My Travel Experiences
Would you like to speed up your process going through TSA?
Here are some suggestions to make your next trip to the airport a smoother experience …

You already have your mind set on many things for your upcoming meeting or training seminar. Remembering what to pack shouldn’t have ... Read more from my Packing for a Business Trip story.
Travel Agencies have been around for over 100 years. Things have changed quite a bit since then. Travel Agencies originally primarily focused on leisure travel. It wasn’t until later that business travel management came about and business travel management companies were introduced. The business traveler now requires more service than ever ...

Hello Laurie! Our trip was absolutely AMAZING! The trip could not have gone better- our flights, hotel, tours.... everything went flawlessly! The weather was great- I can't tell you how happy we were with the whole experience. Absolutely everything went off without a hitch thanks to all of your help and guidance! I honestly would not have changed a thing- it was truly the trip of a lifetime :) I can't thank you enough for all of your help and I will be telling all my friends and family to "Go see Laurie at Travel Leaders!" when planning their vacations! Thank you again for everything Laurie! We really, really appreciate it!

Wonderful trip to paradise!
Laurie is a definite 5 - I give Laurie my ideas, requests, and price range, etc. and she researches and follows through with exactly what I am looking for. She answered all my questions and offered advice and perspective. She was prompt and thorough and made sure I had all my travel documents. We had a fantastic trip with no worries about minor details.
I appreciate your kind words and love hearing that everything went well for you. I look forward to working with you again in the future.

We couldn't have done it without her
Laurie built a 2 week itinerary for us, always listening to what we valued and wanted in our trip. She was incredibly prompt and responsive to all questions and concerns that we had.
Laurie was able to walk us through some confusing paperwork, made suggestions that enhanced our trip, and even contacted us at a hotel in Australia to make sure we knew about a change in tour plans. Having never traveled to Australia before, Laurie made the trip comfortable for us and a "once in a lifetime" experience. We couldn't have done it without her.
We would highly recommend Laurie to travelers who want to collaborate in defining and planning their upcoming travel.
I really enjoyed assisting the two of you on your fabulous trip. I'm so glad you had a wonderful time and were able to come home with many great memories. Thank you again for your business.

Planes, Trains & Auto Rentals
We flew to Niagra Falls, took a train (sleeper car) to Nova Scotia, flew to Bar Harbor, Maine to see more falls colors. It was a trip of a lifetime.
We are unaccustomed to making our own travel plans, and when we didn’t know where to find our shuttle, she calmly told us where to meet them. Knowing she “had our backs” was a huge peace-of-mind.
Helped us find accommodations within our budget. It was a delightful, memorable experience.
I'm was happy to plan your anniversary trip. So glad you had a wonderful time. I look forward to assisting you in your future travel needs also.
Thanks Carol. I always love working with you on your adventures also.
