Gondolas in Venice, 2008 trip.

By the age of 25, I had moved 25 different times. I have visited 47 states. And at the age of 13, I booked my first group travel adventure to Fairbanks, Alaska. To say that the world of travel came naturally to me is an understatement.

Not only do I love to travel, but I believe in it. I feel that by visiting new destinations and meeting people from other cultures, we enhance our lives and allow ourselves to grow as individuals.

I am not a specialist in any one particular area of travel, because I have such broad experience booking vacations to a variety of exotic destinations and I have had the opportunity to plan many different types of trips. The following types of trips, however, are some of my favorites to book:

  • Group Travel — It can be difficult for people to plan group trips without an experienced leader at the helm. I love helping groups enjoy memorable experiences together, and I have had the opportunity to plan many incredible group trips. Some of my group travel itineraries have included a 17-day trip to China, an Alaskan cruise for 54 people, and a cruise for quilters.
  • Cruises — Cruising is the ideal option for many families, because they can enjoy luxury, fine dining and several different destinations all for a reasonable price.
  • Military Family Vacations — I love helping the members of our military and their families enjoy special time together, since I have been in a military family all my life; as the "brat", and the wife, as well. Many cruise lines offer discounted rates for military families, and I can provide these families with additional information on these amazing rates and other military promotions.

The words of Mark Twain have always stood out to me: "Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness." There is so much truth in this statement. When you visit a new destination and you see how other people live and why they live that way, it's impossible to judge them for it. We can all stand to benefit from being less judgmental and more open-minded, which is why I encourage everyone to travel.

Dream it, call me, and relax! Contact me now, and we can get started planning today.

Great to the last mile!

I have worked with Terry's Travel for several years. I find Terry knowledgeable, helpful, and sincerely interested in what I want and need, right down to the last mile. She thinks ahead of difficulties I might have and helps me anticipate items that could otherwise frustrate me or possibly interrupt my trip! Terry makes the miles secondary to the pleasure!

Our retirement trip!

Reviewed By The Jorgensens - Providence, Utah | Traveled to Niagara Falls ~ New York ~ USA
I asked Terry to book an Amtrak train trip to Niagara Falls and New York City as a surprise for my husband's retirement gift. We just got back and everything was perfect. She really listened when I told her my vague idea of what I wanted to do and turned it into a reality. Terry thought of so many details that made the trip worry free for me and a great memory for the two of us. It would have been a mistake for me to try to book this by myself. I never would have gotten the timing of catching three different trains right. Terry made sure we had transportation arranged for in both places after the train, and our hotels were within walking distance of so many places we wanted to visit. The hotels we stayed at were excellent, and the passes for the attractions were just perfect for people who had never been to either of these places. Thanks Terry. I can't wait to do another trip that Terry arranges for me. I'll definitely use Terry's Travel again.

It was so nice to know everything had been taken care of.

Reviewed By momof8 - Farmington, Utah | Traveled to
We have really enjoyed having Terry as our agent for several of our vacations, both as a family and also as a couple. She is knowledgeable, experienced, and willing to work with you at any budget level. She helped us understand what we would need to prepare and plan for during our first trip to Europe, which was so helpful! She is willing to search for the best prices, or allow us to search and then use her expertise in arranging for our flights, etc. She has made traveling a breeze, and so much fun!
