. The company wants to deliver ...

A dream trip for me and my daughter!

Velma has been such a support when I travel. I have someone to call when my plans don't work out to help me reschedule a flight or let a hotel know when I'll be delayed.
She really listens to my requests and give me good advice on those things we want to do. She also knows what other things we would enjoy and makes suggestions.

Cruisers for Life

I refer to Velma as my "GO TO" Cruise Pro!!! Her number has been shared more than any other in my contacts!! All I have to do is tell her when we want to go and she handles the rest!!! She has made ALL of our travel plans HASSLE FREE.and that is what you want!!! Everyone knows that we cruise a lot, what they are afraid of is the how, the where, the how much....I give them Velma's number and tell them how simple she makes things! We are hard working people and want a total relaxing vacation, Velma takes the headache out of the planning! She always goes above and beyond what she does for us! Thanks Velma for all of YOUR hard work for our fantastic vacations!!!!

Great Advice

Velma Tollison has given me wonderful advice concerning my travel locations. She made reservations for a hotel that became where I and my family stayed again and again. She knows what my preferences are and makes suggestions that are strictly for me. When I was stuck at the airport, she made the calls to get me back on track. I have told my friends about Velma and what an asset a travel agent can be.

Velma is a Great Help

There are many places we have been that would be worth seeing again, including China, Russia, Greece, Italy and New Zealand. We recommend that everyone should use a travel Agent when planning and traveling outside the country. We use Velma Tollison of Travel Leaders to assist us. She has been a great help when travel difficulties and glitches have occurred. "

Velma for all our Travel Needs

Several years ago, my husband and I flew to Paris during the Air Show. We had booked and prepaid a hotel through Velma. Upon arrival, we learned that our hotel was sold out and they had substituted another property for us. When we walked into the room and saw what looked like rat droppings in the corner and other disturbing things, we immediately called Velma back in the States! She called the tour company and told them that a change must be made immediately! A couple of hours later, we were sitting in our fabulous room at the Hilton overlooking the Eiffel Tower and enjoying our vacation. When we returned home, there was a refund check from the tour company for the total amount of the hotel cost! This is just one reason why we have called Velma Tollison for all our travel needs for over 15 years.
