Cathy Roldan

Vista, California Travel Agent

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

Individual and Group Custom Travel Specialist

I began my travel career in 1983 after graduating with a certificate in Travel and Tourism. The travel industry requires me to constantly update my training, and I hold multiple certifications, including:

  • Accredited Cruise Counselor
  • Certified Travel Counselor
  • Cruise ertifications with Princess Commodore, Royal Caribbean, and Celebrity

I cater to groups, large or small, and love designing custom trips. In my company, I launched a division geared towards women. WINGS (Women In Need Of Girlfriends & Sisters) is a great way for women to travel while providing safety in numbers.

My own travels have taken me across the United States, Mexico, Canada, the Caribbean, Ecuador, and France, and I'm just getting started! My cruise experience includes sailing on more than a dozen cruises, as well as participating in ship inspections so that I am familiar with what I sell. I am looking forward to hosting a Mediterranean group cruise next June. Call me for your next vacation!

Western Mediterranean Cruise Perfection!

Reviewed By Nese - CT | Traveled to
Cathy is so organized. Nothing is left to chance (except the fun!) She informed us of everything we needed to know, made advance reservations where appropriate, and gave us options every step of the way. She was super patient when people in our group forgot to turn in forms, didn't respond to emails in timely ways or asked the same questions that she had already answered (especially me!) I would and have recommended her to many friends and will continue to do so. Being on her mailing list is also a treat because it inspires me to think about my next trip. Thanks, Cathy, for a great experience.

European trip planned seamlessly

Cathy coordinated our 2.5 week trip to Spain, Italy and Portugal this past summer. We were constantly on the move, but Cathy's planning helped make it a seamless experience with all the fun and none of the stress that could have been expected. It was an amazing trip!

Vacation fun is her middle name

Reviewed By Griffin - Temecula CA | Traveled to
Liked how she gave us personal attention, it was as if she were planning the trip for herself. She made sure all our needs were taken care of ahead of time with the resort. Also it never bothered her , that I would call her with millions of questions that she addressed. It was our first trip out of the country.

Five Star Service!

Reviewed By Christine J - Beacon, NY | Traveled to
Cathy Roldan did a wonderful job planning a trip for our group of 15! The main part of our trip was a Mediterranean cruise. Cathy made sure the first time cruisers like me knew what to expect and eased my anxieties. She researched each port for us and pointed out highlights for day trips both through the cruise line, private companies and on our own. She also planned time for us before and after the cruise. I spent three magical days in Rome prior to the cruise! Others spent time in other parts of Italy after the cruise. Needless to say, this trip required Cathy's extensive knowledge, detailed planning skills and travel expertise in order for it to be such a fantastic trip! I would recommend Cathy without hesitation to anyone who needs travel planning services, large or small! Thank you Cathy for giving me the trip of a lifetime!

Easy, fast and worry-free

Reviewed By Nicole - San Diego | Traveled to
Cathy is such a pleasure to work with! She's fun, easy-going and gives you individualized service. We've already recommended others to work with her when planning trips, and will continue to do so. We worked with Cathy to book our honeymoon in Bora Bora. There were multiple islands, flights and hotels, and she took the worry away so we could focus on the excitement of it all!
