Warm Weather Escape Artist

As a travel consultant my goal is to help others discover the joys of travel, experience new cultures, and visit the places of their dreams. My favorite part of being a travel consultant is touching base with a client upon their return and hearing the stories of their travels. I learn just as much from those conversations as I do while researching a destination.

One of the best trips of our lives

Reviewed By Trish Thompson - Hastings, MN | Traveled to Cancun ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
"One of the best trips of our lives".....is how I would describe our Cancun
vacation in March, 2017. AND, it was all due to the help and professional
guidance of our travel agent, Amber McLaughlin. Though my husband and I have never personally met Amber, our daughter recommended her and what a great recommendation this was. I have since recommended her to the rest of my family who will take this same vacation in December.
Since we have traveled to lots of foreign spots, we were familiar with how traveling works. However, this particular trip was a once-in-a-lifetime adventure for our family of five because Amber was able to remove all the 'pain-in-the-neck' details that we have encountered with other trips. She carefully arranged non-stop flight times while accommodating all of our ages - from 5 - 71. She sent us information for helping us choose the best resort rooms and took care of all the transportation both coming and going. Great gal/great trip.

Cruising with the grandkids

Reviewed By Joe & Kathy - McClelland, Iowa | Traveled to Nassau ~ Bahamas ~ Caribbean
This is the second Disney vacation that Amber assisted us with. She did such a great job 3 years ago assisting us with a family vacation to Disney World that we knew she would do another fantastic job with assisting us with planning a Disney cruise. Amber pays attention to the details and provided us with many travel/activity options.

My Favorite (and Best) Travel Agent

Reviewed By Sandra G - Bloomington, MN | Traveled to Mexico
I've worked with Amber on numerous occasions and she is second to none! She's booked multiple trips to Mexico for my husband and me; a group trip of 14 persons to Mexico; a European trip including both England and Ireland for my Mom and me; and 2 girls' getaways (one to Scottsdale and one to Hawaii)! Amber can do it ALL. And, she does it effortlessly with enthusiasm and a smile.

Every trip I plan includes Amber (and yours should too)! She is spot-on when it comes to thinking of things that I don't account for (what types of activities does everyone like; is everyone the same energy-level; etc.). She is also very cognizant of finding the right price and the right amenities for what I want to do. She makes recommendations for the best sites/hotels/resorts, etc.

Lastly, Amber is really focused on making sure that we have a great time. I can tell that she is passionate about what she does and wants to ensure that we (and every one of her travelers) has an excellent experience

Amber did a great job helping us plan our honeymoon! We told her where we wanted to go, how much we wanted to spend, and everything turned out amazing! She was very responsive to our emails from the time between booking the trip and the actual departure date! We had trouble with our airline not allowing us to check in online, but we called Amber right away and it was all taken care of within a few hours!

Perfect Honeymoon

Reviewed By Brittany - Maple Grove, MN | Traveled to Riviera Maya ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
When we initially contacted Amber, we were just looking around at places that we could potentially go for our honeymoon, as we were kind of clueless and had no idea where to start. I emailed Amber on Friday evening, and by Tuesday evening we had our entire trip booked with her. She asked us several questions as to what was important to us, and then found 15 options in 3 locations with the exact room we would have, the flight times/airlines, what all was included, etc. I was nervous we would have little things pop up that had fallen through cracks but the entire trip went off without a hiccup. Because of Amber, we were able to thoroughly enjoy our honeymoon and not have a single worry in the world. If we take a trip in the future, I wouldn’t trust anyone but her!! Best decision we’ve made!

Great relaxing escape.

Reviewed By Amanda - Maple Grove, MN | Traveled to Mexico
My girlfriends and I booked an all inclusive hotel in Puerta Viarta. It was helpful having Amber narrow down our options based on our budget. Prior to that we had been spending hours online. She had first hand experience with which hotels were the best for our needs and budget. We had a great time. The hotel was Amazing. We did not want to end up at a Spring Break hotel and she helped us navigate the choices. I would go to Amber again. The hotel was perfect for what we were looking for.

Reviewed By Jeff - Bemidji, MN | Traveled to Playa Del Carmen ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
From the start of the planning process Amber was very friendly to deal with. I was happy to hear a response back in a timely manor with details about options for different resorts in Mexico. I had a large group of people traveling so we had quite a few hurdles to jump and Amber handled them very well. As far as the trip, we had a great time and everyone was impressed with the resort! Just wish we had more time there! I would recommend Amber to anyone.

Unbelievable destination wedding

Reviewed By Jamie and Robert Henson - MPLS/Saint Paul, MN | Traveled to Punta Cana ~ Dominican Republic ~ Caribbean
She booked 60+ people for our destination wedding. My guests shared they had a positive experience and she was very helpful. It felt very stress free working with her as a bride. Which made planning for the wedding even easier. If there was a concern or issue it was taken care of and usually before I even was aware that there was an issue. Thank you Amber for taking care of all the travel arrangements and making it so easy.

Amber is knowledgeable, pleasant, helpful and able to answer our questions. And, when she did not know the answer, she asked others in her corporation, by sending an email.

Our Once In a Lifetime Dream Vacation

Reviewed By Brook - Brooklyn Park, MN | Traveled to Aruba ~ Caribbean
We came to Amber knowing we wanted to go to a Caribbean Island, but unsure of which one, as it was very overwhelming looking into it ourselves. We told her our wish list for our vacation. She went through a couple of islands with pros and cons, and sent us home with websites to look through. We decided on Aruba. Our next visit was very smooth. We told her the dates we were interested in and she booked the whole trip right there. We do not travel a lot so this was very helpful.

Our resort was everything we hoped it would be. There was plenty to do on site, but we also took advantage of the many tours offered. We requested an oceanview room and that is exactly what we got. It was gorgeous and just wonderful to walk right out our patio door to the beach.

If we were to travel to the Caribbean again, I would choose a more tropical, rather than desert landscape. The resort areas were beautiful, but the rest of the island was barren.

Thank you Amber for all of your hel

Best Spring Break Family Vacation

Amber was very helpful from start to finish. After listening to our thoughts and wishes for our family vacation, she was able to provide us with some very different options and helped us make the best choice for our family. We are not seasoned travelers, but Amber made the whole process easy for us. Amber made all the arrangements, booked the flights, resort reservations and included transportation to and from the airport. The entire trip was seamless for our family. When we called back after booking to inquire about an upgrade, she was even able to do so at a discounted price! I know this may not have been her doing, but we still give her all the credit! Amber answered all of our questions quickly and efficiently and with a smile. If she happened to be out of the office, one of her co-workers were always available to help. We will definitely use Amber McLaughlin and Travel Leaders again.

I met Amber nine years ago when she planned a trip for my husband and me to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. She sent us to Couples Negril, in Negril, Jamaica. Our trip and celebration exceeded all of our expectations!

Amber is professional, conscientious and very knowledgeable about destinations for any occasion or celebration. She is particularly knowledgeable about beach destinations outside of the U.S. Amber is also patient and caring, and will spend time listening to all of your wishes. She will put together a number of options for you and is willing to discuss them with you in person, by email or phone. She is quick to respond and always pleasant.

Since our first trip, Amber has sent us to Negril, Jamaica; Ocho Rios, Jamaica; Riviera Maya, Mexico; and Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. Every trip has been awesome with memories that will last forever.

I highly recommend Amber as your Travel Agent. Amber will make sure that you have the very best travel experience!
