Your Luxury Travel Specialist

Allow me to introduce myself. I am Melanie Cole, a lifetime travel professional. I don’t mean to over dramatize, but, frankly, travel is my passion.  I’ve spent more than 30 years working in executive management with some of the best travel companies in the industry. I’ve spent my career on the inside, so I know how to get the most out of every single experience. I understand the value of true authenticity and I realize that not every trip is right for every traveler. There are so many kinds of travel, unique suppliers, hidden gems, secret treasures – and it’s my joy now to help you find the perfect match for you amid the myriad of choices a simple internet search can turn up.

I’ve been especially blessed to travel to some of the world’s most magical places and experience the people, culture, food, and landscapes they offer. My list is too long to bore you with here, but I’m delighted to share my experiences and recommendations with you as we formulate your own perfect vacation. Just a few of the places I have recently travelled are, Spain, Morocco, Ireland, Scotland, Italy, New Zealand and Hawaii. My life is rich with the brilliant memories I’ve acquired along my way – and I’m looking forward to helping you add to yours. Travel is the only thing you can buy that truly enriches your life!

If you’re like most travelers, your most cherished possessions are not things, they’re memories. Moments that take your breath away – sunsets that fill the sky with magic – shy smiles on the faces of village children – the incredible freshness of an alpine meadow – the awesome intimacy of rare wildlife in their native habitat.

At Insider Luxury Travel, I believe that’s why you travel, and why every moment of your trip deserves the special kind of attention that’s available only from travel professionals with insider access and knowledge. With more than thirty years of experience in the world’s finest hotels, cruise lines, private jet tours, and exclusive small group travel, I recognize that your travel preferences and choices should be as individual as your fingerprint. There is no one-size-fits-all answer when it comes to something as personal as the way you experience the world.

I also know it’s critically important to realize the highest possible value from every element of your trip – just because something is the most expensive doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the best. And I know that your time is as valuable as your money. I promise never to waste either. My years of insider experience have given me not only experience and understanding – it’s also brought  a lot of buying power.

Each experience I find for you has been fully vetted to make sure it meets our exacting standards, and yours. I will also provide special extra services and amenities throughout your experience. At no extra cost, of course

.• Complimentary breakfast each morning at our Preferred hotels

• Cabin upgrades on a cruise or shipboard credits

• Optional excursion voucher on a Guided Vacation

• Lower than published prices on International Business and First Class airfare

Think of me as your travel coach. I’ll make sure you get the experience you want and deserve for the best possible value. I know you want to research your trip for yourself online – and I highly recommend you do so. I also know there are many aspects of your experience you can’t find, organize, or even imagine that aren’t available online.

I am not your typical online travel agent. I am a  leading Luxury Travel Advisor, who specializes in customized travel arrangements for the discerning traveler. Ordinary travel agents make reservations, quote prices and sell pre-packaged trips, primarily relying on publicly posted reviews.

Insider Luxury Travel offers a VIP Traveler Program that is much more personalized and thorough. This exclusive and upscale travel program was designed for those who prefer the highest degree of personal attention, quality time, in-depth research and unparalleled expertise.

As your luxury travel advisor, I seek to create the perfect pairing between your unique desires and my knowledge of the best travel providers, guides, hotels and more. I will spend the time to understand you and what you would like to experience on your vacation so that I can recommend the right product to meet your needs. 

I look forward to helping you to create your trip of a lifetime!

Africa will capture your heart!

Sherl E.  Melanie is a consummate professional who is all of the above as well as enthusiastic and delightful to work with in planning our 6 week vacation. Her experience and connections got us some great deals and her experience and assistance were invaluable. I have already referred her out to 2 friends and will call her again for all of our travel needs!

Nicole S. August 14, 2018  I really enjoyed working with Melanie.She was extremely understanding when things had to be cancelled or changed. She completely understood my needs and wants and delivered exceptional service. Our trip to China was fantastic! I appreciated that we had a private tour with just our group of 7. I would recommend her to anyone!
