Luxury Travel, Alaska & River Cruise Specialist
"A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step" is what comes to mind when I think of travel.
I have been in the industry for 14 years and my thousand miles of travel includes glacier viewing in Alaska, river cruising through Germany and France, sipping wine in Italy, snowmobiling in Iceland, kissing the Blarney Stone in Ireland, having a safari picnic in South Africa, escorting a group through Poland, and enjoying the many beaches of the Caribbean, Mexico and Hawaii.
Whether your next thousand miles involves a romantic getaway, luxury, family, adventure or relaxation; I have ideas, contacts and experience to make your dream vacation come true!
Recent Travel Experience
My most recent trip was setting sail from Singapore on a round trip cruise throughout Asia. Visits included the Gardens by the Bay, a Mekong River cruise in our Vietnamese straw hats, a rickshaw ride in Bangkok and a night cruise past the skyline of Hong Kong.
This was a great way to see Asia from our floating hotel and the comfort of unpacking once. Another memory that will be cherished.

The best year-over-year vacation planning ever!
Jody puts together a fantastic collection of options to choose from; she is VERY quick in providing information and replying to questions; and when we shift directions, she could not be more cheerful and happy to help.

A Most Memorable Trip
Jody goes above and beyond for a smooth vacation!
Jody has been a joy to work with. My family and I have booked multiple vacations through her and she always makes sure that we are taken care of. She goes above and beyond to make sure our vacation goes smoothly and that we have an excellent experience. She always responds to our emails right away - even if she is on vacation! I would recommend Jody to anyone! Thank you again for all of your hard work!
Great Partner when Planning Travel
We've worked with Jody to schedule our yearly vacation for the past 4 years. Every year I send her a general overview of what we are looking for and she finds us different options that are reasonable. Whenever we have questions, she doesn't hesitate to answer all of them and in a timely manner. Jody is a great partner when planning your vacation. I highly recommend reaching out to her for your next vacation. I promise that you won't be disappointed.
We found Jody very helpful in organising our cruise in May with Royal Caribbean. Jody had been on the same cruise herself and recommended it and even shared her photos of her experience on the cruise.
The Next Best Experience
I have been working with Jody for many years for my personal/family travel and vacation planning needs. Her experience, attention to detail, and our personal relationship shapes her understanding of our travel preferences and goals. Jody makes sure we have all the information we need to make our decisions for flight, hotel, transportation, and excursion reservations. She has booked our travel all of over the world from our honeymoon, our baby moons, our friend trips, and personal getaways. It is always fun to challenge Jody in helping us find our next best experience and she always comes through.
Honeymoon of a lifetime!
Jody was super easy to work with. She helped plan our honeymoon of a lifetime. She was easy to get a hold of and any request or question we had about our trip was answered in a timely fashion with many options so we could make the best decision for us. We will definitely go with Jody for any future trips we have. We are extremely satisfied with how easy the planning process was and how amazing and organized she made our travel plans, it was not only a dream vacation, but very relaxing due to her organization of the trip agenda.
Very Professional and Helpful!
We have been working with Jody for many years. She has planned numerous vacations for us to many locations. We find her to be very professional and helpful in organizing our trips. We would highly recommend her to anyone who needs travel arrangements.
As we were planning our first big cruise to Alaska with Norwegian Cruise Line the help we received from Jody was always immediate and extremely helpful. She also suggested the excursions that would be the most valuable for our experience. Thank you Jody for making our Alaska cruise a great success.
Jody’s experience and knowledge proved critical in providing an exceptional traveling experience. Her ability is so beneficial to our vacations, we tell her our time frame and expectations and she never fails to provide an unforgettable experience.
Jody is a five star agent!
Jody has put together trips for our family for over five years now. Her care in working with us to put together the perfect trip is unsurpassed. When Jody moved to Travel Leaders, we followed her (the new agent we were assigned to at Jody’s prior agency, fell way short of the care we experienced with Jody). The family vacations Jody has arranged for us included cruising the Mediterranean for 16 days, Alaska for a week at sea and a week on land, Africa for two weeks (Tanzania, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Zambia and South Africa), Costa Rica for two weeks and South America for 18 days (Peru, Argentina and Brazil)! Jody can help with the chose by, relaxing Caribbean vacations as well as take you around the world. We are presently planning a trip to Egypt and the Middle East with Jody. Jody is a five star agent.
Fishing Trip to Alaska!
Jody has assisted me on 2 occasions lately. One is planning a Danube River cruise to take place in 2020 for a rather large group of about 28 travelers. She has been very helpful & knowledgeable in organizing the trip. Questions are always answered quickly & professionally. The second occasion was a fishing trip to Alaska. Jody procured air flights for 4 of us at a better price than we could have gotten on our own & coordinated the logistics for everyone coming from different towns. We did this trip in July & everything went seamlessly.
Very happy with our experience!
