Elaine Sklom

Punta Gorda, Florida Travel Agent

An independent agent with Nexion, LLC in Irving, TX, a Travel Leaders Network affiliate agency

Travel Professional and Specialist

I developed my love for travel as a child when my family would visit Greece every three years for two to three months to visit my grandparents.  Visiting in Europe allowed me to see other countries and sites.  A good nickname for me would be Aliti, which in Greek means wanderer or vagabond.  I have traveled to Canada, Mexico and other countries and I continually strive to offer my clients the best service when it comes to planning travel. I am constantly involved in some form of continuing education and I pride myself on my knowledge of the travel and cruise industry..  I opened my travel agency 10 years ago.


I work with all the major cruise lines that travel the oceans and rivers of the world.  In addition I work with companies that can provide tours, both escorted and customized, hotels, all-inclusive resorts, trains and other travel products. I serve people looking for advice as to what products, destinations and activities would best suit their travel wishes and to save them time, frustration and book the best vacation for them.  Vacations are meant to be memorable, fun, relaxing and as active as you wish or as sedentary as you wish.  I encourage individual research when contacting me but let me review your findings to see if they are the right fit for you.  Not all cruise lines, tour companies and hotels are for everyone.  


I am a Certified Travel Associate and an Accredited Cruise Counselor.  The Certified Travel Associate certification is from The Travel Institute and required months of study and taking of a proctored test.  The Accredited Cruise Counselor certification issued by the Cruise Lines International Association was obtained through course study, trade show attendance, experience of the products, ship inspections and bookings. I have traveled on over 30 cruises, visiting a variety of ports and experiencing many ships and lines in the industry and participated in familiarization tours of multiple products.


Favorite Places: Hands down… Greece with any Caribbean Island coming in a close second!  “I love the charm, food and culture of Greece.  There is a certain romance about traveling to this beautiful, historic country.  The people are warm and gracious. For sun and beach though, nothing beats the island sounds, warm sun and tropical breezes of the Caribbean”.

Elaine provided us with information on hotels near our cruise port near Rome, Italy. The travel agent at AAA could not provide information on this area and did provide us with major misinformation.

Elaine was detailed in the description of the areas, cost to travel from the airport to the hotel, distance to the ship, and ratings of the hotel. She provide excellent information on the immediate area and we found the details to accurate. Upon our return she inquired of our satisfaction.

I highly recomment Elaine for any travel plans. Give her your budget and define your expectations and she'll do a great job.
