Laura Gibson

Norwalk, Connecticut Travel Agent

An independent agent with KHM Travel Group in Brunswick, OH, a Travel Leaders Network affiliate agency

Destination & Tour Specialist

What makes me different from working with any other Travel Agent?

1. I am a perfectionist. I will research to find you the best prices possible for your honeymoon or vacation.

2. I will go to any length to get what a client wants.

3. I am a very pleasant and friendly person to work with.

4. I am always on top of the great deals available or create promos for you.

5. I will do my best so my client(s) come home happy.

I am very knowledgeable in Jamaica. I have visited Jamaica 3 times  2014, 2016, and 2017 and have stayed or toured 35+ resorts. If you want to visit Jamaica I am your go to person. I love the island and what it offers to travellers who want some adventure as well as some relaxation time. There are many sightseeing opportunities. I was able to become a Jamaican Bobsledder, climb Dunns River Falls and visit Rick's Cafe in Negril. That was really fun!

I have also been to the Riviera Maya, Mexico and stayed and visited 4 Riu Properties in Playa del Carmen.

I am knowledgeable in All Inclusive Resorts in Mexico, Caribbean, and Costa Rica. I have also put together personalized Independent Tours for clients in Greece, Italy, Tahiti, and Hawaii.

The Destinations I am a Specialist in are Jamaica, Cancun and the Riviera Maya and the Hawaiian Islands.

I am a Cancun Counselor by the Cancun Travel Institute. I have knowledge in Cancun and the Riviera Maya. I visited the Riviera Maya in 2015 and enjoyed my time and visiting on of the excursion opportunities that there are in Cancun in the Riviera Maya. I visited Xcaret Park. A park for couples and families. I loved swimming with the dolphins.

When it comes to Resorts, I am a Certified Sandals Specialst an AMResorts Master Agent for All-Inclusive Resorts in Mexico, the Caribbean, and Costa Rica. I am also a Riu Specialist as well which has resorts all over the world, not just in Mexico, Caribbean, and Costa Rica.

I am a Globus Tour Expert and Monograms Booking Agent specializing in Independent Travel and Tour packages.

I have put together Foreign Independent Tours together for clients. They include Greece and the Greek Isles, Italy, and Tahiti, Bora Bora/New Zealand. I have really enjoyed putting these personalized tours together for my clients. They are exactly what the client wants. No escorted tours and they create their own Itinerary. What's better than that. I want to put more personalized tours together for clients I have loved doing it!

I also enjoy group travel. I create promotions for holidays and music events. This is something new and I am very much enjoying. These promotions are Black Cats Travel Promotions and you can find it on my website under Sales/Featured Promotions.

Royal Caribbean's Autism Friendly Program

I am a Royal Caribbean WOW Expert. As an Educator, when I learned of Royal Caribbean's "Autism Friendly" Certification Program, I had to take the course. Royal Caribbean is the only cruise line specializiing in Autism and resorts as well as Disney. Resorts and cruiselines help those children with special needs, but Royal Caribbean has it's own program geared just for Autistic Children. Royal Caribbean has reached "Autism of the Seas" Certification.

Our dream honeymoon brought to life

Reviewed By Amanda - Astoria, NY | Traveled to Moorea Island ~ French Polynesia ~ South Pacific
Laura was wonderful at every step of the process. First, she helped us settle on the right destination for us with everything we were looking for in a honeymoon, including an overwater bungalow. She had every single detail taken care of so that we didn't have to think about getting to or from the airport, hotel, or excursions. She also went above and beyond with friendly reminder emails, helpful hints about what to bring with us, and recommendations of the best activities to do. She was extremely responsive to all communications and was a pleasure to work with. We are so happy that we had Laura to guide us through planning the perfect vacation.

Honeymooning with ease!

Reviewed By Lauren - Trumbull, Connecticut | Traveled to
Laura was very easy to work with. I work night shift, so I was able to communicate everything with her via email which was very helpful. She was able to give me multiple options for tours and travel accommodations, and adjusted our trip to meet our individual wants and needs within our price range. It's definitely a service worth using!

Extremely Helpful and Responsive

Reviewed By Happy Traveler - Tenafly, NJ | Traveled to
Laura was somewhat new at this career when we asked her to help us find a place that met our likes and avoided our dislikes in a vacation destination. She worked very hard on this, searching for places in many different possible destinations and gave us some good choices with great rates and just what we wanted. I was very happy with how hard she worked and how she really listened to what we wanted. I highly recommend using Laura for your travel needs. The only reason I gave her four instead of five stars on the "Knowledgeable" category is because she is still learning the business, but her willingness to do research more than made up for that.

Energetic and knowledgeable

Reviewed By Gibbs - New Haven Ct. | Traveled to
I had a very informative and educational conversation with Laura about my honeymoon. She went above and beyond what I was looking for in information on Mexico. She was very knowledgeable of Riviera Maya and Riu Hotels. We loved or stay at Riu Palace. The timing and location recommended by Laura was spot on to what we were looking for. Looking forward to going back, with Laura's help on making the best of our time on vacation.

So Much Help!

Reviewed By Honeymooners - Middletown, CT | Traveled to
Laura did a wonderful job helping my wife and I set up our dream honeymoon. Laura was very timely in responses to our questions and requests. She was patient with our decisions and always provided exceptional information when we requested it. She went above and beyond to make sure that our honeymoon went as smoothly as possible and it definitely did. She was very polite throughout the entire process. I think a couple things that could have gone better is that we should have talked on the phone more. That would have helped to clear up a lot of things much quicker than through email but that's probably the only thing that could've gone better. We would 100% recommend Laura for any trips or services that you are interested in. She is awesome to work with!