We have booked with Jody on several occasions and have always been very happy with the experience we have had. She is attentive to our questions and our needs. She will give advice and share her own experience when asked. We appreciate her very much!
Joday is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!!!
Your Experience: Jody is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!!!!! My husband and I have relied on Jody for ten years to plan our annual vacations. Every other year we take our five kids and their significant others in vacation, and Jody is an incredible advisor. She is thorough, creative, helpful, patient, quick to respond, friendly, knowledgeable. On the alternate years, it’s just me and my husband. Still, we rely on Jody to make our trip perfect. She’s like family to us!
She's the "best"!
Your Experience: Our family has used Jody as our travel consultant to research and book our travel for many years. Whether it be all-inclusive winter vacations, Alaskan land & sea package or a family Disney experience, she is experienced and very efficient at researching, recommending and booking great experiences. She is right there to assist with any issues that might occur. Over the years, we have referred many friends to Jody, and all have thanked us. She's the "best"!
Destination Experience so valuable!
Your Experience: Jody has been setting-up our mid-winter vacations since 2010. We've been fortunate to have been able to draw upon her destination experience and supplier relationships to visit many different all-inclusive resorts, in the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Costa Rica, and Mexico. The resorts have ranged from luxury , to mid- range, to economy. All have met our expectations. Thank you, Jody, for your excellent attention to our changing likes/dislikes/needs over the years. We look forward to our continuing relationship.
Friendly and professional!
I am extremely satisfied with Travel Leaders. My travel advisor Jody Piotter has proven to be very courteous and helpful from the beginning . She was professional and friendly helping me book my last two excursions.
I got Jody’s name from a friend that is in charge of travel at her company. When I contacted Jody, I really didn’t have a place in mind, but gave her specifics that my wife and I wanted in our vacation. Jody went to work for us and gave me so many options(places, price, departure cities, etc.). Once we chose the location Jody took care of everything for us and was in constant contact with me. When I had questions, she was quick to respond. Everything went smoothly and she even got in touch with us on our vacation to see how things were going. In addition, she knew it was our anniversary and had a sign, bottle of champagne and some treats waiting for us. I highly recommend Jody for your trip.
Jody was very knowledgeable and offered choices for air/hotel/transportation that fit our budget on a recent cruise she booked for us. Very professional, and willing to spent time to find out what we wanted from the trip to insure everyone would have a good experience.
Cruising to Caribbean and Alaska
Once again, Jody came through for us! We just came home from another 2 wonderful weeks in Alaska. Jody has arranged 3 trips now to Alaska, and numerous cruises to the Caribbean. She's knowledgeable, makes the whole process effortless, always getting us the best vacation for our budget and a pleasure to work with. We will always book with Jody. We're planning a 2021 cruise to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary and plan on reaching out to her soon to start planning. Thank you Jody!
Professional and Extremely Helpful
We have had the privilege of working with Jody on numerous vacations. She has always been very professional and extremely helpful with making our travel arrangements. As we look toward future travel we will definitely contact Jody to make our arrangements.
Ease of Travel
We have always enjoyed the vacations. The plane, hotel transfers etc, we have never had a problem. It's nice to have everything set up ahead of time.
Trust in Jody!
Your Experience: We have trusted Jody to put together our winter getaway for many years now. She has never disappointed and delivered more then expected. I know with one email, we will get exactly what we want, when we want it, absolutely hassle free. Nothing but the highest recommendation for the great work Jody does
The Best Travel Advisor
Jody Piotter is by far hands down the best travel advisor that I have worked with in helping me plan my vacation. She met with me any time I needed help with my itinerary. She is always super friendly, positive and willing to go above and beyond. She researched hotels, car rentals, excursions, etc and narrowed them each down to 2 or 3 choices making it easy for me to pick from. Once I gave her my choice, she booked everything with and for me. She had everything printed off and organized in a file folder in order of the dates on our vacation. I would highly recommend Jody Piotter to be your travel advisor as well. You won't find anyone better.
Jody cares about her clients!
I have worked with Jody for many years and find her knowledge, can-do attitude and attention to detail to be invaluable. Jody truly loves what she does and cares about her clients. In addition, Jody has solved some tricky travel issues for our family quickly and at all hours of the day.
Wealth of Knowledge
There is no travel agent like Jody! She is always beyond helpful with answering questions, is a wealth of knowledge, and every trip she has helped with has been a blast! Why look anywhere else. Love Jody!!!!
We booked our 25th Anniversary travel through Jody in April. She took care of everything for us from take off to landing. We had an issue with our flight getting cancelled and she was right on top of it and had us on another flight. We had a worry free vacation thanks to Jody!
My wife and I decided to take a quick, short vacation to Mexico. I contacted Jody and she found us a great deal that was just what we were looking for. All of our arrangements were taken care of and the trip was spectacular. We've worked with Jody often and always been well taken care of. Thanks Jody!
