Nicole Gilbert

Ringwood, New Jersey Travel Agent

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

Full Service Travel Specialist

When it comes to booking vacations for my clients, I'm an advocate for the road less traveled. By this, I mean that I love to encourage my clients to consider a destination that they might not have otherwise thought about booking. If they are looking for an adventurous trip filled with beauty and wonder, I might recommend the stunning Central American country of Costa Rica. A traveler hoping to enjoy a slower pace and relaxed atmosphere might truly appreciate the culture of Italy.

Above all, my goal is to achieve 100% customer satisfaction with each of my clients. I'm here to plan the trip of their dreams, not the trip of mine. I listen to my clients, and I work to ensure that they get to do everything they want on their vacation while also staying within their budget.

I specialize in booking the following destinations:

  • Mexico — I am familiar with the many of the resorts in the different regions of Mexico, allowing me to provide my clients with expert recommendations for their upcoming trips.
  • The Caribbean — Each Caribbean island has its own flavor and atmosphere, and I love to connect my clients with the island feel that is right for them. Whether you are seeking adventure, romance or relaxation, I can help you plan the perfect getaway.
  • Costa Rica — I have traveled to this destination twice, and I love to recommend it to my clients. Between my professional experience and my personal adventures, I can create the ideal itinerary for you.
  • Western Europe — My own travels have taken me throughout this continent, so I am very familiar with each country. Let me coordinate your European tour today!

My love of travel was sparked at the age of 16, when my parents took my sister and I on a whirlwind tour throughout 8 European countries. Between sampling the local foods, seeing some of the most famous sites in the world, and interacting with the friendly local people, I was hooked. I have instilled the same love of travel in my daughters, and I hope to inspire my clients to continue to explore the world around them.

I can't wait to hear about your ideas for your next amazing vacation. Contact me today in order to make your dreams come true!

Iwill highly recommend you. Your professionalism, knowledge and dedication united our family for a trip that will never be forgotten! Thanks for everyth

Extremely satisfied

Reviewed By Regina - Cortlandt Manor | Traveled to
We have traveled four times under Nicole's guidance. One was a large family trip, another was a trip with our granddaughter , another as a couple and one was a cruise to Alaska with 4 other friends. Our friends were also happy with the arrangements that Nicole made for us. It was our first cruise for all. She answered all of our many questions. We would not go back to someone who didn't have the experience and expertise to arrange trips. All of our trips have exceeded our expectations and we certainly plan on using her services in the future.

The trip was all that I hoped for and due to her planning.

Reviewed By Carmen - Dover, NJ | Traveled to
My trip this summer was to St Petersburg, Russia and Poland. Though I have traveled extensively I was not knowledgeable of the language or the location. Nicole's planning: air, hotel, tours was excellent. I had private tours in Russia which were the best ever! I have traveled via Nicole several times now and very highly recommend her!

So easy!

Reviewed By Lisa - Raleigh, NC | Traveled to
Nicole has helped myself and my family on several occasions to plan trips. The most recent one is to the Dominican Republic. She was quick to respond on possibilities, found us flights that were cheaper than we expected and sent us wonderful information to have all the details ready to go when we leave in a few weeks. We are so pleased with her diligence, dedication and specialized service. Can't wait to talk with her again for 2016 family vacation!

Awesome trip

Reviewed By Lara - Ringwood, NJ | Traveled to
Nicole never stopped looking for the best trip for our first family All-Inclusive vacation. With a tight budget in place, Nicole was persistent in finding the best value for the best price. Our trip to Punta Cana was awesome, from the pick-up at the airport, to the Hotel and return home it was seamless and without any mishaps. I highly recommend Nicole for your next vacation planning adventure.

Bound for Travel - Nicole Gilbert is fantastic!

Reviewed By Mimi Blake - Stamford, CT | Traveled to
I contacted Nicci to help book my family's first all-inclusive vacation. We were scouting out a few options that ranged from Caribbean to Mexico, and ultimately she helped us decide that Beaches Turks & Caicos was the best choice for us. Our son is 3, and this resort had everything we needed. Nicci helped us set up a few special arrangements, which really made our son's day! She was very knowledgeable on the resort, island and how to maximize our time there. I would highly recommend Nicci and Bound for Travel to help navigate booking/planning out your next vacation!

First cruise for us -a little nervous

Reviewed By Ela - New York, NY | Traveled to
We are an older couple, who although have traveled extensively throughout our lives had never been on a cruise. So I took a friend's advice and contacted Nicole. She was very informative and listened to our concerns. Based on her expertise and our background, she offered us several options, but gently steered us towards the cruise we ultimately went on. The ship was not overly large which had been a concern of ours and the ports we docked at were places we had never been and therefore an adventure. We went from the Middle East to Singapore, fantastic! The cruise line she chose for us was perfect for our needs and exceeded our expectations. Nicole was quite knowledgeable and prompt in her response to our many queries as to visas, cultural differences and what to expect on the ship. Nicole clearly loves what she does and was very enthusiastic about our trip. We would definitely take advantage of her expertise in the future!

Great Customer Service

Reviewed By Dee - Schuylkill Haven, Pennsylvania | Traveled to
Nicole has planned several vacations for our family now with the most recent one to Mexico. She found us a new place with exactly what we were looking for in our price range. The place was amazing and I would highly recommend it. She also goes the extra mile to make sure that when you are leaving the country you are aware of things you might not think of. The nice thing about working with Nicole is that no trip is a bother. We have also worked with her for a weekend get-a-way. I have referred several friends to Nicole and they would all say the same she was great to work with and patient! I would highly recommended using Nicole for your next vacation! It's great to work with someone that truly loves what she is doing and wants you to love your time away!

Never used a travel agent before

Reviewed By Mila B. - New York, New York | Traveled to
Having never booked any kind of trip through a travel agent, I was a bit skeptical, but a friend had recommended Nicole to me and so I thought I'd take a chance. Well, she suggested a cruise to the Caribbean as I was going with my adult daughter. To say my expectations were surpassed would be an understatement. I had also never been on a cruise and it was all she said it would be and more. Nicole explained the ins and outs of a cruise, additionally giving us some tips we would have never thought of (bringing a change of clothes/bathing suit in a carryon, as your luggage does not always arrive at your cabin as quickly as you do). She booked some excursions on our stops based on our tastes and basically took care of any anxieties I was feeling. Nicole is a knowledgeable, personable and receptive person who listens to you and as such makes for a wonderful travel companion, even though she's not physically with you. I would recommend her, and have, to all my friends.

Fantastic Family Reunion Cruise

Reviewed By Kim - Ringwood, NJ | Traveled to
Flawless - and quite an impressive feat considering there were 50 relatives, traveling from 7 different states, ranging in age from 2-75 years old. Nicole coordinated everything from initial brainstorming ideas to activities both on and off the ship and even rescheduled flights when a storm cancelled flights from the Port of Miami to various home airports in the New York area. Nicole was professional and well versed in all aspects of the trip. It was my first cruise and she was an invaluable resource. We worked very closely together. I not only had an amazing vacation, I gained a friend through the process!

She did all the work!

Nicole planned a wonder vacation for my family to Italy. She recommended hotel/apartment, tours and transportation all turned out to be beautiful and perfect! We traveled by plane, trains, and car service to 4 areas of Italy- Venice, Rome, Sorrento and Capri. All took place without an issue. Nicole is a pleasure to work with and really took the time out to understand what we needed as we were traveling with kids! I highly recommend Nicole.
