Worldwide Travel Consultant

I started in the travel industry over 25 year ago. I am extremely lucky, fortunate and blessed to say that “I love my job” and have had many opportunities to travel the world from Disney world to the furthest destination of Hawaii. With every reservation that I make, I give special attention to exactly what my clients are looking for and what is important to them.  Whether it is to the Caribbean, across the ocean to Europe, meeting Mickey & Minnie or just relaxing somewhere quiet and secluded, call me and I can make these dreams happen for you.

Great travel agent

Reviewed By jazz - The Villages, Florida | Traveled to Caribbean
We had a cruise cancelled and applied the credit to another cruise. We also booked a second cruise from a different cruise company which also had a credit to be applied. The cruise companies are short staffed and overworked. It takes a long time on hold to have a representative to answer the telephone even for a travel agent on hold. Being so busy, Shawna Garber was always cordial and took the time to address our concerns. Thank you Shawna for the great job you do. She will always be our travel agent.

Shawna is an excellent travel agent. What she says she will do, she does exactly that. Her word is good as gold. She is working on a cruise that the cruise line cancelled almost at the last minute and she is having the cruise line applying the fare to a later cruise. Thank you Shawna.
