Kim Bristow

High Point, North Carolina Travel Agent

Disney Specialist and Honeymoon Specialist

My history in the work force started out in the engineering industry, but in 1989 I figured out my passion was in the travel industry. My employment history starts out at American Airlines in reservations and FlyAAway Vacations, and after 5 years I went to work as a Travel Agent. Well as the story goes I never left the travel industry. My love of helping others plan that special trip, helps to make my job special.

Several years ago I was fortunate enough to visit Oahu and stayed at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, which was amazing. The Hilton was a great location and walking distance to many areas of Waikiki Beach. We stayed in a corner suite, and could not believe it but the USAF Thunderbirds were there, and what a show we received. Visiting Pearl Harbor and seeing the Thunderbirds was a once in a lifetime event for me.

My life so far has been amazing, with travel to Hawaii(8 times), St Thomas/St John(spent my birthday week at the Westin), St Martin(planned my son's destination wedding, and it was beautiful), Grand Cayman, Barbados(spent an awesome 8 days), Aruba(drove a jeep all over the island), Alaska(once by land, once by sea, and best was the 13 day cruise/tour), Austria(Christmas Markets are amazing), Germany, France(Paris, Nice, Monaco, Monte Carlo, UK( including London and Wales), Switzerland, Italy,Netherlands, Belgium, Mexico(including Cancun, Cozumel, Puerto Vallarta, Acapulco), Singapore, Indonesia, Australia(including Darwin, Great Barrier Reef, Cairns, Brisbane, and Sydney(including the Blue Mountains). I have been fortunate enough to have toured with Globus and Trafalgar; also cruised with Princess, Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, Celebrity, and Disney. My love of travel not only extends to international destinations, I also love to travel within the USA. Some of my many favorite spots are Disney, Key West, Singer Island, West Palm Beach, Charleston, Lake Toxaway, Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Napa Valley, Hollywood, Branson, Memphis, Hilton Head, New York, and Niagara Falls.

I returned to Australia for a 2nd time last year, but New Zealand was my focus . Delta Airlines service on each flight made the experience worth the trip. The route this year was different, and so were the experiences. The picture of me holding the Koala is really special. It was on my bucket list, and what a special time.

Are you looking for that perfect all inclusive or FIT vacation? Let me help you with a Funjet Vacation. Funjet and I will be with you each step of your planning process, and take a look at their all in one travel protection to give you peace of mind from the what ifs.Also Travel Guard has excellent coverage to ease your mind from worries of the unexpected issues, either sickness or death, before, and during your trip. Ask about the plans that offer kids free travel protection.

Well after completing the Viking River Cruise Specialist Course, and winning a trip on the Viking Var, I look forward to sharing my experiences with you. Image arriving Budapest, and cruising through Austria, and Germany. We also added a 3 day extension in Prague, and I'm sure the Viking experience will be amazing there as well.


Give me a call, and let me help you dream.

And another thing!

So are you ready to dream! Yes that's me up there!
So are you ready to dream! Yes that's me up there!
As you can tell, I love to travel, which allows me the chance to share my experiences with my clients. There are so many experiences that are once in a lifetime moments like hugging a Koala, riding an elephant, snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef, and watching Crocodiles jump 18 ft above the water, right in front of you.


My experience not only includes leisure travel, I have corporate travel and corporate group travel experience. Some of my corporate clients have been with me since the mid 90's.

Creates Magic

Kim is a 5 star travel agent! She is just wonderful; she has made travelling a breeze for us. She can make a multiple stop/multiple accommodation trip a simple endeavor. We simply tell her when and where and what price point on the accommodations and she works her magic. The accommodations are always perfect and the schedule is always correct and non-rushed with satisfactory layover times. She has saved us several hundred dollars each in the past because of her interest and attention to our travel plans. We frequently travel with other couples from different locations and she is able to get us to the destination at the same time without problems. i know she has worked on our travel plans on weekends in order to get the best flights/accommodations possible. I would not travel without her help!!!

The best birthday trip

Reviewed By JRP - Apex, NC | Traveled to Costa Rica ~ Central America
Kim has been my travel agent for over 20 years and if you ever work with her you will understand why. She is very detailed and has great follow up and follow through. She has booked most of my international trips. Our experience includes a group of two to a group of an excess of 250 people. Irregardless of the size of the party, she makes sure everything is in place.

My last trip was my 50th Birthday celebration in Costa Rica with a group of 11 women. Kim helped with narrowing down a destination, creating a payment plan a year in advance for the group, following up with air schedule changes and connections, and many other details. The trip was a huge success from departure until return.

I appreciate her excellent customer service and I always refer her to anyone that I know that is travelling.

Best river cruise ever!

Reviewed By Ed&Beth - Raleigh, NC | Traveled to Danube ~ On the River ~ At Sea
Kim is a fantastic agent. From booking all the normal arrangements she goes it off her way to make sure you experience that little something extra that makes your trip special. She goes the extra mile as well. Recently while my wife and I were about to leave on our trip, problems occurred with our flights. Kim, who was preparing to go on her own vacation, stopped and contacted the airlines and made the corrections necessary for our trip to go off without a problem! The best agent hands down.

Went Above & Beyond!

Reviewed By Meghan & Adam J. - Charlotte, NC | Traveled to Australia & New Zealand
We cannot say enough great things about working with Kim Bristow. We originally found Kim on-line and were impressed by the reviews that she had for planning vacations in Australia.
From our very first call we knew we made the right choice, as she had travelled in Australia extensively and had some great first hand recommendations.
During the entire booking process, she was always quick with you response. She gave us a lot of great options for us to choose from and we were happy that we could customize our vacation to fit our needs.
Once everything was booked, she continually checked -in to make sure we were all set.
Even when we were in Australia she helped when some booking changes came up.
If you are thinking of going to Australia, you should hands down contact Kim.
Thank you Kim! We will be back!

Kim does a great job, I have traveled over 150 days this year and she has booked every trip. All of the airline tickets, hotels, rental cars and other reservations have been handled without flaws and very professionally. Kim has been available anytime I have needed her and is always willing and able to help in any situation. She works hard to make my traveling as easy and stress free as it can be.

The travels of our lives!!!

Reviewed By Silverfox - Cary NC | Traveled to China ~ East and Southeast Asia
Our travels with Kim really started in 1998 with our first out of country trip to Scandanavia. After that we took many wonderful trips always arranged by Kim. She was always caring to our needs and any problem that came up. We wouldn't trust anyone else to plan the wonderful trips we have taken throughout the years. After my husband's death in 2009 I decided to travel to Southeast Asia with friends. Of course Kim helped me every step of the way. And also gave me the courage to travel alone. I have recommended Kim to friends and family . She is the greatest!!

Reviewed By No nickname - Charleston, S.C. | Traveled to USA
Kim Bristow is absolutely the best!! She is very good at helping plan my trips, especially when plans change before my return trip. I have never had a problem with flight plans, cars or hotels caused by Kim. She is also good at talking through connecting flights to be sure I can make connecting flights no matter what airports I'm traveling through. She is a very personable person as well, so you get to know her while making all the travel plans. I sure do miss her if she goes on vacation simply because Kim makes travel planning so easy. I absolutely do recommend her to people doing personal trip planning and business trip planning. I have about ten years of business travel ahead of me, so Kim had better plan on working ten more years! Thanks, Garry Miller
