Lesley Augustine

Flower Mound, Texas Travel Agent

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

Cruise and Vacation Specialist

When you decide to plan your next vacation, the possibilities are endless and it's exciting to think about where you will venture to next.

As a travel professional with more than 9 years’ experience in the industry, I specialize in helping my clients narrow down their options, from land tours to the perfect cruise. I help them understand their choices, and ultimately plan a one-of-a-kind vacation.

My favorite destinations to book are also the places that I love to explore myself.

  • There's nothing more exhilarating than a tour of Europe
  • Dining on true Italian food in Italy
  • Relaxing weeks in Mexico, the Caribbean or Hawaii

Italy - My clients also love the trips that I book for them to Italy. My personal travels to Italy have given me the experience, contacts and knowledge that enable me to recommend the most luxurious resorts, the most delicious dining opportunities and the must see as well as the unique excursions. 

I am certified with all of the major cruise lines and hotel chains, and I am committed to expanding my professional credentials through extended learning opportunities.

Ultimately, I want to make each experience memorable and magical for my clients.

As a travel professional, my goal is to incorporate those special moments into each itinerary that can't be found anywhere else. For instance, I once helped plan a honeymoon to Australia and New Zealand for a young couple looking for adventure. They were able to explore glaciers and hot springs in New Zealand, and go snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef.

There are always a million reasons not to do something, and it can be intimidating to plan an extensive vacation itinerary. However, I always tell my clients that they are more likely to regret not going on a vacation rather than taking a chance on the trip of a lifetime.

These are the moments that you will remember forever, so take advantage of the opportunity today.

Lesley knows Italy

Reviewed By Anna Emmel - Flower Mound, TX | Traveled to
We found Lesley to be our Italy expert and were totally dependent on her choices as to the things we would want to see and do over there. She took the time to meet with us and discussed all our options as to the places we wanted to go and the things we would want to see. Our vacation was a dream come true and we are SO grateful for the excellent job Lesley did in booking our trip, from start to finish, as well as keeping us updated on all flight changes, hotel changes, etc. We would definitely use Lesley's services again in booking future trips - we were well taken care of.

Lesley made our honeymoon a dream come true!

Reviewed By Nick - Lewisville, TX | Traveled to
Lesley made our honeymoon everything we could hope for and more! We've never worked with a travel agent before, so we were so floored by how easy she made everything: no worries about planes, rental cars, accommodations, etc. She worked with us to figure out the ideal location, setting, etc., and we couldn't have been more thrilled with her choices! To top it all off, she was on standby at any time during our trip in case we had any questions or issues. Hands down, book a trip with Lesley - you'll be so grateful you did!

Incredibly Helpful, Efficient and Organized!

Reviewed By Patty - Woodridge, Illinois | Traveled to
Leslie was excellent to work with! I was planning a trip to meet my daughter who was studying abroad in Vienna, Austria and Leslie coordinated everything for us! I wanted to spend a few days in Vienna with my daughter so she could show me the city and all of her favorite places she had discovered, spend a few days in Venice, Italy and then we wanted to go on a cruise to the Greek Islands! Leslie gave me a lot of options to chose from in booking our hotels, flights, and cruise and everything was fantastic! This was the best trip I've ever been on and spending 2 weeks with my daughter seeing some of the most beautiful places in the world was priceless! A week before I left, I received in the mail an organized booklet that had everything in it we needed, from our confirmation numbers to ideas for places to visit in each location we visited! When we arrived in our suite on the NCL Cruise, there was "Welcome Aboard" plate from Leslie of chocolate covered strawberries which was a nice surprise! Thank you, Leslie- you planned an amazing trip for us!

She planned our 25th anniversary cruise

Reviewed By Lin likes to travel - Lisle, IL | Traveled to
Lesley planned a Mediterranean cruise for us and another couple so she had to satisfy requests from 4 people. She did a great job. We chose our shore excursions on-line, before leaving home, after reviewing the many options. Lesley looked at the excursions and convinced us to make some changes such as adding Florence to our Pisa day. She was right. We would have been disappointed if we had missed Florence. Lesley has been to so many places so she truly has personal experience that is so helpful.

Travel like a Queen when you book with Lesley!

Reviewed By Bev - Downers Grove, IL | Traveled to
Lesley takes all the hard work away, so you can really enjoy your trip. Most recently she worked with my husband on planning our Hawaiian trip. Everything was great, from the Limo meeting us at the airport, the car rental the scooter for my mom. Her booklet outlining everything. The most memorable trip was our cruise to the mediterranean for my parents 50th anniversary. She booked us on private tours that were perfect for the 6 of us. They were 10 times better then what the cruise line offered. Her connections are endless and if she doesn't know something she is persistent in finding the answer. Love Lesley. Miss seeing her. now that she is in Texas.

Lesley was wonderful in helping us plan 2 vacations: 1 was a couples getaway to Cancun and she picked the perfect spot for us- She listened to all our wants and requests and found the perfect vacation getaway and made the whole experience wonderful. Every detail was planned which made things easy and simple on our part. Vacation #2 was a family trip to Disney- Any question I had- Lesley either knew or got back to me quickly with a response from Disney. Lesely went above and beyond and makes sure you have all you need for a successful trip.

Lesley is planning a second cruise for eight of us.

Reviewed By Colleen - Chicago suburb | Traveled to
When Lesley planned a Baltic cruise for six of us in 2013, we were impressed by her efficiency, attention to detail and desire to get things just right for her clients. Our trip was wonderful! She is planning a Mediterranean cruise for eight of us this September. We have appreciated her patience working with a group, some of whom have different airline reservations, shore excursions, and hotels before and after the cruise. Lesley is taking care of everything! She is personable, honest, available, and easy to work with.

She takes care of every detail for you.

Reviewed By AKoch - Chicago | Traveled to
We have used Lesley for several trips including all inclusive trips to Mexico, Jamaica, Dominican Republic as well as cruises to the Bahamas and Belize/Honduras. The biggest trip she has planned for us was a two week trip to Italy for our family of 4. She took care of everything from arranging water taxis in Venice to train tickets to every location. Before we left she gave us a booklet that had a detailed look at our itinerary for each day including any pre-paid tickets. Lesley has traveled enough herself that she knows exactly what you should pre-book and what you can leave to spontaneity. The more you use her the more she understands your tastes, preferences and budget sensitivity and plans accordingly. She is the best. Would recommend her to anyone!!

She is Knowledgeable and Service-Oriented

Reviewed By Diane E - Chicago, IL | Traveled to
Leslie has planned many girls' trips for us over the years. She's always a pleasure to work with. She was especially helpful when we were "stranded" in Mexico while a blizzard raged back home in Chicago, impacting our departure plans. She kept us updated on alternate flights, so we didn't have to waste our extra days re-working our travel itinerary.
